New look cabinet for new 8" driver.

Louis is working on a new style of speaker which I personally think is very cool.  Pictured here is what he plans to put the all new 98dB 8" driver into.

Liking the new design.  Reminds me of a slimmed down HB Type 1.  Not too sure on the round grill though...

Is that the same 8 inch driver used with the Type 1's?  BTW, I love the round grill.

I like the round grill as well ... I wonder what an Outlaw would look like with a round grill for both an RS7 and Speed 12 drivers in the same cabinet?

No. The picture is a mockup.  The real item should be built in a few weeks.

The round grill ties in with the oval base, and really unifies the look.

That it does.  But I don't run mine with grills anyway.  Keep up the good work.

Can you tell us anything about the new driver and if it will be offered in various cabinets?

So far I only know of the pictured cabinet thus far, but no doubt there will be more.

Oooh, this may be my next speaker! I'd love to know more about this driver and the tech specs of this speaker!

Its official, this is my next speaker! I'm excited to see how a no BS speaker compares to the Sonus Fabers I just dumped.

I personally like the square grill of the other models but Louis does have a good eye and it does tie in well with the stand base.

Oh, and from the picture maybe he should name it the "black hole"
