I wonder what their amps look like.

 I've seen a video on Youtube of a bigger speaker (I think) in a lab. I'll post it here if I find it.

Well six foot is 72 inches so that would be smaller, 7 is 84" so bigger, yes but
the little driver the two gentlemen are moving down the stairs is clearly more than 2 meters, a bit larger.

Richard and David at the magnet end of their 60" woofer



article about that MTX woofer of Richard and David http://www.hammersnail.com/#!60inch-subwoofer-/ciw4/6D81E12C-DF19-49F7-8011-7E675B200725

the one in the opening post is actually an 80 inch so it seems bigger .... also look at this photo of the speaker in the opening post - look at the people to the right hand side of it - it seems larger than the diatone that Ingvar posted as well



seems to me that Alex audio indeed takes the title ???  :nfi:

I'm more concerned about only two people moving a speaker that should weigh quite a lot. That Alex audio speaker weighs 350Kg! :o

The Diatone in the first picture is the D160. It also had a smaller brother, the D80. I always assumed that the name, D160, meant it is 160cm in diameter, which would make it a 63" woofer.

Not sure what the woofer in the second picture is, but that is truly a monster. :faint:

PS. Looking again at that second picture, I am starting to think it is a hoax, or a movie prop. I don't think two guys would be able to handle a driver with a magnet that size. A magnet that big could weigh a few hundred kilos. I could be wrong, so could one of the engineers on the forum maybe calculate the approximate weight of a magnet-system that size?
