    This is the threshold for summing localisation, in fact all stereophony uses this effect, so the large speaker will sound like one driver from one location

    what we are i believe talking about here is a dirac impulse of one speaker which is very large summing within the 2 micro sec

    Given sound travels 0.000686 metres at 20C in 2 microsecond

    The question is how far must you move your head for this effect to dissipate

    Given a 2 metre tall speaker at 3 metres, the threshold is 50 microsecond for speech and 100 microsecond for Music

    So 50/2 x 3/2x 0.000686 metres = 30 centimetres or 1 foot, and up to 2 feet or 60cm for pure Music...

    Not exactly a vise!

    If the true cone driver centres greatest distance apart is more like 1.5 meters:
    would be 40cm and 80cm respectively

    Those two videos were amazing. To hear these in person is a dream only achieved by a few. I am certain a few have been granted access!

    Still my best and most impressive audio demo ever. WAMMs and D'Agostino amps. I don't think any YouTube video can do that system justice, as it was just so viscerally impactful that it's just physically impossible. You just had to be there.

    I had to chuckle at myself as I listened to a Plus Million Dollar set-up from youtube via my MacBook Pro's speakers. Would like to hear them in person.

    Still can't help thinking of "Return of the WAMM" to the 1990s R&B song.

    I can only imagine that experience Alex. I heard first hand about the WAMM from Bill Peugh. It was basically no matter what Wilson one owns larger to smaller, once you hear the WAMM there is no comparison.

    I'd go further. To me, nothing compares, period. Whatever Dave (and Daryl) did on that one, I sure hope they can do similarly, at lower price points

    Or maybe, since I know Bill is reading, they might find useful to show them here in Southern California... In which case, our showroom is always ready and available to receive them! :P



    cheers,
    alex
