    These were not DLK clones but another line from DLK,I believe Doucanoe has heard and seen these . The lower cabs in the domus are the same cabs in my Janszens I think they look very similar.

    They looked like an experiment.

    They were a very expensive experiment. Retailed for $1500 in 1980 from what I understand. Pretty similar from the Domus owned by a friend of mine but they have a upward firing woofer at the top of the bass unit in a T-line or aperoidic slot vented at the bottom of the unit. A upward firing mid and I think the tweeter is firing downward.

    The ones my friend owns have a downward firing woofer and upward firing mids (2) and tweeter.

    Pretty cool.

    Why on earth would anyone have pics?

    I did copy these from the original ad, for reference of course.

    Dude, you've seen my garage recently! And my wife would have strangled me whether I had the space or not.

    Nope. :no:

    Did you?

    At least your garage is organized. The right side of mine looks like a bomb when off in it.

    I didn't even know what a Domus was till today.

    They are a pretty cool looking speaker IMO.

    Certainly look unique, but how do they sound? Looks like it was a failed attempt to penetrate the marketplace at the time.

    I just received an anonymous email that contained this photo.

    Looks like this numbskull got the Domus Mirage speakers.
