That's out of my price range for sure... who is that horn marketed to? I would never spend that kind of money on a horn flare as a DIY sound system guy. I would rather build something my self.

In other news B&C have released their new gigantic horn for the DCX464, no idea how much it costs but its plastic and its b&c so I can only assume its less than 1000 pounds.

The B&C ME464 costs roughly the same as the DCX464, so that is not a cheap one either.

Huge horn, huge price...

Mind you, £950 for the horn is only the same as the driver -- so I don't know where this "half the price of the BMS" came from...

Thanks to everyone for posting. 
Seems folks are unsure either because of the price, or, the fact no one has heard this driver. 
I am still intrigued to know whether the performance of the celestion justifies the high cost over the BMS. Hunt is on to try and find one to hear!

Out of curiosity is there any reason you are not considering the DCX464?

I've got one of the large horns so im interested in the driver it was designed for. As i am using the 4590 on this horn i'd like to know how the celestion would compare. The b&c looks fine but i want to learn about one particular option rather than any alternative option.
