    Need 800 series Altec driver info

    Has anyone seen or run any response plots on 800 series drivers with the 511 horn? I'm interested in the limits of the bottom end response. I have some aluminum 806A and sybiotik 807 drivers from my Valencias and VOTTs that I wanted to try with my Belle Klipsch as a mid horn with a 511. I'm aware that the Altec spec pages say that the frequency response of the drivers goes down to 500 hz. But does anyone think that I could realistically squeak 400 out of either horn driver combo or would they poop out at 500? (806/511 or 807/511). Alternatively, is there risk of driver damage if I try to push them that low? It would be used with passives and a 12 db slope. Thoughts are appreciated.

    Carl.
