My Omnitop 12s as depicted on the first page of this thread are now up for sale.

Looking for £550 for all 4, simply to help cover the cost of having a pair of OT15s built (priorities change so my PA needs to).

PM if interested, a member of BFM site already has first refusal.

Hi Stu, can these perform well above some ES18'S and Hogs? I need to build some simple but adequate tops.

The shape of the omnitop 212 is just a variation on a very basic 2x12 horn that has been used for a long time. The thing that is really something unique is the melded tweeter array.

I'm considering buying the plans for the omnitops, but I'm wondering whether anyone knows of a cheaper driver that will work instead of the rather expensive deltalites?

Hi I build my omni tops with the Beta 12 driver. They might not have the output of the more expensive drivers but 2 a side will hit 127db with 200w rms per driver.

hope this helps

The least expensive recommended driver is the Eminence Beta 12. A high
performance alternative is the Delta Pro 12. For lighter weight, albeit at a cost, use
a neo magnet driver, such as the Eminence Basslite 2012, Deltalite II 2512 and
Kappalite 3012HO.
