Plan for a High-End Horn Loudspeaker
 
I'm searching for a plan to build a Speaker with extremely good sound and high output capabilities...So I think a good Horn would do this job best... But where are plans for good Hifi-Horns with high output?
A Fullrange Horn isn't loud enough.
As Subwoofer I'd use a TUBA 36 but I also want the Loudspeakers to play deep clear and smooth at high levels.

Thanks,David ;)

How 'bout something like Rog Mogale's 186 horns (two per channel) and for mid-high a pair of JBL 2360B horns diven by some BMS 4592NDs?

Do you really think that this sounds good like a Hifi-Loudspeaker??? I don't Such two way Speakers are always a compromise...they don't have dood mid's AND high's...

But thanks for this opinion ;)

The BMS 4592's are actually coaxial compression drivers. I've been using the 4590's for about 4 years and they're excellent, with the 4592's reputed to be better.

You used them for what? Hifi or PA?
Sorry I-haven't seen that these are Koaxial-Drivers ;)

Hifi, in a number of differnt flares from the Arai 290Hz Hypex to tractrix and conicals and even some old JBL, EV and Yamaha. Now my horn rig is disassembled (new house too small for it), I'm thinking of putting one in my bass guitar rig in a conical above a pair of 15's.

What should I use in the area from 30/40Hz to about 400Hz where i would set the crossover frequency...

I used an expo driven by a 15 up to about 500, then crossed to the BMS. Easy to model in Hornresp for your driver of choice.

This is also a very good sounding flare, if you can deal with the 140Hz FL.
