How do these monsters sound?

I'm quite skeptical, but that's mainly from reading billfitz writing silly things on forums where I can't comment. Some people just get religious about speakers, so it is with billfitz, suddenly people actually believe that he is the greatest speakerdesigner in the world and only he can figure it out!
Truth is there's many good designers and no one will ever figure it out:-)

Any competent comment would be appreciated!
+measurements, I saw one on a forum, looked pretty bad, -could be other factors like the room.

Funnily enough that pic was posted by TonyASS in another OT12 thread: http://forum.speakerplans.com/omnitop-12-build-pics_topic10979_post102967.html#102967
Where he states it's an old design by him...

The least expensive recommended driver is the Eminence Beta 12. A high
performance alternative is the Delta Pro 12. For lighter weight, albeit at a cost, use
a neo magnet driver, such as the Eminence Basslite 2012, Deltalite II 2512 and
Kappalite 3012HO.

Hi I build my omni tops with the Beta 12 driver. They might not have the output of the more expensive drivers but 2 a side will hit 127db with 200w rms per driver.

hope this helps

I'm considering buying the plans for the omnitops, but I'm wondering whether anyone knows of a cheaper driver that will work instead of the rather expensive deltalites?
