Default Ohm drivers - can we use full range drivers instead?

Iíve always been fascinated by the Ohm Walsh speakers using a singe cone shaped driver to project a 360 degree waveform. I was wondering if we can create the same type of speaker using full range drivers?

I was wondering if placing a full range driver - upside down - on top of a cabinet would replicate the effect of the Ohm driver? I also wondered if simply firing the driver upwards (with or without a reflector) might accomplish something similar - or better?

It seems obvious to use drivers with a rising response. Has anyone tried this and gotten good results?

Default long thread in multi-way

Godzilla,
see here- http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi...r-remakes.html Someone later on in that thread was getting good results with a driver using felt or similar glued on to extend response and tame breakup.
