Those 4x 15" bass must sound awesome.
Hmmmm........ I don't see that one at the GR web-site any longer. To bad because it looks to be a worthy piece of gear. Of course if I really wanted to build something like that I'd just knock together my own version anyway. That way I could spend the next couple of years and twice as much $$$ to get it running right!

My impression is "Orion on steroid" ... no questions on "dynamics" there ...

It's still available, it hasn't made it to the website yet. I built a pair (V1) and it is an oustanding speaker, I love it! Here's a pic of mine:

What about the top end? CD fires forward, dome tweeter backwards. Don't know if that matters at all.

Dynamics? Yes. But guessing that Orions would sound more refined.

How does a coax with a CD work anyway? Does the woofer cone provide horn loading?

They are 12" servo drivers made for Danny. Still sound killer. Maybe the best bass in the whole RMAF in 2009.

One of the better aesthetics I've seen for an offset driver combo (from Human Audio):

My WAF friendly OBs solid Camphour Laurel 65mm thick, Pioneer B20 with camphour laurel phase plugs and Dayton tweeter, 2x15in subs in the corner give them some help in the lower frequencies.

Upstairs system
sides are 70mm thick Victorian Ash with MDF baffle, soon to be covered in black fabric, 2x15in GRS woofers per side do suprisingly well considering their price very tight clear bass, Tang Band W4 1337 handles the important parts of the frequency band and a Dayton tweeter handles 8500Hz and up.
These will be offered for sale once I've sorted the crossover.
