|Are there polar plots available for Seaton Sound speakers? Particularly the Catalysts or Cat 8Cs?|

Not at this time. I have considered sending out a few models for third party testing at one of the few labs which perform such measurements, but currently that's still in the que behind a long list of other things to get done.
There is also very little of such information available on other home audio loudspeaker designs, making such data interesting but not providing much in the way of comparison.

|Thanks Mark. I started looking earlier today - and I was surprised how few manufacturers publish polar data. |
I was more just curious - wasn't really looking for comparison against other speakers... More just to see how they perform on their own.

|I know gainphile and Paul Spencer are obsessed with these measurements |
It will be good to see the results when you do get it done.

|I was looking at plots for Gedlee the other day....... but polar plots are only one single aspect of a speaker...... I'm sure they sound good, but I'd never buy a speaker solely because of good polars......or get too excited about it. (at least IMHO)|
Now, if you're buying a PA array or large venue system....... that's a different story.
I feel like polars are one of those things that can easily be used to make an (bad) apples to orange comparison.
I apparently like lots of dots today..........
