I remember there being a report from someone who went to a Snell warehouse somewhere and saw some drivers (either tweeters or woofers) with Outlaw labels on the back them - probably the same post you are thinking of.

I recently built a pair of surround speakers for my system, they are behind the listening position and are unique in that they are aimed UPWARDS at a 10% angle with the ceiling. Thus they reflect off the ceiling. This design is a clone of similar speakers by GR research. (OK I like building speakers so I would be a hard sell).

Nice to see Outlaw now has their own surround speakers! I assume that the direct/diffuse switch actually changes between mono-pole and di-pole operation. These may be just the ticket for my side surround position speakers if I ever go 7.1. Right now only 5.1 since the room layout makes true 7.1 a problem, the listening position is right up against the rear wall, so the surround speakers are to the rear displaced left and right. OH BTW, These look like a smaller version of a surround speaker made by Niles Audio (I work for Niles) http://www.nilesaudio.com/product.php?prodID=Pro770FX&recordID=Professional%20Cabinet,%20Home%20Theater%20Loudspeakers&categoryID=StageFront&catcdID=13&prdcdID=FG01337


I wonder if the new pre-processor (995) will have some form of time alignment to allow for 'weird' speaker layouts.

The 990 and 970 both have separate speaker delay settings for each individual speaker, so they already can support layouts in which there are some asymmetrical placement issues. The 997's Trinnov correction will include some unusual remapping abilities that are said to be able to even further correct for speaker placements that deviate from recommended practice - the whole point of Trinnov's remapping is to compensate for weird layouts.

I've got an order in for a pair of these and should have them late this week. I'll be sure to report my findings here.
