    Not to go all Cliff Clavin on you :p ...

    but...

    I believe that the drivers are foam -- unless I am confused (which is always possible) they're essentially an early implementation of the 'tactile transducers' or 'exicters'*; in this case, exciting a foam board.

    I believe (!?!) the Bertagni transducers are a lot like the "polyplanar" drivers sold by LRE (e.g.,) in the early 1970s.

    It was a thing in the early 1970s. It didn't quite catch on -- well, except that in recent years, it has sort of come back (with those aforementioned 'exciters'). :p
    There is nothing new under the sun.

    There were also, in the mid/late 1960s, a flurry :p of normal cone-type speaker drivers manufactured with styrofoam cones. EV was, fairly briefly, infatuated with foam cones. :) I haven't had enough ears-on experience with them to have a strong opinion, but it's safe to say that these didn't catch on either :|

    This was one approach to strong, stiff, light materials to make 'truly' pistonic driver (mostly woofer) cones -- in the days before easy availability of today's fashionable paper alternatives for speaker cones (Kevlar, carbon fiber, various flavors of plastics, etc.).

    I don't know if the foam cones have as horrific out-of-band frequency response anomalies (breakup modes) as today's wonder materials ;)

    Interesting history on foam Doc! Is there anything you don't know about speakers? :)

    Hmmm, IMO foam seems to be, at least in my biz, not the right material if you're trying to control bending stiffness. Yeah you can re-formulate it, add fibers, etc, to stiffen it up, but seems to me there were better materials to start with.

    I reckon that's true, and I further reckon why we don't see many foam coned drivers any more... and I even still further reckon why the Bertagni/Fisher speakers I've heard were... well... not so great.

    :|

    EDIT: Oh, did anyone mention that Fisher sold some speakers using the Bertagni panels for a while? :P

    I think that's more like foamed polyurethane than Styrofoam (foamed polystyrene) though. :)

    IIRC, these only accept NON-polar two-prong plugs :s

    Back-in-the-day, I suppose these were helpful when audiophiles passed-out fell asleep on the couch during critical listening sessions. :D

    Btw: I am accepting offers on these beauties :) Karma, anyone???

    New Definitive Technology BP9080 - $300 single speaker ($1749 retail)
    https://toledo.craigslist.org/ele/d/toledo-definitive-technology-bp9080/6983709152.html

    No affiliation but the guy said that he purchased a set from Best Buy and had a problem with one of them and though it was DOA. He complained to Definitive and a new one was sent...now he has three of them. As it turns out, he had something connected wrong and the speaker is fine. So he is selling the new in-box one for $300!
