    I wonder how the bass horns sound in a hard rain.

      Funny enough, see a few of those sort of setups in Asia. Sure Jack or David has seen some of them.

      BTW, check out those amps in front of the speakers! Right out of Dr. Frankenstein's lab!

        Maybe David has but I sure haven't. This is the largest non-commercial horn rig I've seen in person albeit I think even in terms of total cabinet volume, The VR-111s at four 8ft towers and two more for the XOs might be bigger still. That system in the link is by far THE biggest I've seen, again not counting the few crazies I've seen who shoehorn PA stacks into their homes. Yes, there are a lot of those!

          Too much is sometimes just right and nothing succeeds like excess.

            I really like the comment "isn’t the wavelength of 20hz something like 57 feet long? Maybe he’s trying to achieve that without any time delay adjustments?"

            Well, that'd be one way...!

              BTW, haven't seen a Thor Audio preamp in ages!
