These are not old and not really omni but interesting none the less.

Electricbeach Blackwood floorstanders with front firing full range driver and what looks like an upward firing ribbon tweeter for added "air". Rear ported though :naughty: I wouldn't buy them but the concept is of interest especially as they have the drivers the wrong way round :lol:

Hows about these then. Klipsch atmos ready whatsits. Up firing drivers on the top to give your movies that added atmosphere. What would they do with just two channel music ? Who knows (or cares).

The seller says about the sonab speakers that the damped holes in the base are a cheap version of ported to keep the costs down. I don't think that is correct. Sounds like aperiodic to me and probably intentional. A length of tube hardly costs very much now does it ?
