    I still think there'd be room to get a 2" compression driver/horn combo mounted into the cab (a la Westlake above) and have room for a tweeter in the hole provided. You should be able to mount a 2405 in the same hole as the 075 would mount into?

    Hello Jeff

    The alnico's certainly would fit. The H versions may not with the larger OD's. Driver drawings here:

    Hello Wardsweb

    If you are going to start cutting up the cabinets what are you going to do about the fretwork grills?? How much room do you have behind them?? Anything with depth beyond the standard lense may not fit behind them. You could certainly put quite a large horn up top.

    The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards putting a large horn on top and mounting the tweeter in the cab. It still keeps the look of the Olympus. I really like how rloggie's looked with that big westlakes sitting on top and the lattice grills in place.

    One step at a time. I'll get them refinished, add the tweeter and look for or build some horns. I have the vanes and mounting block I got from Bill Martinelli.

    Which now brings me to what driver. Because I'm not going original and don't want to pay collector prices for a 375, any recommendation? I was thinking 2441.

    Just wondering how this turned out, and what crossover/drivers you used?
