So THATS where my pens got to, must've fallen off the desk in heaven at my workstation when I wasn't looking.

Have fun
HA...HA..HA...

Seems that there's no end to stupidity.

Looking at those things it appears they are 99% cabinet/architecture, which being so overbuilt contribute virtually ZERO to sound quality.

So basically the buyer is getting a very expensive block of milled aluminum.

Nah they even come with their own horoscope and depending on the time of year play deep full clean bass. On some other months however the bass becomes a bit boomy and the highs have less clarity.
You have to feed them 100$ bills then to get rid of that muddy sound.
After 3 years you get a free replacement from your manufacturer!

Only works if you hire no-name musicians. Anybody with a recognisable name will see that as a corporate gig and charge you accordingly.
For that kind of money you probably get one or may be two gigs in total.

In the late '90s here in the UK there was a horrible little pop band called 'Steps' who broke any number of sales records but they still made more money from corporate gigs than from either touring or record sales.

The ones shown aren't even real- they're quite obviously renders.

Pathetic, poor design. There are many trash like this at the high end. Think Goldmund's big system- worst case enclosure design, but their fancy frame lets you time align. So much trash....

And then there are some very nice loudspeakers- but those are more common in the 5 figure range than the 6, where the speakers are less about sound and more about statements.

Those ugly things the OP referenced to.....weigh 2800 Lbs each.........A big chunk of milled aluminum..........Now mind you I am all for large masses for enclosures but really now.
I sure do wish someone in high places could purchase one of these just to pull it apart just so to find fairly common components inside...............just to put to rest the hyper industry.
Even as ART they fail miserably. If they are such superior machines, why dont we find such hyper $$$$ loudspeakers in large corporate studios??

Only because I was genuinely surprised by how much money there is in corporate gigs.
