I was very impressed with a pair of the Diablos in a shop, huge sound that filled an even bigger room with a very high ceiling.
I did have difficulty however equating the 8,500 price tag to such a small box even if the sound was stunning.
I would love to hear a pair of the big Diablos.

Referring to the speakers in post 6 by Sreten, as well as time alignment, would it not also be the case, that as the individual drivers have their own boxes, separating the boxes (even by a small space) will give a large reduction in interference between the separate enclosures.

At this point a proper technical analysis is futile, its a striking visual feature.
Dang the poor thing looks sad - all slumped over like that.

Each driver is in its own enclosure. You then have to connect them together, preferably while time aligning the drivers.

The design seems like a perfectly reasonable and practical way to do this, and is not a gimmick.

Would you care to explain why you think so? It's the whole point of this thread.

Focal Grande Utopia technologies: adjustable Focus Time.

Do some research on time alignment and phase correct speaker design.

I wonder at which frequency they cross the tweeter in.
The hi-mid spacing would indicate it should be something around 800-1500Hz but but given the number of driversI assume it is much higher than that.
A flawed design IMO.

Didn't go deep into explanations, lots of words to say nothing.
