That could have been the Meyer Sound UPA2

I see fascinating designs from experienced semi-professionals and well-credentialled specialists, who build for the various elements of the soundsystem scene. For example boxes that pack the equivalent driver compliment and broadband directivity of a KF850 into a smaller and lighter package.
There is Danley.

TL;DR - I'm sure the X40 works at least a bit better all around, compared with what came before. I'm more interested in seeing something that scales up all the weight-saving and other practical efficiencies employed in that design. I don't care who builds it, as long as it gains traction and I can actually use it!
We're back to the UPA2 again...which is a more flexible box than the X40 in my opinion, at least they can be arrayed which means the system can be scaled up easily.

I agree with almost everything in your post, there is just one thing...I don't really see this box as a revolution, or anything special, its just another new box that will offer more of the same. A loudspeaker on a stick on a sub...that won't scale up.
