I'll admit that I've found this driver a little confusing. It has a higher fs than the original lab 12, but a similar sensitivity, and it's a bigger driver.

This is just a first go with it... lots of sim fun ahead.

In all honesty, I wish the resonance was higher.
Or - you could just tune the horn lower, like down near 15 Hz.....

This is an interesting driver - someone must have a proper home planned for it.

Different drivers altogether.

Believe me, we have been playing with this driver in Hornresp since we found it.
