I am familiar with Mr. Jeanson's work - he and I have had quite a few emails back-n-forth. He has sent me photos of his speakers, both in the process of building and the finished project. Very nice work! Probably the nicest looking 'Acoustats' I've ever seen!

I agree with you, MrAcoustat, the 1+1s are a wonderful speaker. My next project will be to "Spectra" mine -- to improve horizontal dispersion a little -- and add either a single plane bass array or a double bass array; then I am done! I promise!

AcoustatAnswerman,
Were any wider panels other than 8" or 9" ever explored?

I am contemplating a 11.5" diagphram width by 47" long panel possibly segmented in 3 or 5 sections. jer

Then it's goodbye to the double stacked models for the ( normal ) 8 footh ceiling and for me i would'nt want to lose those panels up there no sir, i love all full range Acoustat's but all double stacks are my favorites.

I wouldn't think that 47 inch height panel gets you much advantage than the 45 inch panel that Acoustat has. I'd try something that can stack with a frame and still be 2 or 3 inches off the 8 foot ceiling.
