Jeffery,    I think Romy brought up some good points about moving the crossover up. I've always wanted to push it down, to use the hf driver more as a full range unit, which is probably the wrong to go. Steve proved this to me when we ...

You have some very good ideas, some I hadn't thought of before, the main reason for the 300hz crossover is to keep the crossover out of any important areas of music and voices. Moving the crossover up might solve some problems, especially the huge hf...

Romy,     You make all very good points. I probably shouldn't call the front of the driver a phasing plug, because actually the long wavelengths really don't care much about the shape of the exit, they will just pass right through...

Do you think it would be possible to find the proper location by using a smaller pair of speakers, and then substitute in the big horns? At least to get to a close position? Our big horns are rarely moved more than a couple of inches in any direction...

Romy, I just got a Vitavox S2 into my shop today. I notice that it has a very heavy stainless screen on the front, do you leave the screen on when using the drivers? It looks like it restricts about 50% or more of the throat exit.Rich Drysdale...
