    "Our new revolutionary U.S. patent #9247339 {issued January 26th, 2016} allows us to literally align the mass of cones to the harmonic spectra of the musical instruments being played.

    This means that, in theory, we've now made every other high fidelity loudspeaker on earth obsolete in one fell swoop!"

    Might work nice. The combo isn't the problem between 15's and tweeters, the problem is that usually multiple tweeters don't work so nicely.

    How good? uh I dunno. Might be nice. But if I'm not mistaken they have a slightly colored past due to a health issue. The problem with selling so cheap is that the companies aren't very strong when the smallest thing happens that causes problems.

    NO problem ??
    Can you show me a good FR of a speaker with a fifteen inch woofer combined with a tweeter (other then a high freq horn compression driver ).
    Any actual response of that design would be nice to see , they might use a +- 38 mm tweeter , which can maybe play down to 800 Hz for a good crossing, but rolls off in the highs
    And it probably might still sound weak in the mid range /not enough body /membrane surface

    If i would buy speakers today i would may be try these studiomonitors , dsp controlled digital amps inside , just to hear it and play with it.
    Augspurger , the bigger versions are used a lot by rap /rb recordings to get the bass pumping and they play high spls .
    They use a large diam. berylium compression driver /horn
