Default Will the Tangband W8-1772 work in a Sachiko double horn

I should have a used pair in the next week or so. Specs at http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...93&ctab=1#Tabs

Space is no longer an issue in my current place (12 ' x 20 ' feet opening up into a much larger space), nor are corners.

Thanks for any input.

Higher Q, larger Vas, less BL, my uneducated guess would be not optimally, but i's wait for Professor Moose to weigh in (now teaching 2 University courses so the professor bit is official).

These one of the pair from Duke?

If i remember correctly a BIB came in at around 80 tall by 14 wide by 20" deep. There is another back horn someone designed that's 52" by about the same width and depth so optimal cabinets for this driver will be large. Enjoy the speakers when you get them. I enjoy the 1808.

Yes, these are one of Duke's pairs

Cabinet size is not a major issue, for once , as long as the foot print is reasonable and they can be tucked away near the corners

For this driver, I'm looking for something with more visual impact than a BIB. I still have my trusty fostex 166e in case the urge to build a BIB bites

Thanks again

Zilla, how are you using your 1808's? I'm interested in this driver but other than a BIB don't know of any enclosure ideas for them. I've been hoping someone would remodel the curvy chang with them in mind.

>>> Zilla, how are you using your 1808's?

Like this:

Open Baffle Speaker - TangBand W8-1808 and Boomer Open Baffle Speaker Kit

They will also work in sealed or ported cabinets but i have not yet modeled them. BIB comes out very large for them... too large imo.

Agreed, a horn is probably not the best idea for the 1808

Whoa! Very interesting, what exactly does the Boomer black box do? Is it both an amp and a crossover?
