    Apparently they came out around the time the Be tweeter did according to Solen's update log.
    What a driver this would be! 12" REV!!!

    Looks pretty good for an expensive, high-end active 3-way.
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

      I'm still puzzled by the tweeter's FR. http://i.imgur.com/sdf1a.jpg

      Even more puzzling: http://www.madisound.com/loudspeaker...reliminary.pdf

        What a dream driver :D

        Looks like the new revelator Be tweeter and that subwoofer was playing in RMAF12. Anyone heard it?

        "During the RMAF 2012 the longstanding and highly respected manufacturer Scan-Speak will have their new Revelator products. This includes the largest subwoofer ever made by Scan-Speak with a stroke of 13" and a high performance beryllium tweeter. Scan-Speak's new 32W/4578T00 is the most powerful and largest subwoofer ever designed by Scan-speak. With a large 3" voice coil, extreme long linear excursion and low resonance frequency it is designed for producing the deepest frequencies. It features a brand new type of paper-sandwich cone with a special foam filling technology (patented) giving the cone very high stiffness and relative low weight. The motor system has heavy duty copper sleeves for the reduction of eddy currents and minimizing the self-induction.

        The new Revelator Beryllium tweeter D2908/714000 is a highly efficient and high-power 8 Ohm 1" design. It features a new 120mm faceplate design as well. The faceplate is without visible screws on the front side for a smooth and clean visual appearance combined with an acoustical very transparent wire-mesh protection grille."

          Woah! I thought it the was the older Be tweeter, so I thought I missed these woofers. Turns out that's a new Be tweeter too, and ICK! for the FR on it too...

            Wouldn't have to be active...
            I'd still use this in a passive 3-way.

              So, are these woofers available in the US yet? And if not, has anyone leaked when then they might show up?

                    I don't think the tweeter response looks all that bad. Of course by the time you flatten it out it will only be about 80db if the measurement level is correct.

                        Seems really expensive for a 14mm xmax sub. Now a 2-way tower with an SEOS 12 around 1 khz on the other hand...

                          Can you point out others with distortion that low? Maybe AE?

                            Madisound has the 32W subs on order, but no indication as to when they will show...something about possible VC former issues at the factory.
                            They expect it cost around 600USD...and that it will be awesome.
