Now the best i found e-jmlc 1000 wich is wide and quet flat
but it drops down 12db from the midrange part to the hight
(dont shure its horn maybe it is driver bms 4538)

You've seen this thread:
High Frequency Compression Driver Evaluation

right? That should steer you in the right direction.

EDIT: Oops! You are looking for a horn, not driver. Well, I do know that those horns work very well and are priced well. As they are close to you, shipping should not be too bad.

Hi,

If its not obvious wide dispersion and flat response don't have to go together.
EQing the response is typical with high efficiency horn loaded tweeters, and
this can lead to reduced distortion lower down when EQ'd to flat.

rgds, sreten.
