Talaerts, I see the ff225wk is designed for bass reflex, would it work well in a BLH?

I replaced them with the FF225WK. I found the FF225WK more laid back and very pleasant to listen to, and it made very respectable bass in the DBR. The top end needed some help, so I added rear-firing FT17H super tweeters rolled in with a capacitor. It think it does everything just right.

I realize the DBR likely wasn't the optimal enclosure for the FE206en, but even relieved of anything below 200hz it just didn't suit me. I even cut the dust caps and added some phase plugs, but it was a marginal improvement.

Perhaps in some horns. But it works without issue in a simple relatively compact br box and gives good bass.
Very smooth and warm sounding
As noted above it really needs a tweeter.

The markaudio a12p is also very very good but needs a big box for bass.
