Looks like the Vifa TC9FD -an irritatingly good little 3 1/2in unit for the price (about $12 / 14 Euro). High Q & Fs though, so you need multiples with Eq, as is presumably the case here, or in clones of Roger Russel's IDS 25 line array, if you want to take them low.

Looks like you have a focal point at a distance from the speakers front, towards the listener. Could you please elaborate on your idea here?

Sure, it's a focused array, set for a 9 foot distance.
There are 4 channels on the 1 panel. The top outer 8 drivers on each outer side are crossed over to 18 drivers on the corresponding side. The top 8 drivers are actively crossed at 300Hz, 1st order. They are the ones running RACE.

I knew you'd stop by Radugazon
I wanted to start a new thread using img code so that everyone could see the pics. not just us members. Also spreading the ambiophonic love.
I haven't tried any matrix wiring yet, I still haven't properly tested them yet. I've only done in room measurements because its been raining here constantly. I have to test them outside.
But, so far its all I hoped it would be
