    Is there any math/science behind that curve or is it just aesthetically pleasing?

    Glass-ish sides are weird, but other than that, it just looks like back-loaded horn.

    Classic but worthy read.

    Btw, when implemented well, such loudspeaker cabinets generally sound pretty good.

    Think I'll try that in my basement...

    Oy - that's impressive and scary all at the same time!

    Ok, definitely fits the thread title in the "not much like real life" sense.

    Isn't this George Massenburg's place?

    I think I was there once when they were still building. It kind of looks like a torture room in person with all those wood slats coming at you.

    @spwath, Don't do this, ok? Especially not in your parents' living room.

    I often see these types of labyrinth TL (horn?) speaker designs online, but I've never heard one in the wild. I recall a 4'' or so fostex driver that included the basic plans for a loaded horn box and had impressive FR with shocking (to me) rolloff around 35-40 Hz. Seemed almost impossible.

    Has anyone heard a design like this?


    Edit: found the design, I was way off. Bottom right, second page is box FR. Still impressive for a driver of this size.

    One of local brands known as Cube Audio does their own widebanders inside of TL. Pricey speakers, but for someone into DIY they also sell their standalone drivers. During event in Munich their boxes went surprisingly low.

    OK that's pretty crazy and as equally impressive at the same time.
