Not me, but based on this info it should work quite well with some EQ and a super tweeter, just don't 'let the smoke out' of the woofer as it appears to be a 'rara avis': http://www.hostboard.com/cgi-bin/ult...ic&f=3729&t=43

Sorry, don't know what you mean by "the smoke out' of the woofer as it appears to be a 'rara avis".

Be careful, these are fairly rare AFAIK and it will be easy to overdrive it enough to damage it on an open baffle if used full range and not sure if there's still repair parts available.
