Isn't it about time Australia had a home theatre forum?

I think it's about time!

Of course, we've had StereoNET for almost a decade, but it's focus is primarily two channel.

Now finally we have a home theatre oriented forum - AV life. I think it will be a good thing for Australian audio enthusiasts.

Ring Radiator waveguide tower

Shown during testing on an elevated turntable. This is a rear ported design, in which I compare both a Scan Speak and Vifa ring radiator.

The problem with this combination is that these drivers don't want to hold hands. The waveguide is used to lower distortion of the ring radiator and match dispersion whilst also allowing a reasonably simple crossover. Used incorrectly, these drivers very easily sound bright.

Cinem8 - a custom active waveguide speaker

Cinem8 is a custom designed active speaker. It is designed as a compact horn speaker that carefully treads the line between large horn speakers and compact conventional designs. It features a compression driver for extreme output and 8" midwoofers which achieve enough extension even in a sealed box to mate with a subwoofer.

Cine8 coming soon
