It's indeed Kjærholm's PK22 Wicker Chair.


OT, another TAD clone.
This time a pair of Radian 651PB-8 drivers are mounted to the TAD TH-4001 clones and woofers are Beyma 15B100R-GH in 170 bass reflex cabinets.

Here's a 4K video.

Still waiting on my AE woofers btw. Hes gotten a **** ton of orders right before the price hike. I just so happened to order on the day before the change, though I didn't notice a change on the website until sometime after.....regardless...I wait. I want to email and see where hes at in production and then again I don't want to agitate the man who has 1400 dollars of my money in his hands =D, he might spit in my food before he serves it or something. Its been over a month now....not complaining.

It's not surprising AE got extra orders and since it's a small company, delivery time will increase.


I found a thread again that might interest you. It's french > use translate.

The guy's got an impressive (near-field) OB system in his basement as well.

So the Faital Pro 15PR400 driver seems like one of the drivers of choice for a good 2-way solution?

I built a large MTM styled cabinet which is housing 2x beyma 15g40 and a beyma 12cxa400nd on each side. All sealed (due not not understanding how to calculate best porting solution for the bass drivers). With eq, the performance subjectively seemed 'OK', but the coaxial driver doesn't give that really 'open' sound that I was hoping for. Tested xo between woofers and co-axial between 120hz-300hz (all active using najda dsp).

Anyway, have recently discovered I can get access to the faital 15pr400 drivers at a relatively good price within Australia, so am considering replacing the beyma 15g40 for better bass/mid-bass performance. Also at same figuring out best porting solution for the bass as well.

Then replacing the beyma 12cxa400nd with a faital hf driver (not sure which model best) in a large-ish horn. I'm trying to read up 'best' choice between 1", 1.4" and 2" and what matching horn...

My apologies if I'm not being technical enough!

I suggest to wait until Faital's HF1440 comes available (any moment now).

The 15G40 is a nice woofer, but the 15PR400 is a better midwoofer.

1" can hold above 10kHz. The others may stumble over the line.

What's special about the HF1440? It's frequency plot doesn't look that balanced compared to something like the HF10AK ?

Agree for crossing below 300hz, no point changing... but what sonic benefits would I experience if I was able to cross higher.. say 1-1.5khz? Much larger surface area doing midbass.. should get a 'bigger' sound? I tried running the beyma 15g40 higher (ie. 800-1000hz), but the midbass definition/clarity was compromised (to my ears). Moving to the 15PR400 would allow for this...
