Here's some of the things I have had my hand in... Both electrical and cabinetry... The design of the TL subwoofer (and this is one of TWO in that living room) started as my idea... This one was built by the two of us in his driveway, at 10:00 at night! It wouldn't FIT in the workshop! *THAT'S* a big cabinet! It's about 7 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and 4 feet deep - that's 56 CUBIC FEET! - it weighs about 300 pounds, and there are two of them! We feed them with an Adcom GFA-565. EACH! Resonant Frequency? A subterranean 11Hz! (13.5Hz for the other one - it's a little smaller MTX 22'' Jackhammer - Page 6 - Last Post -- posted image.) Verified!
Jeff, I think the one you might be thinking of is possibly the Parasound GMAS - Grand Mother of all Subwoofers. I heard it at the CES about 8 years ago... That one sure didn't last long.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

It was called the thunderdome. Mtx has also made a 64" called the thunder 1,000,000.

There was also an Orca (now defunct, I believe) 36 inch woofer... Saw one, touched it, wanted it... Couldn't have it MTX 22'' Jackhammer - Page 6 - Last Post -- posted image. It was at CircleSound in LA.
If I remember correctly, It had PERFECT specs for a TL, and I think that's why we discovered it... It was tripped across in our driver search.

We can put a 48" cone on our Parthenon if we wanted to.  That's a 68" cone using Kickers way of rating square cone's (diagonal). MTX 22'' Jackhammer - Page 6 - Last Post -- posted image.   And that's with 6" of peak to peak linear excursion as well, or more if you wanted it.

I heard the retail price on one of these would be like $5000. I just drool when I think about the amazing ENTIRE SYSTEM i could build for 5 grand.
Speaking of huge subs, a shop near me has the audiobahn 34" on display. it makes the front of the shop shake, the lowest bass ive ever heard, but pretty much usless for reproducing and actual music.
