That was my first though also, but time being limited I couldn't get it right.
Now I am really hoping to have some time for the mid/high's. 
At the moment the "to-do-list" is VEEEEERRRRRYYY long LOL

Getting some training at time and phase alignment is on of them! This goal of the project is to have a nice sounding system, and I am also confident that can be doable. Ofcourse I have to learn lots of things, but that is never a bad thing!

Finally did some testing today! 

Music quality was not the best, but good enough for some impressions. I have to say I'm not satisfied yet, it was clearly missing something. 
My guess wood be the bad music quality and not a good summation at the crossover point with the B1520's.

Tops: Behringer B1520 (at the moment I don't have any mid/highs ;D)
Amps: 2X DAP TAS 2400 (one for each TH-18) and a different amp for the B1520 which I don't recall..
processing: Xilica XP3060

Music was just from my phone... so not the best.
Next time I'm hoping to get the mid/highs ready, and to do some measurements with SMAART.

Actually i meant 2385, huge mistake on my part.
2230 is 90*50, 2385 and 2236 are both 60*40

@Teunos

Thanks for the reply! Both the 2236 and JBl 2380 are to wide for my application.


If the 2230 won't do the job, I will look further for a pair of 4594 (and I know they are hard to find LOL)

I dont have any experience with the 2230.
I do however with the 2236, its larger 60x40 brother.

If you need the extension, there isnt really anything out there that can offer it at an affordable price.
(Big) 2'' CD horns are very rare in make, and probably one of the reasons why the PM90 uses the 1.4'' version instead of the 4592 (which is considerably cheaper).

Sound quality wise i would say the JBL 2380 i have sound a bit better, but they cant do what the 2236 can do down low. Saying that, i traded the 2236 for 2380 a while after i purchased the 2236 along with the BMS 4590 (since i didnt need the extreme extension the 2236 offer (down to 450), i cross the 4590 at ~800) , so if you want 2236 at a good price, i have a pair which is gathering dust.

Does anybody have experience with the BMS 2230 horn? someone offered me a pair of BMS 4592 drivers.
They would do the job for the PM90 but there aren't many suitable horns.

The 2230 can be used down to 700 Hz, so it would be on the edge..
