I told before that I have high respect to Brian Cheney (because of multiple reasons) but I do not agree with his loudspeakers, where he tries to use ribbons wider range then they should be... Brian recently announced his new model VMPS RM V60. Since I expressed my interest to ribbons for the Macondo’s HF:
I kind of trying to familiarize myself with whatever is doing on in the ribbon fronts. So, I do honestly read whatever Brian said about the “wing” idea of the VMPS RM V60 and I… still do not get it. Relay. I really do not understand the idea behind the speaker.
Was Brian trying to increase the back chamber of the MF ribbons upto very large dimension and then even to load the back chamber into is some kind of horn-like resonator in order to get some "lower midrange sonic boom"? It looks like that it is possible to look THROUGH the MF drivers …. Does it mean that the ribbons are damped only but the air “confined” within that open baffle “flying wing”? Perhaps I am missing something… Could some one explain it to me because I look at the speaker and I’m really do not get it.
