No he didn't. It was his lab in Colorado Springs while experimenting on wireless power transmission.

Any part numbers etc would be fantastic.. The tweeters will sit either side of the chimminy in my lounge. I plan to put 2 holes in the wall and run 2 lengths of ducting up the chimmily with 2 small pc case fans to provide some suction, the outlet of these holes will be about 8" from the discharge and i'm hoping this will be enough to remove some of the ozone. I remember hearing that ozone harshley attacks rubber! Imagin this means the rubber on my bass/mid drivers aswell as my credit cards and my gimp suit!

My father-in-law in Germany has had one of these for many years. It's similar to the 'Ionovac'.

For what it's worth, I think it sounds very sweet indeed. My father-in-law told me that the Ozone problem has been solved with this design but I'm no expert so can't really comment.

Worth a try.

The Hill 'Plasmotronic' comes to mind as the only commercially made plasma unit. He ended up using helium gas to avoid the ozone problem. Any time you are ionizing gases be very afraid!
If it sounds good... it is good!

Just to point out, the plasma cutter in my workshop seems to be the same thing. you get an monster arc discharge then you blow compressed air through it and burn of the o2, this makes a flame up to about an inch thick and 3 inch long. i'd think this would make a huge amount of ozone but looking through the handbook only tells you to 'use in a ventilated area'! Intrestingly if it's runing and the big compressor or something starts up the power surge makes the flame change breifly and you get sound! (not music, but a noise none the less). Now if i made a pair could i just run them from the pre out on my amp and just remove the jumper bars to kill my speakers tweeter? does the design on the web allow you to ajust gain and xover?
