The one I have sounds quite interesting, at low SPL, but turning up SPL, ouch
But its a real cheap one, and might be improved
Yeah, I am a bit puzzled about the quality at low SPL

I plan to try this little fellow in the mid horn
It can be crossed quite low
I wouldnt count on loud SPL tho
Its the clarity Im after
Total cost stereo is around 60EUR
But its just fore the fun of it
And as a learning process

Im not sure, but its maybe the H-1575 made by Zomax
But the Zomax I have seen cost twice as much
No specs there either
Mouth opening is 200x400mm
Smoothing out the throat may result in about 1-1.5" exit
It would also be relatively simple to prolong the mouth radius
I suppose 700hz would be ok

I mostly bought bacause it was cheap, and looked good

I'm sure these were DBTs where you weren't influenced by the appearance of the speakers and not once did you look down the throat of the horn and think to yourself, "It shall sound like a horn."

As far as I know the above system belongs to a fellow South Afican, New member worth noting
He's no longer active on the forum.

That's true (i.e., I could be a victim of self-deception). Though hearing differences in speakers is not exactly an extraordinary claim.

Never heard Drew Daniels's monster JBL system. Maybe that's the Holy Grail...
