Default Horn matching BMS 4590 / BMS 4592 2" throat

What horn would be better for the 2" throat BMS 4590 or BMS 4592?

I found some models online made of different materials. How does fiberglass, polyurethane foam and aluminium compare to each other? Polyurethane foam seems like a better material to me since it can dampen resonances, but I don't know how it works it real life.

B&C ME75 - 90 x 40 aluminium horn
Beyma TD460/N - 60 x 40 polyurethane foam horn
Beyma TD400/N - 90 x 40 polyurethane foam horn
JBL 2385A - 60 x 40 polyurethane foam horn
JBL 2382A - 120 x 40 polyurethane foam horn
JBL 2380A - 90 x 40 polyurethane foam horn
BMS 2236 - 60 x 40 fiberglass horn

Are there any good 2" horns I'm missing?

Observation: I know 1.4" throat drivers have less distortion, specially the BMS 4593HE which has much lower distortion than the 4590, but costs almost double the price, since the 4590 has much cheaper ferrite magnets.
