    Right. As you drive forward, they roll back and raise the front end. Makes oil changes a breeze.

    Seriously, I'd love a pair of DD6x000 speakers. Just not in the cards & that's OK. May do the older...

    Yes, we all have DD67000s. I use them as height channels for my atmos system, with them bolted to the rafters of the man cavern below my McMansion.

    Personally, I'd stay away from most silicone adhesives near wire/metal as it typically releases acid while curing.

    good point about the eq curve required for these (or any constant directivity horn)... there were horn-specific cards for the smaller FFBREQ (flat front) horns such as the 2380 and the larger CCBREQ...

    I know it ran on Win 7 (Parallels VM on a mac) when I setup some 366T units for TiDome. Used a keyspan style usb-serial converter.

    (since it was mentioned) If it helps anyone, I seem to recall using London Architect to configure the 366T via it's serial port (yet another anachronism and set of rabbit holes).

    yes. looks like microphone cable for permanent installs. 20ga, so perhaps intended for longer runs. I have a small spool of that somewhere. Handy to have around.

    Ever visit the "Forevertron" in Wisconsin? One can argue whether the multicell horns were put to good use or it was just tragic, but I counted quite a few there.

    Xmax of .3" at 20Hz (also it's resonant frequency) will be pretty easy to hit in free air and it won't be loud to warn you.

    3152A? maybe... depends on what you're crossing over to. I'd look for systems that include the 4648 family as its bass component.
