Default W8-1772

Hi,

I know many here have used the W8-1772 in an open baffle application, but I was curious whether anyone here has tried the W8-1772 with horn such as the Azurahorns 160Hz or the Oris 150 horns.

Any idea why this driver would or would not work in the aforementioned application. I did speak to a fellow forum member who used the TB W8-1808 with the Oris 150s and was able to achieve excellent results.

Unfortunately, I am not as technically competent to be able to determine after reviewing the specs for the W8-1772 that it would be as (or more or less) suitable as the W8-1808 for front loaded horn application.

Any thoughts/comments would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
D

Darkheart,
nice setup, I like the woof cabs ?

And the rock under them.

How do you have the woofs hooked up ?

I see 2 nad receivers............

I've had luck running woofs alongside fullranges wide open, but the woofs naturally rolled at 200hz or so (helped baffle step / fltecher-munson curve).

Norman,
these are active Audio-Pro Wigo sub-woofers crossed at 65hz 4th order inbuilt LPF. I don't like to cross them any higher then 75hz (max possible is 100hz). I am using only one NAD stereo amplifier in this setup.

Where do you get the W8-1772 drivers? I haven't seen them in my Parts Express catalog.
