Looks like they are using the paper woofer found in alexia.

Though similar in heritage, that's a new woofer designed specifically for Sasha DAW Marc.

Raked back woofer cabinet. Also looks like larger cabinet volumes for tweeter, midrange and woofers.

Nice Bill... thanks.

And notably less rake of the mid-range. But, all is adjustable for local dimensions. I'm going to look at my Yvette speaker baffle angles. Easy to rake the woofer back a small amount.

Have fun and enjoy the music...

Bob, better to maintain verticality and possibly raise/lower the overall height of the entire speaker.

You are aware that the woofer baffle is not vertical on Yvette right?

Hey Dave,

Well I wasn't aware of the woofer angle until I looked. Upon review, the rakes on all the Yvette's drivers look more like the new DAW Sasha than my old Sasha 1s. Pretty cool look actually

Shall we now refer to the new improved driver angles on Wilson speakers as the Darrell Rake? Meant lovingly; but in the interest of your employment, please don't answer.

As you have previously made clear, your good advise is to not angel the cabinet as it will screw up the engineering. Got it, thanks.

Best...
Bob
