Research for My first Horn Speaker.

This is my foray into the dark side.
The only horn speakers I have ever heard was a K horn being driven with a Phase Linear 700.
Could not stay in the room.
Now I am curious if it can be better.

I have a 3 DCX2496 and 6 channels of amplification, so I will start with an active system.

My goal is to get the drivers close to 100db or higher efficiency.
I want to be able to experiment with low power amps.
I am also frugal, so I want to use low cost waveguide components.

Compression tweeter
Direct radiation mid
Woofer/Woofers.

JBL 2123 is my starting point Second hand only.

B&C 6MD38 99db $89
B&C 8PE21 98 db $100
B&C 10MD26 100 db $160
B&C 10HPL64 98 db $130

Here is an example speaker.

I will start a thread after I get more research in.
