Hi,
this is my 1st post. I have 2 817a boxes loaded with 4 8 ohm 515's and 2 8 ohm 902's for hf drivers
my question is what do i do for Horns. All I have is 511's and I don't think they are right.
also
;) I was thinking of using a 1285 crossover.

what do you think? thank rc

The 511 horns would be perfectly fine. The 1285 crossover has switchable frequency and was designed for general PA use, and I've heard it said that it is less refined in any one application than crossovers dedicated to a certain frequency, but I couldn't say from my own personal experience. But it'll do to begin with.

Would these be for general PA use or something else...:hmm:

Going to the MR94 or MR64 's would be cool...:thmbsup:
but also require the larger format drivers....


but there are other horns depending on your application


Vintage sound large format 2 or 3 way for hifi...:dancin:
