    Agreed, it could have been a nice discussion methinks...

    As the gentleman from WA mentioned, I do also find value in the older papers...
    As did the folks behind Richard Long & Associates...
    you'll see influences from Olson, May, etc in their design philosophy...

    Basically, trying to get the most out of a limited resource...

    With this thread recently resurrected I thought it appropriate to post a PIC of the finished cab.

    Damn, now I have to build 2 new bass horns now, lol.

    Very nice build.

    How do they perform?

    They work surprisingly well. With a little EQ they reach reliably into the mid 30's, are very 'live' sounding. They definitely have that dance club 'wump' to them when pushed. I have been using them with JBL 2360 horns loaded with BMS 4590 coaxial CDs. The combination can be overwhelming.

    Frequency response is shown back in post #88 when I had the cabinet loaded with 18 inch JBL 2240 drivers. The drivers in the recent PIC are 15 inch TADs. The TADs are a little smoother and extend a little lower. These cabs are the size and weight of a refrigerator, but a whole lotta fun!

    Ya I can relate. I have my in my second story game room. Getting them upstairs was not fun. Those would probably end in a trip to the hospital, .

    I'm buying 2226's to put in mine. I'm currently running mine with a qsc gx7 running some parts express Dayton pro 15's in them in parallel. The tops are 2446's being driven by a jbl 6260. Its quite the experience. They can get up to 120dba at my chair. And it sounds quite nice at that volume too, but not for long if I do it too much. Don't need to kill the ears. I use a minidsp for the crossover at the moment. I'm working on a analog crossover at the moment to replace it. The minidsp is limited on its output voltage. Plus I'm still trying to get over the analog psychosis too.

    That bass wump is really addictive. I've honestly considered not even running a sub with mine high passed at 40hz too.
