are you familiar with turbosound or eaw boxes these are a newer approach to horn loaded mids employing phase plugs

but, im thinking that designing a tapped horn for midbass frequencies, ie:120-500hz will net me a bigger peak in that bandwidth than even a front loaded horn will give. am i correct in this thought train? or is the front loaded the way to go?

JBell's HS12 top?
Not sure if the Delta12 could drop in to it... that driver wouldn't work with BFM designs which is a shame as I'd reccomend an OT12 otherwise - only because I'm going to build 2x OT12 myself to go above 4x SS15

Lol at the asian pop group! Ot12 pretty sure is the omni top 12. Its a BFM cab design. Front loadedmid horn with a central stack of dual arrayed piezo tweeters like a mini line array in the mouth of the horn
