    I'm so glad I've got an open mind.

    For any newbs reading this thread, yes listen to the gurus, but don't be afraid to question their facts - because they may not be facts.

                      You mean like claiming on the company website that Beryllium is a garbage material for tweeters because the speed of sound in the material is faster than what it is in the air? You mean that guru?

There's one from the 2013 MWAF that caught my attention due to the picture used in the youtube link. Many of you here likely attended that one, so I'd like your input on it. Go the link below at 3:33 and discuss the system with the multi-driver arrays shown.

                        I still have five Morel tweeters I bought 10+ years ago thinking to experiment with the same thing, one in the middle with four in an array surrounding one. I never built a test baffle, I decided it was too complicated and modeling showed real problems due to spacing, but these were 104mm faceplates. I also decided that it was also way to expensive for any possible benefit.

                        That was the first iteration of the 'Art of War', and the demo had some issues with only one or 2 channels playing. It's second incarnation flanked the setup with a pair 18" RSS woofers. The premise is a point source 5.1 setup. When 5x12" woofers are moving on the X.1 channel, it gets fun pretty fast. Bill Edwards did a good job building that. The mirror works like that of the CBT with a hard reflection, and creates a supposed 90 degree dispersion pattern from the crease of the baffle to mirror. Depending on the position of the listener, the mirror could be propped up in front to change the angle. The complexity had to be seen to be appreciated, all running from an 18AWG power cord.

Audiophiles tend to be subjective, willing to accept marketing claims at face value, and not particularly knowledgeable about how the gear they're willing to pay sometimes obscene money for actually works. One might even say gullible. Engineers are objective, and can tell the difference between facts and BS. That makes you the audiophile, and about as far from an engineer as one can be. Since this forum is technically oriented, it's even in the name, you're peddling subjective nonsense to an audience that's not going to buy into it. As for the 'review' links, they're totally subjective, lacking any factual content, and only prove that anyone can put anything on youtube. As real acoustical engineer Ethan Winer so eloquently put it.
                          ​Not all audiophiles are audiophools. Believe it or not, some audiophiles actually do have a technical and or engineering background. My late mentor friend Henry Wolcott, was a very thorough and capable engineer, who also enjoyed high fidelity audio, with a vast music collection and excellent equipment.

                                Spell check didn't indicate any misspelled words.
