Mark, your active Synergies are more appealing (at least to me) than passive SH50s, if only because of the considerable cost savings as well as the opportunity to improve the appearance.

We have to bear in mind the SH50s are designed for extremely high SPL, which is plain overkill at home.
I am convinced there's some room for refinement, if we let go of the SPL requirements.

Besides, elimination of these crossover parts isn't a bad thing either.

That's only one of two in that box

You are right that a lower output version offers many opportunities.

Yes, DIY to get away from that PA/industrial look
I especially like Mark's stands (with the dual 18's)
Pity DIYers are forced to choose between small SEOS or small printable horns and large wooden conicals.

Early SH50, still with B&Cs instead of FaitalPro 12"

Glad you liked that !

But you know, it's kind of ironic ....the conversation about relaxing SPL to build a better synergy for home use...
...because the synergy so outruns the dual 18" stack, I had to move it back on top of two double 18" push-push subs...and those four 18"s can't keep up with it either
I'm pretty dang certain the syn, which is only pulling duty from 100Hz up, has quite a bit more SPL in it, than the SH-50.

Anyway, I really agree with the sentiment for a more aesthetic home synergy.

@Cowanaudio...I want to see you make a synergy out of that awesome horn you showed your're working on for the dcx464

I’m attempting to DIY, some pretty large horns, I’d think printing a synergy enclosure is less complicated.

One day it goes into storage or changes hands and whoever finds it can't get it to work, so tosses it.

Yes, but the key question is: "Are those 5" midranges and the ancillary complexity really necessary?".

Danley does need to consider power handling, I'd say it is.
