Are you buying drivers by their beauty ?

I simlpy adore non conventional drivers like this one.
I canīt wait until they come on market .

This is going to be a killer high-end bass driver.

Because my 2, 8 cu.ft. enclosures are occupying space that I wouldn't otherwise use.

I doubt it.

Have you overlooked the fact that these things need enclosures too?

So what? The principe of desig is superior to standard large cone drivers , an is much smaller , without cone distorsion and mass. The enclosure is needed in all bass designes , the internal shape,rigidity , lack of reflections bla,bla , that is important for good refproduction

Why are you so conservative

Why? The bigger LATs, IMO, would make PERFECT dipole drivers. You could use them as speaker stands for decent-sized bookshelf speakers (e.g. Adire HE10.1), or stack a bunch of the small ones for a dipole line array that would have significantly more Vd than an equivalent-width column of cone drivers.

Or how about an I-B install with a giant LAT (or LAT array) mounted between two studs? Again, more Vd with less effort. Square holes are (marginally) easier to cut than round ones.

IMO, the LAT is not going to replace the cone woofer, but the columnar form factor will offer interesting new ways to get lots of bass in home and especially car systems.

Are we talking square holes for flush mounting or not? A circular driver is 1000x easier for me to flush mount then a square driver.

OK ive had another look at these things and they do look interesting, however they mention you can use them in a sealed enclosure? How? Am I just being stupid in not being able to see how you can create a completely sealed enclosure with these "drivers"?
