While I was thoroughly enjoying myself over at the "way off topic" forum, I asked an old forum aquaintance (Maron - whom I was having a minor disagreement with at the moment) what his preference was for the horn to attach to a 2425. I have tested a 2345 and it measured OK, but my ear liked the sound much better when I was about 5 feet beyond where I would be listening to the speaker in my room. My way of stating the problem with the horn was the throw was too long. So finally we have come to my question:
Since medium to long throw is probably wrong for the environment, what do you folks consider your favorite short to medium throw horns that can comfortably be used down to 800 hz or even as low as 400 - 500hz with a compression driver? Please do not limit it to the 1 inchers (althought that best fits my current) but feel free to wander - just the discussion alone should be very educational.
The woodsmith is a darn attractive alternative and the 2344 "Plumber's" cheeks would be the least attractive solution (visually), but your impression of sound and driver combination is what I most want to hear.
