600-700 Hz ???

The driver doesn't sound strained at all, at least not in the clip.
Taking into account the (likely) less than ideal transition from the exit through the adapter to the horn throat, the actual result is even more astonishing.

I'm afraid I shall have to order a pair

Lets see what works best in Yuichi. Ketone Faitals based on the hf1440, are smooth criminals, I don't feel any pull to try another brand yet even though I liked the smallest BMS 4526HE (w. 4524 diaphragms) in hORNS Mummy. Airy sound without sibilant ss's and velour like smooth mids that are Aloe Vera to the ears, yes please.
Hi Legis, did you use the HF108 or 108R?

WOw! Those sound great. I think I have to get myself a pair of the HF108 and try out different waveguid-horn combos.

Hello Legis.
This is the project that I was following from beginning. Thank you for sharing.
I'd like to build something like that (maybe in V configuration) and have a dilemma which driver to use in 800+hz.
I really like the sound on your video with Faital HF1440, it's seems that it got more body then HF108, but you prefer HF108 over it.
I want to use 4x10" JBL2251J - they are usable from 125-150hz and up and crossover them in 800-900hz.
For bass duty I can use 2x18 or 4 x15 below and above them. Those JBLs mids have a beautiful tone and realistic sound, and it's seems that they have same cones (but 10") as your Fanes.
For drivers my choice is:
18 Sound ND1460A $270
Faital HF108(R), $137
Faital HF1440 - expensive!
Any advice on horn and drivers from real experience will be appreciated.

Looks like TLHP have the lowest price for European drivers!
Kartesian got too much marketing, I'll leave them aside.
