Hi !

Thanks for those informations, I'm learning a bit every day
I would love to give a try to the speaker, just to see what we can get from it, it would one of the cheapest suitable driver for the Othorn if it was able to survive and if the motor has enough power (I imagine we can't really know without a real try ?).

Otherwise I'm gonna watch out the Oberton 18XB1500.
- 310€ (+50€ compared to the FaitalPRO 18HP1030-4)
- 11mm xmax / 7.5mm
- 126dB@30hz@600W
- 188.9 N*s/m / 161.2 N*s/m loaded

Quite close to the 18sw115 but 80€ cheaper for the price of a lower Xmax and a bit less SPL output.
Those 80€ are definitly not negligible when you have to get 2.

FaitalPRO 18HP1030 would be the better solution if it could handle the Othorn but if it can't I will head on to the Oberton 18XB1500.
