Has anyone heard (or even heard of) these €18K Dutch speakers?

I'm intrigued by their technology, but am baffled at the claimed spec regarding bass delivery.

They come as "hybrid" with built-in bass amps, or as fully active - both with some form of room correction.

Any first-hand knowledge appreciated. Thanks

Devil is in the detail. Frequency response (which I don't believe) with no +- dB rating.

The speakers themselves look fairly standard. 14Hz from 2 x 7" drivers with some form of shaping and port loading, means the port is tuned to a frequency and that will be the bass response limit (i.e. not 14Hz). Anything below about 30Hz with these will be at the expense of power handling.

They look nice though.

Yes, there are some claimed details that seem too good to be true, in particulal that mention of 14 Hz. I heard of them via another forum where the US distributor suggests 20 Hz may be more realistic, but even that from twin 7" drivers seems optimistic unless the 20 Hz is at -20 dB!

I'm hoping someone here may have actually heard then at the Munich, or another show perhaps. Peter
