    Widget, I would love to see a "how-to" on this process. Can you provide some info on how you do this? I've been tempted to clone the 2342 Bi-Radial horns, as they are scarce, and awfully expensive when they do show up on eBay.

    would such a horn be better w my tad 2002 than the jbl 4341 horn that i currently have it hooked up to? i would need to place it on top, which could lead to many other problems though...

    It is dirty, gooey, and I wouldn't want a camera near it.

    Basically, I took an original and made a silicone mold of it using about $2K of industrial silicone, and then I take a urethane resin and pour it into the mold. Sounds simple doesn't it? To get usable results actually takes years of screwing around with this sort of thing. I've been doing it for over 2 decades. There are so many variables and nuances that I really don't want to bore you with.

    At that point you are designing an entirely new system. Unless you are prepared to go the whole way, I'd say stay with what is working for you.

    spawl- the 2002 horn is bit bigger than 7x10", in case you ever want to cut into that baffle, looks like it'll fit

    TAD 2251

    Hi,

    I have TAD 2251 speakers. I bought them today in fact.

    I used to have TAD 2402 until I sold them to Moscow last week.

    Heres a pic of both. Like the 2402's before (which I converted to 3 way active with TAD et-703 tweeter) I will make the 2251's active and add a Pioneer PT-R100 ribbon.

    Only got back with them this evening! Quite late so no chance to listen properly yet.

    Cheerio

    The wood look is very nice, and if its half as nice as the sound, they must be pretty fine. Congrats

    Tim,

    cheers

    I added the Pioneer PT-R100 Ribbons today...very nice and much larger than the 703's or r9's...and heavier!

    Have Shindo sinhonia's powering them above 10khz. Yamamoto 45 tubes powering below.

    The sound is fantastic. These speakers allow you to listen 'into' a piece of music and have maybe 75% of the 'being there' factor of the 2402's.

    People often miss out on the 'being there' factor. This is what BIG paper cone woofers bring...horn loading being the next step up in the bass obviously but then the horns are HUGE!

    I'd like them a bit higher to be honest...I don't like looking down into a soundfield. I am pretty tall

    Apparently the guy before me looked for them for 4 years. I looked for 2 years before I found my 2402's. The 2251's are just here until I get a pair of Rey Audio speakers or maybe 2404's later this year.

    7000 euros...massive bargain really. They still sell for almost this price used!

    I sold my 2402's with TAD 703 tweeters for 13600 euros, which just shows how sought after they still are.

    Don't rub it in!

    I am actually considering the construction of twin bass cabinets underneath the 2251's...housing TAD 1601c or JBL 1500AL like Merlin used. I could be waiting a long time to find a pair of TAD 2404.

    I don't have the room at the moment for REY Audio speakers.

    Good luck with the build..look really nice.
