A FLH with matching basshorn is best, with a Bazzilla concept or huge BLH a good option, but best compromise is probably MJK's Lowther ML-TQWT, which the C45 sims fine in it once some BSC is applied: http://www.quarter-wave.com/Project06/Project06.html

Default C45 in a MLTQWT

Umm, not such a great idea. The C45 has very limited excursion and unless you listen very quietly it will quickly exceed x-max in this type of enclosure. This sounds best in either a bass limited situation (open baffle with a woofer is one example) or in a back loaded horn.

Dick Olsher wrote an article on the use of this driver with an Emminence 12" woofer, using the 5" Lowther from 240 Hz up. I would look this up on enjoythemusic.com and start there.
