I guess from a modern 'HIFI' POV it would be the 604-8H III, but the early 1 kHz XO with a real multicell would be mine and many collectors, so generally never see the light of day.

Not that I'm aware of.

Some of us tried to get Bill/GPA to add a large enough WG to use the optimal 1 kHz XO for blending to a 15" when retooling/upgrading, but didn't happen.

Otherwise, the 604E that I've the most experience with has been rebooted to 604E Series II, so my 'best of the rest'.

with the driver below, I think its large horn contributes to the 1K4 or so dip. That said, for $139.95 (originally $380) with compression driver at Loudspeakersplus, I'd give it a consideration. (assuming adequate driving power)

Not sure about those latest P.Audio products, seems to get bad reviews, too much plastic etc.

There are different quality or density to plastic horns I guess but I wasn't necessarily talking about the horn itself only but the overall design of the complete driver - Ive just seen bad reviews of these new P.Audios and it looks not very rugged like they used to be from casket to magnets etc. But I really have no idea so why not try, its not so expensive.

Any reference to 15" Beyma 15XA38Nd?
Common neodymium magnet for both drivers.

Beyma makes 3 big coaxials
