I listened to Lorpen's larger models back in the day and they sounded great. They had cement baffles as I recall. I haven't seen a pair since and I'm not sure if Lorpen ever made it into full retail mode but they did seem to be a well implemented design - if perhaps not as commercial as it could have been due to their weight. Nice to see a pair again. 😎 GLWTS

The open baffle speaker concept is something every audiophile should experience at some stage. I haven't heard these particular speakers but if they are anything like my own Spatial Holograms, a potential buyer should have a listen (if possible).

 

Good luck with your sale.

Practice Googling, you must!

 

http://www.melbourneaudioclub.org.au/gm1998.htm (search page for “Lorpen” - apparently Garth Pennington was the chap behind Lorpen)

 

http://db.audioasylum.com/mhtml/m.html?forum=speakers&n=5270&highlight=open+baffle+speakers&r=&search_url=/cgi/search.mpl (includes old web address)

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20011202032109/http://www.chariot.net.au/~pennington/index.htm (using the old web address, there’s a capture in the Internet Archive - hurrah!)

 

So, which model do you reckon these are?

Is it possible to see through (maybe with a torch) or remove the grill to determine the state of the aerogel drivers? The flash photo at the top makes it look like it may be possible - at least to an extent.

hi thanks for your query, look i know you can undo the fabric from the back then roll it down to expose the drivers, however i am not willing to do it as i think it is risky? currently everything is in position sitting right i don't want to change that, if you buy thenm then you can do it. well are the drivers ok? all i can say is listening to them everything sounds find no crackling no flapping they drive fairly loud too and are quite punchy..imo the surrounds are fine. now just letting you know i want to buy a car today but I'm a bit short on money and can't buy it. come today ill sell $1.000 thanks simon
