Is that little drive OK for OB??? If not, you might want to close the back off and remeasure.

I like it.

I think the W2-800sl would be better though.

Oh, lots of questions I see, well, it sure is a strange mix that's for sure, no I have not gotten around to measuring yet, but that's due to the fact that I can't seem to find my old PAA2, you simply have to trust me when I say it sounds rather ok.

I have thought about adding a small enclosure on the back, but I'm afraid it will amplify the lower regions even further, and take away the upper end, but maybe I'm wrong about this, there is only one way to find out right .

Since about 5 years ago it's Linux all the way, but i must confess to having played around with PC-BSD (UNIX) as well, but Mint is simple to use, nice looking, sounds really good (yes there are differences between different OS), I have had it with MS-virus and apple lock-in payed for problems

W2-800sl you say ? well I did'nt exactly have this application in mind when i brought these ones on what basis do you think the W2-800sl would be better ?

I'm currently enjoying music on a "decent" sound level, with ok quality, hard to think it's just two 2" and one 6,5" driver that provides the sound so in that respect it's a rather uniqe little system I would say, two 2" FLH's and one 6,5"TH, talk about "less is more"

Thanks for posting your W2 horn application. Often times a most satisfying result is unplanned. I've been playing around with the W2-800sl and found that it is pretty darn smooth sounding with pretty darn good dispersion for a 2". Front horn loading is a great idea if you can afford the form factor/WAF. And since it is already a 2" there are a lot of possibilities. Perhaps, the 800sl would work well because it is an inverted metal cone which happens to be the same configuration of a compression driver when loaded into a horn, but has a bit of x-max and a lower fs. On the other hand the 803sm appears to be able to go a bit lower and louder. However, the bottom line is that you are getting really good sound. Keep us posted with any updates to your system.

I just looked up the 803sm and on second thought, because of the phase plug it should have the better last octave or so. I've been reading up on some waveguide experiments and the ring radiators with phase plugs seem to have the better top end. Something about the phase plug affecting the reflections in the throat in a way that aids (mitigates the cancellation?) the top end.

I wonder if there are any other 2" horns out there that might be worth a try ? I have a coupple of B&C ME60 aswell, but they do not load below 800Hz i belive, the JBL2386 are quite uniqe in thet they actually load down to 350Hz.
