As for driver candidates Seas Prestige FA22RCZ
I own different pairs of back loading horn, I think smooth curve have better speed and energy, didn't hear any unwanted Fq from my horn.
Thanks!

DrBoar is correct that sharp 90* and 180* corners improve the low pass characteristics of a pipe or horn. While a gently curved horn has a great aesthetic and seems intuitive, the physics just don't work that way. Perhaps a compromise would be to make the final scoop at the mouth curved and all of the inner passageways square.
