Just FYI, a friend of mine in Hawaii bought 2 pairs of the horns, mid and high. He says they are very nice. I'm glad to hear it, as I showed him this thread!

depth 450 mm i.e. 18 , for a 2" exit I suppose

What CDs are people using with the IWATA-300??

I have some P-Audio 2" compression drivers I was going to try. They have smooth/extended HF response, however, I'm not sure how low they will play comfortably. With no 2" horns currently in the inventory, I haven't been able to play around with them much.

I'd probably be tempted by some JBL 244* series drivers with beryllium diaphragms as I've heard those a few times on horns with similar low frequency capabilities.

All my searches for JBL 244* series stuff has them priced > $300. Even on Ebay they are not cheap P.audio seems reasonable on US Speaker but how will the sound compared to maybe B&C or BMS??

Im going to search the muti-way speaker forum. I think I remember a build with the Radian 760PBs.

If I had to guess, they are probably just outside of the league of B&C and BMS but I don't have much experience with large format compression drivers. What thing that seems consistent is that there arent a lot of cheap options. It seems that if you want inexpensive, you'll sacrifice either top or bottom end to get there.

Yes, I just was on USSpeaker looking at that choice (well the 750 model before that one). Nice price on loudspeaker plus!!

I have zero experience with 2" CDs too. I have many, many 1" choices. Found some links to used JBL 244* 2" offerings but they are stil > $300.

Definitely the costs are up there on all of them, Im far from a believer in price equals performance too. I do like BMS (I use the 4550), Im just curious to how the P-audio brand will sound. My Radians sound different then my BMS and my Celestion sound different then both of those.

Doug, maybe Autotech can get some? I'll find out. If nothing else, they should know what might work best in each of their products.
