Default aerial lr5 clone...

everything I could possibly want for hifi and ht is with this speaker. unfortunately, they cost $9000 a pair. all I know about this design is they use scan drivers. anybody else have any detailed info about this speaker?

It would be nice if you included a picture and/or a website with info about the speaker. Our Audio Club had a pair of Aerial 7B speakers for a few years. Not a bad speaker, but I've heard better (including some of my own designs).

Best Regards,
TerryO

Sreten has provided you with many links to worthwhile designs. Look these over carefully and ask questions.

The Aerial speakers aren't bad at all. They're very well made, well finished, use excellent drivers and, in the case of the 7B...sound fine, if somewhat unremarkable.
However, the fact is that you can have excellent sounding speakers for "much less" money.

Best Regards,
TerryO
