I've worked on RADAR systems that were smaller than that!!! I like the crazy way you have managed to incorporate the design as a support for the rafter running across the room as well - very ingenious!!!

What material is the "horn flare" made from???? Looks like paper mache or some type of formed sawdust particles bonded together.

mario,marco,eugenio,bei in the photo - hmmmmmm - not Irish names that I am familiar with...... Other than on St. Patrick's day when everyone is Irish!!!

Thanks ZM

I'll bet it took a lot of time cutting up vino bottle stoppers and gluing them on - not to mention doing such a thing after drinking the vino to get the corks....

I think that the sugar buzz (or something else buzz) has worn off like children at a birthday party. Raising cwazy helllllllll for a couple of hours and then are all burned out and taking a nap. Shhhhhhhhhh - let them sleep and enjoy.

In fact - if you looked carefully enough you would have noticed - that beam is bearing on two external pylons and that the speaker system is thus suspended from the beam giving a fully floating speaker system! disconnected from the listening room except by signal wiring!!!

I had a system based on the hovercraft principle ... another failure as I failed to allow for the fact that the required thrust required x2 RR Merlin engines which produced some 220+ Db just to keep steady hover position. As for the "Sweet Spot" that was some 8.5 miles away.

Of course the now redundant Harrier VTOs were then too busy in air displays and they wouldn't let be borrow a couple for experimental purposes.
