I can't quite see how much if any horn path length can be squeezed in there behind the woofers.  Is this more of a bandpass than tapped horn in the bottom?  Makes sense since it's not trying to be super wide bandwidth.
Tom can chime in if he's paying attention but short answer is yes it's a tapped horn, there's a decent amount of volume behind the high/mid section. It's very punchy.

The horn is really cleaver.  Tom did a good job with it.

It is basically (not counting braces etc) a single piece of wood for each driver.

The total path is greater than 9', for each driver.

It is absolutely  a tapped horn-the same as the other tapped horns.

Is there an adaptor kit available?   ;D
It would seem from Mike's response that there's a fair amount of involved cabinetry work behind the "SM80" part.  At most I would think only the horn flare and driver would be transferable.  All that wood back there probably accounts for a good amount of the weight.

Looks like a great small club or corporate install box.

The mid/high driver is enclosed into a small back volume-just like the SM80.

Those "Sm80 parts" are also outside walls of the horn.

It is all 18mm 13 ply baltic birch. The fly points also add a fair bit of weight.

And a good bit of bracing helps to "keep it from tearing itself apart". 

It could be built lighter-but then various aspects of the performance would suffer.

Woke up this morning with this announcement in my crack-book feed. It looks great! I'd just need to spend a few more days/week in the gym to move it by myself. I guess I could crush the front row anyway. Looks like it all fits nicely behind a full face grille too.

Nice work guys!  Any other secret projects on the go? I'm itching for some SM80's, unless you're working on a lighter SH46, lol. Kidding of course. I know if you could you would.

Yes, there is a full frontal curved grill.  It is just shown without the grill-because it looks sexier without it.

There are always projects being worked on.

We just can't talk about them now.

But hopefully by Infocomm in June we will have some more new ones.

Some really interesting ;)

Sucks doesn't it.  You see someone talking about something and you just know there's something in development that will make their day, but you can't spill the beans until it's publicly announced.

Better than some places though, where they gave employees flying lessons for letting cell phone prototypes leak.

My first comment when I saw these this morning was how awesome they would be sitting on a pair of BC218s. Can't wait to hear these and the other new gear at Infocomm this year.
