That he has the scratch, and you don't.

If you have lots of good paying shows booked it makes sense to buy ready made.

If you have time and no money it makes sense to build.

I've been in both situations.

A TH118, as in *one*. Meanwhile, I'm thinking about four *more*. Don't know how soon - could be 6 months or a year.

The cone correction was based on suggestions in earlier parts of the thread - and again in post 1276 when I asked if I should be using correction with my driver. I then went to work laying out several iterations to scale on 1/4" plywood intil I got something I could live with and build easily. Now I have template and measurements for making more.

These cabs play very clean at high levels. No heat and no signs of stress. I'm sure I can bridge the sub amps with no problems if everything wrere carefully set up and controlled.


The older horns didn't get mouth bracing because I realized their limitations before they were finished. I just kept using them that way, as the biggest problem was heat and compression which kept the output down. The choices were either upgrade to a low compression driver (15TBX100) and finish them (braces, sand, paint) or to build something new with a friendlier truck pack for not much more money. Not to mention the perfect excuse to try out the newer B&C's which also model very well in horns tuned in the 25-30 Hz range... giving me the option to eventually replace the lab stack.

Well time is alway a factor as Dennis ,djk, stated below I would pay someone to build one of these minus the driver if that was a option I just don't have the time to do it I have too many projects and gigs.

No measurements yet - need a calm weekend when I don't have something else going on. The only measurement so far was to align the crossover - that was in-room and I didn't bother saving it.

Subjectivey, they dig as deep as advertised. It will be interesting to see exactly how much ripple I get with the TBW100's, but I need controlled conditions to get anything valid. Another interesting comparison might be to drop in an Omega Pro 18 and see if it even works at all. The cone would probably shred at high power, but it would be informative to see if the FR is as bad as the sims say it would be.

I have two new TH115's and according to Chad at Danley the combo of the TH115's and the TH118 is amazing the best of both worlds.
