Not for everyone I know.
I got a pair of PM6A drivers from a friend. They were in bad condition.
Had Jon VH rebuild them with new cone, spider, basket and silver voice coil.
Only original part is the Alnico magnet.

You would want to hear the 16 ohm silver voice coils.



edit: I see you have!

I would really like to hear the Lowthers, but i can put together a realy nice horn for same money. I am sure I will have one before too long, but will have o audition them first. Its a big purchasse for me. I am picking horns because they make me feel like a real audio big shot
I know I am wierd on the "tone" thing, especially in HifI. Oh well. I guess I like a little color in my music. Nobody wants to hear what it really sounds like

Buzz, you need to look into the recent Lynn Olson "Beyond the Karna" thread. His choices will work just as you want them to, whereas the Lowther's take some heavy lifting to get the best from them. Mine are up and running with Gen 2 EnABL and they are exquisite, but just the Lowther's isn't enough.

Of course, just the horns aren't either. But at least there you can make paper mache' prototypes first., unless you follow someone's advice who actually knows what he wants, it is what you want, he knows how to get it and you can afford it. You might PM Pano too, he is in your part of the country and is also quite experienced with horns.

Bud

Lynn's thread is what I have been following. Talked to Pano too. Will start planning everything soon. So you are liking your Lowther/Eminance series XO setup. Good to hear.
