    Good question! Plenty of mystery about those drivers.
    I don't know if you're aware, but there's an enthusiast with a blog and Facebook called "Project Ryu", and builds field coil drivers of all tipes, from 30 inch woofers to compression drivers.

    30 inch wood cone woofer:

    8 inch midrange, plus impedance and frequency response graphs

    I have no experience with the TA7331 but I've listened to the plastic version of the Azzolina KS12024 horn.

    Gorgeous!
    And your blog is awesome too, your listening impressions of the horn are nice. Very clear and informative.

    I doubt that I'll ever have that option. I usually don't like large, overtly horny (should I say priapic?) speaker setups. but these doo look quite cool. I can give them porn points, unheard, and hope that the sound wouldn't disappoint.

    I don't mind that one so much. It looks like it could be an art piece. I consider something like the Nautilus speakers a little too much.
