Could you share some details on this? I am hoarding several of these woofers that I had bought for extremely good price.

Kindest regards,

camplo should take distortion into consideration, because his requirements lean towards PA.

And your evidence for this is where?

Many people tend to focus on specific technical features, while overlooking the aspects that define the actual sonic performance.


Example.

Build 2 cabs with the same horn/waveguide + comp. driver, one optimized for a 2226, the other for the 15PR400.
XO is 1000Hz and both are tweaked, tuned and voiced to death...

I bet, if a string quartet, piano/harpsichord, female vocal or whatever acoustic music is played through both systems, the 15PR400 loaded cab would beat the 2226 cab by a margin.
I have heard both and the 15PR400 is cleaner and better sounding for sure.
The Mids are way cleaner!
