Hi Romy,

Got my new Le Cleach tractrix horns (320hz) for the Vitavox S2's.  I'm x-ing over at 600hz with 2nd order 12db/Octave which I know is barbaric for  you but it is all I have for the moment.  With the new horns the S2s are putting out much more HF than with my old tin can rectangular models, though the HF is not as clear as I would like. Imaging is a real problem for the moment but I don't really care as the sound is fantastic.  It is the very stringy cellos with appropriate dynamics, vocals have plenty of subtlety, I really like the sound. I will have to rework my midbass, plans are already under way there.  The horns are indeed made of concrete, and the constructor had a custom throat adaptor made for my Vitavox's to screw into (the throat of the horn itself matches perfectly the S2, he didn't make an adaptor to fit standard 2¬® or 1.4¬®horn...).  I don't plan on using tweeter for time being, though eventually after addressing midbass issue I wil l look at water drops.  Thanks for your help,  R Weissman
