More captions for this photo....

I'll bet the tweeter will poop out before the woofer does!
Don't xover too low or that tweeter might flap uncontrollably.
Why is the bass sounding so warm and fuzzy, yet cold and wet?
A tweeter with an inherently extended tail, which is great for xover modeling.
Wait... Wait.... Wait..... OK! (flip, and munch!)
Natural down-damped tweeter cavities, the next big thing!
That woofer really growls down deep.
Why does the cabinet shake from side to side when it sounds really good?
Nice leather stand for that 2-way!
Obviously this tweeter is not mounted offset.

Anybody else got a caption?
Wolf

Nice self-powered set. I expect wooly midrange but with feather-like top end with great dispersion thanks to B&W-style tweeter enclosure. Woofer cabinet is well damped and it will help to tame diffraction issues. Wait... Why this dust cap is so wet?

Bet there's a 'tail' or two to tell when it comes to this design!

I have used that woofer and tweeter before but not in this combination. I found the tweeter to be too colored and very, very bright The woofer was not large enough for much bass, but its presentation was very focused. I am not sure what fiber the woofer is made of, but it tended to actually shed fibers in my listening room. It requires a high-quality amplifier, as it is very picky about what it is fed. If not fed a quality signal the woofer tends to make a rough barking sound.
