    10uF Mundorf Supreme... exactly the same as before... I seem to be happy with 1uf on my tweets, haven't yet played with a 2uF.

    10uF is more like it for 1kHz


    & this is with the Stereolab horns?

    what are you having to use to attenuate the S2 & tweeter? Wirewounds do slug the hf. I was quite shocked by traces I ran with & without L-Pad attenuation

    On the S2 - 9dB l-pad with Duelunds. Standard resistors on the tweeter. I'm deaf above 14kHz anyways

    edit-you'll just have to come and listen!

    edit2-Sterelabs as the Azuras won't fit... unfortunately. The Azuras do blend better.

    Is it the source impedance of the LPAD? Or just the inductance? Have you measured how inductive they are?

    I post this here as it parallel's my experience and provides a recipe for people wanting to build a horn system using modern drivers at a very reasonable cost. Also very well written with all the technical measurements.

    Hi JJ, very useful link. I put together some open baffles and at present run 15" woofers with a 130w rotel amp and 8" full range drivers with 2A3 mono's. At JVS ( jims ) bake off it was agreed that there was cone break up from the 8" drivers and adam ( amdismal ) suggested limiting the 8" drivers frequency range to give it less to do. I decided to cut it off at 3000hz and have been looking at compression drivers and horns to cover from 3000hz upwards. It looks like there is an affordable way forward with the BMS drivers and tractrix horns on the stereo labs site.

    Exploring options for 150Hz horns. Not many people make them. I'll update very slowly...

    No definitely plans yet. Still trying to find a 150Hz horn. Coco might have one spare
    But this will be a far in the future project as the room is too small. It will be a 4-way:

    tweeter
    S2 down to 1kHz
    9448 200-1kHz
    probly folded bass horn

    WTF - a cigar?!?! Jeez man, haven't you got something that is actually a practical way of illustrating scale - like a ruler?!? A CD?!?!? You're a doctor, for crying out loud!?!?

    Cool though

    Ok boss

    edit to add spiel from ebay...
    Here we have a rare pair of RCA MI-9448 permanent magnet theatre compression drivers. As I understand the RCA models, the 9448 was produced from immediately after World War II until approximately 1950 when it was replaced by the MI-9458. I do not know what the differences are between the 9448 and 9458; the examples I have seen of both feature the same diaphragm and drilled hole pepper pot phasing plug. These units, like the WWII-era drivers produced by RCA for the U.S. Navy, featured a larger, heavier magnet structure compared to the later 9458 series. In the mid or late 1950s the 9458 series debuted, and carried the RCA theatre systems through the 1970s in A, B and C versions.

    Hi Alan,

    JJ hasn't been seen on the Wam for quite a long time, his life took a different direction and he hasn't logged in for about 15 months.

    There are plenty of other posters with experience of building horn systems, if you start a specific thread I am sure you will some responses.
    There must be more to living
    Than a mortgage and a lawn to mow - Joni
