Default PA sat with Tractrix horns for pubs

Here`s a 3way PA satellite I developed for use in a local pub. They will be hanging from the ceiling and augumented below cca 100 Hz by an active sub (two EighteenSound 15LW1500). The upper bass will be reproduced by EighteenSound 10MB600, the midrange in a 60 cm dia tractrix horn is a EighteenSound 6ND430 and for high frequencies EighteenSound ND1030 in a 16cm dia tractrix horn.
The whole combination sounds very powerfull and lively. Now, for hifi use the midrange would need some RCL trap centered at 900Hz, but since it was meant for PA, it however doesn`t have one.

Best regards,

Miro

Interesting design to say the least!

Graphs are great, but how does she sound?

Well, with bigger woofer and single ended amps (tube or transistor), they could be used for HiFi. The sound is highly transparent and up front, but also very balanced, when listened to with subwoofers.

Horns were built to the specifications a gave to my friend and partner in crime ajbor (a diyaudio member) and were made out of fiberglass.
As of how they were built, he knows better than me.
