Daze:

Did you have to add any material to the compression chamber to when using the DX4's with the AllFunHorns?

I have DX3's in mine but am thinking about moving to EX4's.

DX4 is the best driver for the Big Fun. Fill the compression chamber to the bottom of the hole that the driver fits into, from what I have been told.

The Big Fun was designed around the DX series of drivers.

In the AFH, no need to fill the chamber. It is already quite small and the DX4 fits right in. Sounds great.

Thanks for the info Jon/Daze. I was worried that the DX/EX4 drivers might not fit in the AFH compression chamber. Looks like I will pull the trigger on the EX4s...

Jon,

With your coaching, I built the Medallion horn for my DX3s. I have them corner loaded in my room. However, they still need a subwoofer to produce significant bass.

Is a subwoofer still required when using the Big Fun Horns and the DX3?
Or stated differently, do most people still add the sub when using the Big Fun Horn?

Thanks,

Allen...

Default Nope

The Medallions have a pretty steep cut-off at about 65 Hz. The Big Fun's cut-off (room dependent of course) is in the mid-30's. Low enough for almost anything. No one I know of uses subs with their BFH's.
