They're not available in Europe through official distribution AFAIK. US Speaker and Parts Express in the US advertise them at $450 ea. With shipping and taxes that works out at the equivalent of $1170/pr imported into the UK compared with $540/pr for the 4012H when they were last available. US buyers don't have to pay our 20% sales tax (VAT), of course.

The current premium option supported by the crossover is the Acoustic Elegance TD12S which is almost $1000/pr with shipping and taxes. The hope is to find something better than the entry-level Delta 12 for around the price of the 4012HO give or take $100 or so.

The backsides of those Dayton Esoteric woofers are too pretty to hide in a box.

Oh, yeah, Fred! Those are good lookin'!

Isn't it funny: Our wives would show off their closets full of shoes. But we show off our baffles full of loudspeaker drivers. Laughing

The apartment is modern and gorgeous, but the acoustics are horrendous. It's an open concept living room and kitchen with exposed brick on all sides, a concrete floor, and metal plumbing hanging from the ceiling. It used to be an industrial plant I believe. I have already added many thick rugs across the space and it hasn't helped much at all. I got the television off the wall and placed it on a cabinet instead, but things are still a mess. How can I make the acoustics better? Would removing the home theater speakers make a difference? We're renting the apartment on a short-term lease of six months, so I can't making any wild changes. I can't imagine dealing with this for the next five or so months though. The walls are thick and it's nice to not hear my neighbors at all, but everything vibrates and I have to shout in order for Alexa to hear me.

You need sound damping material and directional speakers.

Do you know if it's possible to replicate that picture frame look? The last Samsung I bought stung me pretty badly. I know this model isn't a smart television, but I just don't want to give them anymore of my money.
Evervue's Spectrum and Decovue-Renaissance has probably come the closest, but at the moment both of these are more expensive than the Samsung model. I haven't figured out a way to DIY it without there being a noticeable gap between the television, frame, and wall. The Samsung Frame is a smart television, so are the Evervue models I mentioned. If a TV can showcase art without you inserting a USB drive or something else that contains that art, it's using the internet to get it.

Having a natural talent is definitely a big plus, but it it not entirely necessary. I think DJ skills can be learned by anyone who is passionate about it.

Definitely, bobbing up and down to the music, is a requirement. And tattoo's, lots of tattoo's is a plus.
