From what I have read about the AE drivers I thought they were extremely tuff. I read somewhere that someone was using them in pro audio gear for concerts and live events for like 8yrs with only one fail.

You said low as possible, then you said not easy to blow. These two are a tradeoff. They contradict each other. Directivity may need to be a secondary concern.

The type of horn can be different for these two needs. If you want loud then consider a narrow throat expanding horn, and accept its limits. If you want low consider something more conical.

300Hz waveguide, 1x0,5x0,5 meter, 60deg, 1,4-2" driver. Can be converted into synergy waveguide to save on drivers.

PM me for details.

If the O/P's room dimensions are in feet then I would be more concerned about their hearing distorting and failing than the BMS.

How come the RCF HF950 can have a lower cutoff than that of 400Hz at half the size of the SEOS-24? What’s the catch?

True. More concerned about the AE drivers being in public control. People getting carried away with sustained bass.

I dont understand that either K-horn is much smaller also and can go lower. They seem to be longer though.

I am not that worried about the AE drivers if the BMS is good
