Yes his transmission lines were unnecessarily complex (have been a fan and built a pair 40 years ago), but still not THAT expensive. 1st order crossovers do require wide-band (expensive) drivers. Agree that DSP, if done right, can make good speaker design way less expensive. But it seems that he's focusing on bass spls while ignoring controlled directivity and distributed bass, two of the current trends in modern speaker design.
Thanks for the post DoubleJ,Pat used to be a local SoCal guy. Never met him, but always liked his speakers. Good to see he is open minded. There are many ways to get high end sound. DSP and class D amps are one of those. I have been experimenting with both for a few years. They can do amazing things. They also have limitations and like all things in audio are a work in progress. The tech does seem to be steadily improving.My current system uses DSP, mechanical alignment, passive cross over filters and servo controlled bass. Lots of ways to get us to a rig we love. Good to see Pat working towards perfection. Wish him well and bet his stuff sounds great for the money as always.
