I wonder why they finally went for the LTH142 on the Max 2. Maybe just because it looks better than th XT1464. Who knows ?

You're correct, it's the XR1496.

There is no reason to choose the LTH142 over the XT1464, other than looks.
All 18Sound horns sound good, although the plots vary.

The XR1496 seems to rely on diffraction while the XT1464 doesn't. This might cause some other differences than just the dispersion.
But I could imagine that it is probably less severe with its smooth lines compared to all the horns with diffraction slots designed with parallel sides and narrowing straight/flat walls behind them.

Xr1496 horn.

Directivity plot looks nice and smooth.

I'd expect it sounds pretty good (reflections) except for a bit of a corner of mouth to baffle.

Now if we could get rid of that bubble in the throat.
Looks like my horn of now.
