I saw these in a venue last week but didnt have the opportunity to hear them cause the guys who rent them ware packing.
Have to admit that it's a very small box for 2 12'' in horn loaded configuration + 1.4''.Very light cab.
I think there were some posts here about them.My question is if there is made any research on the 12'' behind the comp.The second 12'' has a phase plug which seems very nice but has the  above driver the same response and dispersion as the other?
Is the horn working as a phase plug for the 12''?And if yes, isnt there a difference between them in the critical 500hz-1.2khz region?
I wonder if the manufacturer has applied some kind of magic to get them both sound the same without having any odd results in the upper response of the 12'''s.Or maybe just sacrifice some
fidelity for the sake of room and smallest box?
Small details one might think but i'd like to know people's thoughts.
Also the 60x40 dispersion refers only to the hi horn?What about the mids?

first thing is, this box is far away from beeing fully horndloaded. the 12" have about 6 db rising response from their recommended high pass to 250 Hz. thats why they are so small and light.
The 1/4 wavelength of 1000Hz , which might be about the x over to the comp, is 8,5 cm.
so the small differences between the dedicated phaseplug and the one builded around the HF Horn are not really relevant in their operating range.

I´ve heard these (along with the B30 2 x 15" bass cab) and they´re definitely very nice. But then again, so is the price tag.  Ouch

Yes horns are very short indeed
