    You havn´t considered serching for a 1500Sub or W1500H to fill upp the space below those 2226 instead of going 18"?

    2245 woofers are easier to get and I already had one.

    Hey guys, this is a response to the topic of 2360 horns in Ohio.

    Just wanted to let you know that Eric at DIY Sound Group no longer has any. I was just there Saturday evening to pick up the last 3 and plan on using 2 of them which means I have one extra if anyone is interested.

    Congrats on your new acquisitions. I'd recommend to keep that third one as a spare.

    Spare? When you figure out what the failure mode of a 2360 is do let me know.
    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.

    Lol, you'd think, huh. I have an earlyish one that has a
    hole in the front surface... apparently a large bubble between
    the glass back and resin front allowed it to be pushed in... (Doh).

    Don't they also crack at the flange?

    I think that the second generation of 2360 horns that was done by injection molding fixed many production problems.

    I could envision that happening where it bolts to the throat, but you'd have to hit it pretty hard (or with a lot of leverage). The newer (3rd gen?) 2pc/split version (not counting throat) is supposed to hold the pattern better (and be -much- easier to ship.

    While typing this, I am facing the 2360 horns. I have that vision of two big elephant butts that I can't get rid of... That or, Dolly Parton's Greatest Tits...

    I see your point. I just figured there is a reason you don´t see two way hifi systems based on an 18" very often. I think the 2226 will sound better together with the 2360 thats all. Just my thoughts, no experience with 18" what so ever

    Actually, if I use the 2245 as a sub only for the 20 to 40Hz range, it is because it sounds muddy for any frequency above 150Hz in my opinion. Nonetheless I still want to experiment later by replacing the two 15" 2226 by two 18" 2242 which I feel can reach 400Hz wit a bit of equalization to tame down anything above 100Hz. My goal is to test a two-way system based on an 18" 2242 and 2360 horn and see if I can do without an auxiliary sub.

    Everything has a failure mode, the unknown is the force value!

    I agree with this - the flange introduces a terrible load path into the horn flare. However, this could be remedied with simple ribs that connect the flange to the actual horn geometry.

    In regard of the multi-piece plastic 2360B. I definitely have to find a set ;-)
