Well, I've been down with a serious case of the flu the last few days, spending time in bed fantasizing of french nurses barely dressed..

Anyway, some more pictures... my appoligies for not delivering up to the standards of some of the forum members here; hifi and photography obviously go hand ind hand still! But I have only two hands, both occupied with creating speakers so please bear with me.

1. Front bottom, chassis made from CNC'ed 1 1/4" aluminium, anodized black.
2. Tower of Power, standing next to some temporary sattelites for testing.
3. A look inside the slot....

Well, a lot of my friends have Leica's, my wife has got Leica's but personally I haven't developed any serious interest in photography and probably never will!

Concerning frequency range I have barely started testimg, waiting for some parts to get going so I really don't know the behaviour above 150 Hz, the current xover freq. That being said, there are some nasty TRUE 180 Hz horns coming my way later this year, so I'm not too concerned.

Happy? Absolutely. Endless and effortless power, combined with speed and attack all the way down to very low listening leves, and that is truly important and difficult to obtain. Shure, a lot of money involved but bass like this you need to go to a very well set up concert to match.

180 Hz horns will be seeing ALE drivers later this year.

Hi Slo, good to see you! Just finished 3 straight hours of listening - almost got thrown out of the chair on a couple of occasions! Scary power, and who said OB bass can't be physical? I went to see my nephews band rehearse yesterday, and that bass drum pounding my chest was pretty similar to what I have at home.

All in due time, Audio.
I guess a "OMG" would be inadequate right now?
At least u live up 2 ur name (Which means "moneydrain" for the non-norwegian" )
I'm considering something ala yours, but a little more discrete with (only) 2x15 pr side.
Having a little listen to Yggdrasill's PC-monitors, i know there might be a future for "slots" at my place
