From the Horses Mouth.

Attached is drawing of new cabinet, the Z8.

 Bass driver is an 8” version of the 10” fitted in the LT10 and LT20.

 HF driver is an AMT.

We will be making the same size cabinet but with a dual-concentric soft-dome HF unit.

One or the other would be good for the Aegir ceiling and either side of the projector. You don’t have to decide now as the cabinets are the same size. I will make more tests when the first batch arrive, we only have one prototype at the moment, I suspect that the AMT version will be more suitable.

If you would like the connector panel in a different position, no problem. You could also have Neutrik connectors if you prefer.

This is the little speaker that could, maybe usable for all channels in a multichannel system including LCR.

The coax version has 90 degree dispersion perfect for ceilings and utilizes the high power tweeter from the studio monitor line.

List Price $3,510 without crossover and amps

expect the US List Price to be $3,510 each.   (It is an actively-driven product so will require processing and 2 amplifier channels).

  I am not going to lie, I am sad about this not having a crossover.  Looking forward to seeing what else is new.

What looks like a great alternative to the LT-20 the Z-16, The high power alternative to the LT-8 the Z8, ZEILING The low ceilings timbre matched hemispherical dispersion coaxial speaker using Quested Studio Monitor tweeter,the Zub (the sound defies it's size (looks like a sealed design-no ports?).

The AMT is smaller than the one in the LT10 and LT20, more suited to smaller rooms.

 From The Horses mouth:

"The Zeiling is designed for cinemas built in garages, the only room that UK wives will let their husbands convert."

 A Z2-4 is in the works as well.


Dimensions in Inches:

Z8                           PROJECTED PRICE AS PER ABOVE $3,510
  7"11/16" DEEP
12" 5/16" WIDE
16"15/16" TALL

ZUB                 DOWN TO 16HZ UN -EQ'D

WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO HAVE A HOME CINEMA OPTIMIZED FULL COMPLEMENT LIKE THIS AVAILABLE TO HELP OUR FORUM FRIENDS ACHIEVE ATMOS SOUND THAT CLOSELY INVADES THEIR PERSONAL SPACE WHILST PLAYING SUPERLOUD BUT SUPER FATIGUE FREE (GOOD LOUD) !

Call me anal retentive obsessed whatever, I am glad I did the due diligence.

"I have made some enquiries , The amplifier performance would be improved slightly buy using a higher input voltage (220/240v) due to the lower currents involved and better VA rating. I hope this helps answer the question for you "

My question had being is there any whoever miniscule advantage to power the quested amps in 240v60 even though the country of installation is the USA, I am asking for marginal nuanced differences. The answer was first NO, then yes!

looks like something that would suit my needs perfectly :)
What amps are you using with those speakers Peter?
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about 'ideal' room sizes for Z8s (in the context of fronts) - at what point does it make sense to spring for LT10s or Z16s?

PS: Do you have any data/measurements re SPLs etc the Z8/Z16 can achieve too Peter?
