Oddly enough, I've never heard a Synergy Horn.
I think I need to remedy that - just noticed that there's a local company that rents them:

Audio Equipment | Nexo Line Array Speakers, EV Speakers, etc. | Special Event Audio Services

Thought I'd post that, since it's in our back yard

Once you hear a properly set up Synergy there is no going back. I recommend the SH46 or SM60F. The Synergy's intelligibility smokes everything I've ever heard. Because they are PA speakers, they can be a little hot in the high frequencies. I recommend they be EQed down a little bit in the highs. That's why I stressed "properly" set up part at the beginning.

The Misco RDC3T-A has just enough suspension compliance to work, anything less compliant would makes things very difficult for you. The suspension compliance of the RDC3T-A is about 3.3E-05m/N

the SM60F looks good for home use, simple build.

The local area flare rate plays the biggest role in how low the mids will play. Mids with higher compliance combined with very pronounced resonance can override this to a degree. Mids with lower compliance and well behaved resonance pretty much take on whatever the local flare rate is. This is covered in the Synergy patent.

Parts Express is replacing the defective DE120 compression driver no questions asked. Great customer service. However, they are on back order and will take about two weeks to come in. One thing to be aware of is the mounting screw size on the data sheet is wrong. The mounting screws are M5 and not M6 as shown on the data sheet. Funny enough, the mechanical drawing file has the screws correctly marked as M5. Time to reorder new screws.
