Well, the first prototype is designed, cut and built, and heading into the testing room! What do you think?

Woo Hoo!

Amie, could we get the measurements and driver complement (even though this may not be the final version)?

I'm sorry to say I'm not really sold on the appearance. Still, what can you do with an WT/MW with the same size drivers--which should obviously be the goal to match the M60s.

Question: What do you think?

Answer: One word, AWESOME! May it's off-axis performance and speech intelligibility be with you! Love it!

p.s. Is this prototype sealed or ported?

I wonder if there would eventually be an in/on wall version, or in-cabinet version, if it would not be too deep. The in-cabinet VP180 was too deep for my wall. There was heating duct work in the way. But, I might be interested in that. I suppose, that it might be possible that I could build an outer frame on the wall, using 2x2 or 2x4's though so it wouldn't go so deep. Angle it up just a little too, while I'm at it.

I'm sold. I want one.

Let me add;

Thanks for sharing, Amie! It's great that you're soliciting user-feedback in the design process!

I should say that too, as the jerk who critiqued on reply number 3. It's very cool that you're showing off prototypes to the community.

Great feedback so far - thank you! Critiques are definitely welcomed or we wouldn't have asked smile I'm waiting for the 'measurement' answer . . .

Mark,

It is 292mm x 600 mm x 335 mm (11.5” x 23.625” x 13.2”) HWD. The drivers are identical to the M60. It is only the tweeter face plate that has changed. We wanted to keep the height to a minimum but also keep the tweeter above the 5.25”.
