"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!"
Oh man you got me there , id better stop making loudspeakers now .;)
Whats that by the way , 2 15 inch woofers playing with a tiny mid /tweeter coaxial driver ??
Quite unusual yes , but i suppose it covers the mid band

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

I have never heard any speakers from this company. I will give them a listen if they are Axpona. Maybe they can be the Schiit of the speaker world? Who knows.

You might be surprised Henk... there's a number of things out there.

Also Henk, I don't think anyone consider your speaker would be considering those speakers, so don't worry buddy!
I have my doubts about the unusual configuration but the proof would be in the listening ... else all conjecture and prejudices ...

limiting the percentage weight of individual parts of each driver to the other parts in the individu

As I read the patent, it seems that it is based upon limiting the percentage weight of individual parts of each driver to the other parts in the individual driver.
??? Is that correct ??? or am I missing something vital???

Terry London, reviewer for hometheaterreview.com came on audiogon forum saying "these Double Impact speakers are Shocking in regards to its Overall Performance!" "He said these speakers are reference level speakers that competes with anything on the market today!" "One of the Greatest Bargains in High-End Audio!" His review will be out in about two weeks! ;)
