    That'd go well with a Wishnevsky bass... :meh:
  4. That'd make a great sub in my car. But the car itself would be it's box.

    Some of you people spend a lot of time on ebay.
  6. Looks like it's gonna be an ingrown pool or something.

    I don't like it:meh:

    Maybe the speaker melted and cooled in that form:)
  7. maybe Yamaha designed it as a "neighbour-annoying" speaker- intended to be mounted flat on an adjoining wall, and drum'n bass fed into it, as revenge for them waking you up by using a power drill etc. :p
  8. I'm just dumbfounded as to what the actual purpose of that speaker really was:confused:

    hey nick, still using that funky avatar? very cool. I'd like to try that speaker. That'd be awesome to mount to a wall or floor for a sub. I wonder what the actual freqency response on that would be...
  11. I actually remember those goofy speakers.It was Yamaha's idea that their "new" line of speakers
    should be shaped like "ears" because that was the
    shape humans had attached to each side of their
    head(no I'm not making this up)so they'd respond
    more accurately.Right.Oddly enough,Fender had some
    amps,decades ago that used the very same speakers.
    The speakers sounded horrible,didn't last very long or take any kind of abuse from what I remember(the cone was made of foam)and they weren't very efficient.Anybody else remember this
    marketing "faux pas"?:meh:

    I was young when they came out with those things, but read about them later on. Fender called those bass amps the "Bantam" and they were open backed combos if I remember correctly. The speakers Fender used were trapeziodal in shape, I believe. Those foam speakers enjoyed about 5 minutes of fame and then faded away.
