      Ultimately they used a round-over for the Fleetwood DeVille, but mounted in a baffle > not optimal.

      Did you try different horn profiles before settling on the multi-sided conical for the mid range? I've built and listened to a few of...

      The Classic-series were Blumenhofer's take on the big JBL studio monitors of the '70s and '80s. 33k is a considerable amount of money...

      You mean Marco? I spoke to him, a nice guy and analog/vinyl junkie. Blumenhofer made some impressive-looking systems in the past...

      No, it doesn't beam (noticeably), but there's some minor pattern-flip and the 'transition' between the waveformer and the radial horn. I...

      I've also listened to at least 3 systems with Voxativ drivers, including the PureAudioProject Trio15 Voxativ. One can think this up...

      The waveformer works amazingly well and those 22 cm woofers are almost seamlessly matched to the ND850 + radial horn. As long as you're...

      Last year's setup was a far cry from 2022; lacking coherence, obvious horn-related issues and lots of bass overhang.
