Just saw this posted on Bob Carver LLC Facebook page. Tony is Bob's sales manager:

Tony Ferrero: Bob Carver LLC is coming out with a speaker that has a single ribbon front driver and 4 side fire drivers (2 on each side). We should have them available later this year. The will have an extruded aluminum housing like the new Amazing Line Source Speaker.

Gary,

Sounds like what Bob may have been proposing we build at Caverfest 2012 in discussion with a few of us during Carverfest 2011. Mentioned crossovers could be pre-assembled to save time. Also mentioned Carverfest tube amps would be adequate to power and further suggested powered sub be added to mix for low end.

That looks like a great idea! I would be interested in a set of those for my 2 channel setup.

Looking forward to seeing what the spec's will be for it.

Heck I am excited about the Line Source speakers and they are waaayyyy outside my price range....

Considering his CRM-2s sold for $1600 a pair back in the day I would expect the new versions to retail for around $2500 or more? :-k :-k

That would be pretty cool. A larger set of CRM-2's but better!

I proposed that idea to James at CarverFest last year. I thought a smaller version would be great for surrounds or as a 'less expensive' alternative to the new ALS. Guess I was right:-) It's a bitch I can't afford either.
