Does seeing this 10k+kHz roll-off and/or resonances indicate that a 1" throated horn driver is just too big for extended frequency response in the domestic High Fidelity duty?
I have seen just a couple of slightly smaller driver throats, but the market seems to be aimed at the PA duty. 1" and 2" throats have enormous diaphragms.

What is available in horn drivers that can extend smoothly to 18kHz and/or beyond?

Does anyone make a good (but affordable) ~30mm diaphragm with 15mm throat that can perform up to the top end of the audio range smoothly.

Talking Okay

So right im gonna get a setup from a friend to test the speakers properly.
Ive just picked up the 19mm ply for the bass bins, so will build the system up first and then do the tests.
The horns are still in the test stages so can be changed as needed after tests
But for now got a big deco gig in Austria to do so gonna leave it for 2 weeks till thats done.

Like i said anyone got any ideas for ANY t/s specs that i can use in hornresp to model the horn i need. As well there are no specs for KENFORD.
