Default Winter projects ... what do you think of ?

i am currently in the final stages of planning my many winter projects ..

I need to know one thing before i continue on though ..

What do you guys think of the Manger transducers ?

I have always been interested into this "driver" and its technology .. have any of you listen to loudspeakers using this driver?

What was your impression ?

I always liked the idea of a 1 way 150hz + system
( i guess we all did .. no phase problems , point source easy )

Do you guys think that this driver is able to match the quality of the very best systems we are doing here ?

my $$$ is not unlimited for my room project ,
but i'd rather spend some money on special drivers
( if the performance is there .. ) than on cheaper
ones, having to result in using 100s of em, wihtout any advantages other than spl ...

I have to say that what i am looking for is low distortion, quality sound reproduction before SPL in my personal room
( wich is quite small beeing 10 by 16 approx )

what i was planning was something like :

W-Frame ( + personal mods to this design )
of either 2 18" ( prolly be McCauley 16hz one )
or 2 time 2 15" of similar capabilities

2 times : 6 to 9 woofers open baffle + some twits
( either ribbons or multiple high quality dome twits )

OR it could only be 2 or 4 Manger drivers
+ the same subs or similar ...

so that is why i need some more information on the manger
performance, since i find em interesting, but wanst' able to located any info at all on this site ..

thanks all

another thing ..

with this kind of setup (manger prolly on an OB )
i would require no complicated Xover
i could bring the system elsewhere and connect on their stuff without worrying too much of xover

cause if i go multiple route, i'd have to use my computer for Xo
wich is not quite as easy as it seems for now ..

Read much on manger transducers ..
i am mostly interested, but i'd like fellow comments
on how all those nice words and specs
goes in reality ...

i'd do a dual manger OB
maybe 4 mangers + 4 18" McCauley ..that would be nice for my stupidly small room
