This is Danley’s new ILE loudspeaker it isn’t on the Danley site yet and this is just the pre production unit,


I have also seen the photograph ( which I have been asked not to share at the moment) of a new bookcase design which looks super.

Would it be possible for you to share the price point of the new design? Am on a $4,000 budget and wondering if it's possible to buy into Danley in that budget.

Ilkless if I knew I would share them here, as soon as I know you will, I have suggested ‘pro’ prices rather than some ridiculous ‘high -end’ pricing.

Today Iain showed me a photograph of Tom Danley standing next to the new ILE speakers ( pictured above) they are taller than he is and he is not short ,they are massive!

I wonder how many compression drivers that thing contains? Any idea if it’s a 2-way?

There are three in the Hyperions HF/Mid/upper bass and then the twin 15” bass drivers, similar in the ILEs I believe, Iain ( and two colleagues ) just dropped back the hyperions apparently they handled the 200 plus theatre at the British Library with aplomb.

Quad 15” by the looks of it. Those are then probably coaxial compression drivers with a series of layered combiners (aka paralines), otherwise they will not go this low. They’ll probably need to go down to 300 Hz or so.

To give you an idea of the scale of the new ILE,

So it is a 3-way. I wonder how the 5” woofers are fed into the layered combiner?

Ah, it’s coaxials again. That makes it even more interesting! An X-ray view like for the Hyperion would be cool :cool:

It's not a layered combiner, it's a Paraline.

Both of the "Signature" speakers are based on existing DSL speakers.

Here's a video I recorded of the DSL SBH speakers, which use a series of Paralines loaded by a prosound coax. The ILE speakers use a series of Paralines loaded by a prosound coax.

Apologies for the crummy quality, YouTube bitrate is 128kbps:

Aren't those the same?

Any idea how these things look with the coaxial mounted on them?

If it's using the existing Paraline design, it looks like what's in the patent:

Yeah, I know about that one, but that patent does not seem to cover coaxial drivers though.

Looks quite interesting! Especially the Studio 1/2 which could be accepted in a living room… Any show reports?
