Have you looked at the 15PR400? Lower le, lower mms, would probably need a larger enclosure, but other wise the specs look better to me than the FP 15FH510

Ultimately, you trade size for extension.

As far as I can see mass of cone is not really that important, rather the magnets motive power & strength. A light cone with rubbish magnet is worse than a cone 3 times the weight with a great motor. I guess its a power to weight ratio type thing?

interesting read here Adire Audio tech paper on transient response with input from Dan Wiggins of Adire Audio. I cant find the paper unfortunately

Without doubt. Consider though, a light cone and a strong magnet. The Faitals and Beyma drivers look best from current selection. I would of course inlcude the AE drivers in there as well.

More cells = more better, in my book. At least for typical domestic listening.
Given the choice between multi-cell and "One Hole" horns, I've made my choice.

That's a classic, love it. Laugh if you will, but a buddy of mine showed me photos of a house in Crete he visited that was just about that bad. All horns, with the bass horns extending way out into the garden. Crazy inside, with the giant horn mouths.

Somewhat more restrained is this famous system.

Pano,
Would you expect somewhat similar performance from the wooden iwata forns with fins in the mouth?

Well I was thinking that the theory of operatin should be the same. Basically an attempt to prevent beaming of HF signal, intentitonally creating HF lobing.

Sectionals don't work as well, IMO. They aren't terrible, tho, unless badly built.
