Default Most built tapped horn?

Is there a particular design that has been built the most? Or perhaps a specific driver that has worked the best for the most amount of designs?

Default the Eminence Kappalite 3015LF WAS probably the most popular

driver - especially for medium to large tapped horns.

Now it has become a little expensive for most tastes.

Regards, Ben

For med to smaller tapped horn the Eminence Definimax 4012HO 12" has been used a lot. Really great tapped horn driver and good price because it doesn't use a neo magnet.

The Insubnia is pretty darn popular.

I published a variant on the Insubnia which uses the Alpine 8" woofer instead of the Diycable 7" woofer. My variant offers the following advantages:

#1 - You can get the Alpine all over the world
#2 - Diycable appears to be selling off their remaining inventory, so if you use their woofer and you kill it, it may be unreplaceable
#3 - The Alpine offers more output because it has a greater displacement

Thanks for the replies!

What about for larger/lower tapped horns? Perhaps even 18" 35hz guys?

Well considering there was a flat pack available for that mini exodus horn, and they guy who had 100 flat packs is almost out now, maybe that's the most built horn?
I dunno if there's Any real way to keep track of who builds each design.

The ss15 is pretty darn popular. I built one then within a couple weeks I built another so the first wasn't lonely
