No.
I think a phase plug will suffice.

Where was that phase plug measurement again? So certain I've seen either the Fane or Eminence 12" with/without plug graphs somewhere!
Considering cutting up my 15", just want to have some slight bit of information about it first.

Thought I would have a go at modifying the dispersion with some foam, this is where I'm at so far:


Red = on axis
Blue = 15 degrees
Green = 30 degrees

Lighter traces are with foam, dark without.

Is that for the 12-250TC driver or? This thread has kind of gone all over the place talking about differing drivers other than the main topic driver is why I ask? Thanks

Please post pictures of your phase plug. I`m using a 15 inch Fane and would like to see what you have done.

So far 6 layers with 120mm holes, 1 with 30mm and outside with 20mm although better with 2 x 30mm layers, all 6mm thick open cell foam, not reticulated.

Finished some 78L sealed cabs today for my set of 12-250-TCs. At the moment, they are just bare ply; I'll veneer them further down the line:

They sound great.
These Fanes really are super full-rangers.

OK, a few early observations.
The rising response as seen on the published FR plot, is of no consequence in a real room situation. Angling the speakers to fire straight ahead in combination with half space placement deals with it nicely.

In hi-fi terms, coloration is low; remarkably low for a full-range driver, the presentation is nice and smooth overall and bass is quick, agile and even, though ultimate extension is lacking. They might go a bit lower as the suspension breaks in; other full-rangers develop more bottom end as they run in, so I don't expect this one to be any different.

Vocals are very very good, as are saxes, strings, brass, electric guitar and Hammond organ. A relaxing listen, free from wince inducing moments.

But......it's at the top end where these drivers show their fabulousness. How the hell do they get so high and so clean?
