I'm sure we are just right around the corner from such a subwoofer. Using Lasers, vibrating air, and a few military secrets, someone could make a million dollars a week Posted Image . On the other hand, a 180 pound SVS would sound better and save about $900,000.

Arthur? Are you "hitting the peace pipe" again?

I'm sure that there would be all kinds of room-induced standing waves and such showing up due to the fact that the woofer would not be stationary.

Therefore, the perceived size of the room (to the sub, that is) would constantly be in flux. Talk about changing the equation!!! Posted Image

ps
Sorry to hear your friend's basement flooded. The fact that his KLH sub drowned...well, that's not all that great of a loss. Posted Image
Yeah, I base all my HT purchases on the WAF, too. Wallet Acceptance Factor.

Arthur, If you had JUST purchased the 1220's last spring, we could have prevented all this... Posted Image

Acoustic levitation does most certainly work, and is quite fun to play with.

Levitating a loudspeaker with sound would indeed be a cool, and ironic trick. If only we had time to play with all the things we dream up...

Naw, the electric cord coming out of your butt would only allow to rule about a 10 foot diameter of the world.
