My Raals are still going strong, after being hornloaded down to 2kHz for 2-3 years. Going to add another compression driver for upper midrange to see how that sounds like. I have had an allergy for anything heavier than .001 grams-something in the high frequency for a while.

What did you go for instead? Plasma? Bluetooth portable speaker?

Interesting. Please keep us posted. I have TPL-150H and have considered a 2" CD for the midrange but have to buy the CD and grew concerned of the center to center distance between such large tweeter and midrange, at 2kHz. Interested in learning how things pan out for you.

One word. Iwata. it shrinks a large horn vertically and also has a more relaxed sound than round horns. This system has to be time-aligned in DSP for space constraints. The directivity suffers so you have to sit and stare into the throat to get good highs. And with a deep horn it is no longer in supertweeter territory. I almost need another pair of Raals above ~10kHz.

Your nice and dark room is...eeee...dark! not sure what I should see.
Iwata was in the cards. Still seems c-to-c would be large for 2kHz xo. But then I haven't tried it.
DSP time alignment is part of the system. No problem.
I wouldn't use the CD horn above 2kHz so directionally in the treble wouldn't be that big of an issue.

How low do you plan to take the midrange horn? 2kHz down to...?

Forgot to switch the light on. I will start with 1400Hz and then I don't know. People use Raal from 12kHz, but I think that is wasteful.

The Fane Studio 8M is not doing much at the moment and probably never will. The 15" will hopefully be replaced by a midbass compression driver soon.

Starting at 1400Hz for the Raal or for the midrange CD? Rather low for the Raal and rather high for the midrange

No, I mean 1400Hz or upwards for the second channel of comöression drivers. But impossible to say if I like it when the horns are done.
