    I noticed in one of your pics you were sitting the 2397 atop the enclosure.

    This is common practice with audio amateurs.

    Itís not a valid comparison.
    The adjacent surface area of the Westlake horn in question is much smaller than the 2397.

    That combo works from own experience. Itís quite listenable. But l found it a double edge sword as the wider 2123 dispersion bounced off the 2397 lip causing a blurred sound (echo) on some program...

    Your taking the comments too literally.

    You are progressing but donít get bogged down on one approach.
    Donít try and pre conceive the design as perfect on paper. It wonít be.

    If you are proposing to continue with the Heil l suggest you email Nelson Pass at Passlabs on how best to set up the Heil. He previously worked in the R&D department at ESS when they introduced the...

    I agree with Barryís comments on the 2397 application. You might try another horn as discussed much earlier in this thread. What l previously did was test and compare by ear 3 different horns.

    That is surprising for this Smith horn and 2440 compression driver.

    A lot of what you refer to in your comparison comes down to the recording and placement of your enclosures and the listening point also toe in.
