The old Deltamax monitors were this type of shape, big and ugly, performers had to stand on their toes to see over them, lol (These are not them).

I believe it was Pas Audio that had something like this. A coaxial design. But that was many, many years ago.

It's not the PAS I don't think. The PAS monitors had two floor angles, and two parallel sides for use on stacks or tripods. Being Coax you could rotate the cabinet any way you wanted and it didn't matter.

These things have compound angled sides.



I actually liked the PAS wedges a lot, and had a ton of bands tell me they were the best they'd ever used (in clubs in the 90's). The PAS mains were a different story.

Grapevine information, but I heard this is part of the venues "new" system. Not sure if that means the speakers are actually new.
The trapezoidal cabinets are fairly unusual for a monitor, unless these are meant to be mains with an angle for dual purpose.
I also wonder if they could be home-made ?????

I think McCauley Sound built 12" & 15" co-axial monitors in that shape.  Check out the small image in the lower right corner of this page.  It's McCauley's S12 stage monitor.

Nice try...
The McCauley info talks about multiple angles, and NL-4 on both sides.
Definitely not what is in the picture. I remember seeing something like this once, but those brain cells are a little "muffled" at the moment.  ::)
A band from Europe maybe?

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

McCauley SM92. 12" coax. We have a pair. Also sold/installed a bunch in some churches back in the day. Decent sounding for the size. A lot heavier than they look.

They had a few different revisions over the years with handles in different spots, port locations, etc. The original ones are in the pdf linked here.

Good call, but by the size, looks like it would be the McCauley SM95-1 15" coax.

The SM92-1 wouldn't come up to the knees, the 15" would ;^)
