It's a good example of lateral thinking.
If you use the Search function of this board, with the word "Thigpen", you'll find it has been discusssed here several times before.

It seems that things are pretty quite at Eminent Technology. Everything on their web-page is old.

There was a lengthy thread on another audio forum site about the installation and testing of a pair of them in a dedicated home theatre basement. Sorry, I don't have the URL on this machine. You could start here:
Rotary Subwoofer Install Blog

Also, Google "thigpen rotary woofer".
