Unless donunus ‘s cousin is in the USA, those horns will cost a fortune to ship. Another way to write it is it never sounds entirely right to me in a small room or through headphones, so I’ve given up on reproducing live bass at home.

Any important constrains you have, like space for cabinets, woodworking skills or lack thereof, budget, etc? Every Good Wish, Doc.

Much appreciated, and God Bless!

CspirouJan 8, If I were to go to one pair I’d keep the s as they are more versatile and look cooler.

I’ll have to get to know the acoustics protesters well, as they also have a dummy head. I think that, for now, I’ll just leave both sets of horns where they are, and when time presents, will have some fun with them, just for grins.

Thad E Ginathom and Wilson like this. If you’re worried about the horns ringing putting some non hardening modeling clay in the lips deadens the horns.

Hi Doc, You may find these measurements useful, so throwing them into the hopper: Me, I am addicted to the sound of well done horn speakers, but some people find them annoying.

Sebastopol, Sltec Home Page: Crossing higher, orI hear no difference between s and s. Would be fun to get to use this stuff to measure some speakers and headphones. I even used them crossed at 1st order with no problems in home use with Altec 811v but JBL s used on the crossed at hz 1st order “clacked”.
