I should also note that the first comment was along the use of a CD horn that maintained its high dispersion well into the upper range while the lower testimony was with a 250hz JMLC

The first comment on the Axi2050 vs 951BePB is by Björn Omholt, I suppose?
If you want to cross <500Hz and play at high SPL, the Axi2050 would definitely beat the 951BePB.
I am sure at 300Hz and >115dB, the Beryllium diaphragm won't last long.
Björn Kolbrek stated, he wouldn't hesitate to use the Axi2050 at, or even below 200Hz behind a proper horn at home.


The Axi2050 is (only) about $500 each, if you could order these through an OEM.
Some Romanian guys use the Axi2050 with these EV HP9040 horns:

It looks crappy, but the concept makes sense; Chinese (supposed to be) 300Hz horn (about 60cm width x 40cm height) + 18".

Utilizing the Axi2050 and TD18H+, such a configuration would meet all criteria of this thread.

I guess the 18" shown is a B&C - isn't it ?

FWIW, some additional images of the separate horntop and even a response plot (driver unknown).

The cone resembles the cones of some B&C drivers, but it's probably a clone.

500 each?! I see some 950GBP per side in the UK!

Any pointers from EU shops?

You won't find the Axi2050 at 500 each anymore, at least not in the shops.

This was the pre-launch price:
