Default FPS Flat Panel Speakers?

Does anybody have any experience with these?

Magnetic planar.

Flat Panel Speakers FPS USA

Available at FPS USA Flat Speakers and Shop | Flat Panel Speakers | Planar Transducers | OEM | Flatt Speakers

Used here: StereoTimes - FPS Model F1 Flat-Panel Hybrid Speaker System

But the only thing I've found on this forum is posts from folks like me asking if any one has any experience with them. The most recent was 2014, with no response. The next most recent a decade prior. So these are hardly new.

The seem like they must be in the budget, 'just ok' quality realm, except for the use by Von Schweikert.

Their half-inch wide models look great for an array, but I haven't been able to find a word about sound quality.

So... anyone?

This flat speaker will need multiple coils to keep cone distortion down and stabilize movement.
I don't think it has even remotely to do with sq.
Also they compare it with a B(uy) O(ther) S(ound) E(quipment) 802 which is pretty easy to beat.
Then marketing claims which don`t hold true in the real world such as the usual spherical (only) and their uniform spread of sound.
And then even less specs than B(uy) O(ther) S(ound) E(quipment).
I don`t know...
