Default New Tang Band Speakers

I got a mailing list email from Tang Band today announcing 2" x 3" oval full range, and 6" x 9" subwoofer drivers.
Three FR - W23-1046S , W23-973S and W23-972S .
One woofer - W69-1042 .

With close spacing enabled by the flattened oval cone and frame shapes, these look just the ticket for building line source speaker systems.

Eric / - I just thought you speaker guys might like to know.

Wow, I haven't been to Nuera's website in a while. I like that new site design - very professional.

One can finally build a pair of nice TangBand powered towers using a 1" neodymium tweeter, a W6-789S as midbass, and then two W69-1042s as powered subs in each tower.

Who, me?

Actually, for a while, I was considering the possibility of building some slim towers using some Tangband tweeter, a Tangband 4" PPM woofer, and four of the tangband 5" "subwoofers" that Parts Express carries. But I'm happy with the speakers I've got right now, and the idea was just sort of speculation.

Anyways, don't let that stop you from building it. If it were left to me, I don't think I would ever really get around to building it. I have lots of ideas, but they kind of run out of steam after a while. I've been meaning to catch up on my NSB-Daline project. Those NSBs in my grandparents' basement aren't going anywhere until I stick them in something, so I just need to ask a few more questions and then I will be able to hammer out the design.

And how do the Tang Bangs sound anyways? The new eliptical sub looks cosmetically great, especially considering the price. May be I am wrong, but I feel like cosmetics is a big thing when it comes to drivers, not so much the overall factors such as colors, etc, but how it is put together and the materials, ie solid feel.
