After graduating college I took a part-time job at an audio/video store while looking for full employment in my “degreed” profession of choice.

 

One day a guy brought in some small floor standing column speakers for us to try. In retrospect, I suspect this was probably the man himself, Stan White, since he was local.

 

I have to admit the Shotglass actually sounded pretty good with surprisingly deep bass for the size it was and with such small drivers.

 

Apparently Stan White had previously designed some horn-loaded systems as well as a servo tweeter.

 

Perusing for more info I ran across the following posts. Kind of interesting stuff.
