Yes!! Happy New FRFR Day!!
Ordered last week a Nova KD12 at Thomann. The KD12 is a 12" coaxial powered speaker that looks very similar to the Dynacord AXM12A, but costs about 30% less.
It has a DSP as well, like the AXM12A. Even the weight and size are almost the same.....
At this moment I'm not able to test it at nuclear warfare levels but my first impression was that it sounds nice. Very nice. Didn't realise that the difference between a conventional speaker setup (i.e. 12" woofer + 1" hf driver in a eccentric position) and a coaxial set up would be this huge!! A direct comparison with a DXR10 made very clear that the sound out of this KD12 is very much cab-like, i.y.k.w.i.m. The DXR sounds great too, but it's a very "focused" sound, not as "creamy" as the Nova. I know, very hard to explain
The Nova has two reflex ports, on the upper left and right, if you place the speaker as a wedge (see pic below). It's possible to place the Nova on the left side (there are rubber feet on that side as well) which changes the sound drastic (of course). Hell, you can place it on every side you want, as long as you like the sound of that position. Next week I can test it at earbleeding levels so there's gonna be a follow-up on this thread.
