That ~50" Fostex would make a nice supertweeter!

Yeah, that would be a lot of fun... but something that size, how do you keep people on the street from just walking up and poking holes in the speaker cones? Or more annoyingly, pushing in the dustcaps?

Poking holes in drivers? dustcaps being squashed in? How many people do you know who are tall enough to reach the top section that that behemoth. None I hope
