Asymmetrical vertical coverage sends more sound toward far area of room to make front-toback sound levels more consistent.
Components: Sixteen 25 mm (1 in) soft dome tweeters and four 125 mm (5 in) high-power LF drivers, arranged coaxially.
Patent-pending Constant Beamwidth TechnologyTM provides constant directivity up to the highest frequencies and reduces out-of-coverage lobing.
Vertical pattern coverage switchable between 45° for medium-throw coverage and 25° for long-throw applications.
Switchable voicing provides flat response in music mode or mid-range presence peak in speech mode.
The CBT 70J-1-WH, with Constant Beamwidth TechnologyTM, represents a breakthrough in pattern control consistency, utilizing complex analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to accomplish superior, consistent vertical coverage without the narrow vertical beaming and out-of-coverage lobing that are typical of straight form-factor column speakers.

About as dumb an idea as you could come up with. A 1000.00 solution for a 200.00 problem. 16 one inch tweeters will NEVER achieve the directivity or projection of a simple horn. The J shape does partially solve the near field problem, but don't expect projection beyond about 25 to 30 feet. The various EQ and supposed directivity settings are pretty much nonsense. Suitable only for small rooms where the extremely high cost makes them impractical. A well designed horn that has vertically asymmetrical directed coverage will easily outperform this overly complicated piece of foolishness. Someone said that sound dissipates at a constant rate no matter if a horn or small tweeters. While theoretically true, in reality, horns will, of course, project much farther because the shape of the horn "lines up" the sound waves. If you only need to cover a small room, you can certainly do it for less than this thing. If you need to cover a large space, this thing...
