Can you recommend a good model to clone for home use? ,even if I had to scale them down a bit.
I'm liking the idea.

The Altec model 19 is well loved for home use. It's not small though. How big a box can you stand?

Bigger the better!

I like the "big voice of theater" models. (A7 type, but I see you guys don't recomend them for home use.)

Not sure what you mean. Done right, they can sound great. I happen to love the multi-cell horns but a lot of folks are happy with the 511 or 811 horn. That would keep it as an A7-500 or A7-800. Sometimes there were turned upside down and the horn placed in the vent area to save space.

Still big fellows, tho.

Thanks Michael and Pano.

I will build them, so the main obstacle will be getting some horns.
I figured I could play around with different drivers.

I liked the idea of these, rather then traditional "big" speakers.
I need some more bottom end without "EQ"ing on my PC - big volume is the way to go.
I have the option to bi-amp them as well.

I've got some reading to do. The A9 looks interesting too.

Let me know if you need horns - I gottum. Tho shipping to Canada might be killer.
They do show up on eBay frequently.
