According to posts Ive seen around here,they seem to have a reputation for 60hz kick,perhaps useful for house djs. Youl notice that here people prefer wsx,labhorns, and the like.Or even CV horns with upgraded drivers.

You also see posts around,where theyve used a Budget 350w 4mm Xmax driver.
Depends how much you have to pay for them.

Listen to it first with familiar music

700 quid seems steep when you think about what you can get from some diy builds

Must be originals with original drivers.

I would think real soon, ply copies will be worth more than originals.

We really need to bench test ply copy loaded with V18-1000/PD186.

if the original driver is only ~350w RMS and you install a v18 1000 You wont need that so muchLOL

I think the distorted sound is a continuation of home hifi chipboard boom?

Heres one I drew up, with slight mods.. moved the access panel round to the top as I never liked the idea of removable front flare sections. I doubled up the top panel and access panel to brace it up as I can't put bracing between baffle and top panel. This makes the entire thing about a cm deeper and 2 longer, negligible but might get you an extra 0.5 Hz in a stack of 8...hehe

I'm thinking of building a couple for an install that doesn't need a lot of low end to see how they go, simple enough build and have noted that the various boxes with this kind of layout all seem to do the job nicely.. the Selenium, Some of the ASS designs etc.

That is a superb drawing.

The front chamber looks nice and large, and I'm sure that cab has 6ft horn.

So get the throat right, and that baby should do approx 45hz with V18-1000/186.
