Question volvotreter 38hz tapped horn

I plan to build volvotreter's 38hz tapped horn. The design asks for Tangband W6-1139SC or W6-1139SG.

I'm unable to source these drivers, can I use w6-1139sif or w6-1139si?

The 1139SI will be very close to the SG. Should drop in without an issue.

I'd also consider the 25Hz TH originally designed for the Exodus Anarchy 6.5" midbass. I used some W6-1139SG drivers in those and was very very impressed.

I have build one of the volvotreter subs with the w6-1139SI. See my gallery

Although these subs go pretty low with this 6.5 drivers. I could not manage more then 17.6 volts into it and it lags in the 'loud' department meaning you need to build at least 3 or 4 of them to make some impression. I say up the ante and go for example the martinson THAM10 HT (or HTL)
