who knows, it might turn out so good that you will never be able to beat it, no matter what
How about
AutoTech Iwata-600 - AutoTech Horns - Horns DIY Sound Group
AutoTech E-JMLC-600 - AutoTech Waveguides - Waveguides DIY Sound Group
AutoTech Bi-Radial - AutoTech Horns - Horns DIY Sound Group or even
15 Cell Multicell Horns for JBL,Beyma,Altec, | eBay

I really like the look and performance of the iwata 600 and jmlc 400, but i have found no evidence of its use anywhere, so it would be new ground. The Fane 12-300 looks excellent as well.

The AutoTech horns are very good from owner reports and the raw measurements I've seen. A great choice. The multi-cell look wonderful, wonder what the final price will be?

Pano,
would you choose Jmlc or Iwata? Mat try plastic SEOS 12 just because they are only $25. JRKO, have you seen this option. It would be a very cheap experiment in Horn/waveguide world.
Plastic SEOS DIY Sound Group

Also SEOS 15 resin

It's a toss up for me. I've heard the Iwata profile and thought it excellent. I know that Jean Michel started there and pushed ahead. In theory the JMMLC sound be better. But I've not heard one yet.

If nothing else, more similar to Lynn's 425.

Although the original project was a 3 or 4-way thing, a 2-way can sound plenty big with a good set of drivers. You can splurge more on a 4 drivers total than 6 or 8. TD15M + BMS 4550 on the QSC waveguide in 5.0 cubic foot cabs, mini-DSP Xover, does it for me, just sayin'...

I know TD15M might be a bit much with shipping for you, but I'm sure you can find some great 15" or even 12" that'll do just fine.

completed listings doesnt show any sales but his feedback shows several pairs to happy customers!!! He also makes an 8 cell version which last sold for 180 - 8 Cell Multicell Horns for JBL,Beyma,Altec, | eBay - less visual impact but still pretty and I bet they sound great!

I know its nothing to do with the function but the Iwata looks SO much prettier that the JMMLC. The JMMLC looks like a baby birds beak

This is the conclusion my thoughts & readings have lead to. 800 / 4 = more The other plus is I can get the minidsp instead of the 2x8 saving $200 (but losing 24/96 to 24/48) and spend more on amps.

Nice setup btw IG!
