Default compression drivers/ sql 2-way

alright, here it is... i wanna go deaf. i like my tunes loud as hell. i'm tired of buying comps and not being satisfied. this time i'm gonna build a very loud sql system. i think my only option without running multiple drivers and tweets is to go with an active 2-way system. does anybody run horns anymore? they were huge like 3 years ago. i wish the Image Dynamics CD2COMP's weren't so exspensive. are the lower lines comparible?

also, who maks a good 7"/8" midbass driver that will match-up pretty good with horns. i plan on powering these mids with either the zapco 750.2 or the audison vxr 400.2

Maybe you could use Dynaudio midbass drivers, they will handle a lot of power....

Start saving for your hearing aid soon.....

Parts Express has a bunch of Goldwood piezo drivers for about a buck and a half each, last I recall...

A hundred of them would accomplish your goal of going deaf rather fast.

sounds like a "line-array" home audio set-up. lets keep it to car audio.

I don`t know the price for the Image Dynamics. A smith horn would be flat and also fit into a car. But this one from Visaton isn`t cheap, either.

What's scary is I've actually seen installs like that in a vehicle

Absolutely no potential for a good soundstage...are you actually concerned with getting a good stereo image or are you just concerned with volume?

These would both go well with horns

If you want to go with horns it's usually cheaper to pick up a pair of used horn bodies for about $100 and buy the drivers seperately.

I used these BMS drivers and really liked them

These Radians are also nice as well

i had someone tell me theres no such thing as sql. he mentioned that horns are pure sq and that i would not be happy with the sound if i listen to mainly metal. what do y'all think/

what is the comparison between image dynamics amd bms? i thought the cd2 pro neos were the best

I listen to mostly metal and my horns played it better than any of the other speakers I've used.

The cd2 pro neo drivers are just rebadged B&C DE500's

I liked the BMS drivers because they are a very smooth sounding without the harshness some other horns have.
