Levithan II:

Spec sheet from 2004, by the looks of the cabinet I would have though it to be from the 1980's.
One huge heavy beast, the six 15" remind me of a Godzilla Motorola piezo horn.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

The drawings on the spec sheet really don't do it justice.
That picture is worth a thousand words.

Needs a man standing next to it for size reference, to see the actual gargantuan these are...

Never got to hear one, but I suspect they were impressive.

I remember some Northwest cabinets that had a pair of Gauss 15" in a straight horn-with a 2" Gauss HF on top and for the "sizzle" they had 6 piezo tweeters in a "line array" down the middle of the LF horn.

That was the NW2. When Maryland Sound got them, they took the piezos off.   Great sounding box, but a bit large and they didn't array very well.

I'm so old, when I was doing FOH for Tommy Dorsey, to balance out the horn section I would slide their chairs downstage and upstage to mix!
