I just listened to this system http://www.hornfabrik-eder.de/index.htm which has an 8" Görlich in the upper bass horn and I couldn´t find anything "inherently faulty" about > 4" without compression. The kettledrums sounded as they should and I found the bass is rather the strength of that system.
The suggestion of trying the Visaton minibass wasn´t a joke. I don´t know your horn´s geometry, but in general it simulates quite nicely with 100dB sensitivity and not too rugged response.
It was intersecting Horns installation, in many ways deriding from many of Macondo axioms…
The horn loaded Görlich? Well, it might be controversial even though I love the Görlich drivers. I have to note that it is absolutely impossible to predict how a driver might sound horn loaded, so all my concerns might be a not be applicable. However, I do have some theoretical concerns for this given placation. Let me to enumerate them:
1) 8" Görlich has too low resonant frequency for upperbass horn
2) Görlich has very soft suspension made from quite resonant rubber
3) Görlich has too much excursion for the duty
4) Görlich has too little sensitively
5) Alleged need to for sharper then necessary high-pass filter
Saying all of it I have to add – you never know and horn loaded Görlich need to be tried as any other driver-candidate. I might only assume that Görlich would require a different type of back chamber chandelling then the other better horn drivers. What kind handling is possible to say one during the actual experiments and the actual listening…
Well, all things shell come in right time. If I was in a “experiments mode” with my upperbass then I would try it but I do not see myself to do it at this point. It would be interesting to hear the thoughts of the guys who did try to horn load Görlich. Unfortunately I do not read German and I do not know what the linked guy says (if he says anything about the subject)
