    What to do with 2435 and 2202H ?

    Hi !


    This is my first post here on Lansing H so i hope i'll do it right...

    I bought a pair of 2435 and 2202H for a small amount of money and now i hope you guys can help me to decide what to do with them...

    Is this a good idea ?
    2435 in a smith horn >950Hz
    2202 80-950
    ??? 20-80Hz

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum.
    My main speakers use 2245 woofers below 290, 2202H from 290 to 900, 2435HPL from 900 to about 15k and 2407H above that.
    The speakers are driven using a 6 channel active crossover, which is a good way to go for DIY.

    I can definetly recommend the setup. The 2245 is excellent.
    You can read a little more on the horn here:

    A smith horn could also work, but with the 2435 I like this better. These horns image real well.

    Cool !

    Very Nice setup John !

    A round horn ( just like yours ) would also be my first choice ( assuming one likes some front to back imaging / as well as side to side ) .

    Earl K: Do you have the spec for 2435's ?

    18" is a little to big for me, what do you guys think about using a 2203 below 80Hz ?

    Hi Guru

    Earl K: Do you have the spec for 2435's ?
    The specs are posted on this site ( look in the Transducer section at the bottom ) .

    ps ; the 2203 can be made to work as long as you use an electronic crossover to make up for it's lower sensitivety .

    Thanks for the spec

    My ideas right now are...

    1pcs 2435 >950Hz
    2pcs 2202H 120-950Hz ( 2 pcs to get the higher sensivity) Maybe there should be an higher xover point ?
    1pcs 2203H 30-120Hz with an electronic crossover

    I think you would be better off padding the 2435 down an additional 3dB rather than adding a second midbass driver.

    Very likely.

    If you have enough space the 2202 looks very good as a horn driver....

    That would leave you with a 2-way.

    Maybe an Edgar Horn should do it or do you have a suggestion ?
