Default Two way Tractrix horn with active sub

I have built those with Eighteensound ND 2060A compression driver (60 cm Tractrix horn) and 8M 400 8" cone driver (93 cm horn). I listen to the system through Foobar active crossover plugin. The woofer is a transmission line with an 8" noname unit. On the photo there are still some tweeters attached, which have lately become obsolete and eventually removed. The sound is great, though!

very nice !

have you compared the 2060A with any other compression driver ?
Did you make the horns by yourself ?

Horns were made by my friend Bojan.

Best regards,

looks great! love horns.
so there is no need for phaseplug for woofer?
in my little experience there is always a huge dip in horn loaded woofer's frequency responce. though it's not a problem, if dip is above crossover frequency.

The passive crossover is set to 900 Hz and everything works great, no dips. Big, effortless sound, very lively.
