What Do You Think . . . and How Does It Work?

While watching vids on YouTube, I came across this pipe speaker design from a Dr. Linkwitz (see below).   The sound of this speaker is said to be impressive.  I was wondering if you know about this, how it works and what you think of this speaker design.  Also, what do you think would be the best room placement for such a speaker, and would you be tempted to build them?

Built Linkwitz Orions in 2006. Still my main speakers. Built the PVC Plutos in 2008. Stunningly good, odd looking, speakers. Small footprint. Lightweight and easy to move. Work best somewhat near field. The Pluto sound more like real music than magico IMHO. 
@darkstar, More realistic that Magico?  But I thought those were supposed to be near-best?
Be fair kenjit, ATC started introducing curved slightly tapered side panels to their domestic cabinets a few years back. You can be sure they did it for good sonic reasons.

It looks like ALL their professional speakers are boxes. We all know boxes are bad. 


Having curves doesn't stop it being a box. Its still a box. You gain nothing from having slightly tapered side panels. Its just cosmetic. Hence they do it on their hifi speakers because appearance is important to audiophiles. 
Would you please share with us again the perfect design?  32’ wide concrete side panels, correct?  Speakers mounted flush with ghe side of the house cut out and an anechoic chamber for as a listening room, correct?  Or was Bose and Sonos. And cheap ear buds? 😂

LoL, you on the other hand are prime for stand up!  You’ll be happy to know you aren’t my least favorite here though anymore!

I thought this was an interesting video about the speakers in question!  Check it out 👍

Bob540, the Linkwitz speakers disappear and present music in a natural, organic way. Since they are lightweight, you can keep them against a wall then move them closer to your listening seat when you want the best sound. 
Seigfried Linkwitz was brilliant as a speaker designer. Checkout Linkwitz Labs website for an education. (Kenjit)

They may not have brand appeal, (magico), but they sound better IMHO.
