yes,  2360 horns.  the driver is a JBL 2451J neo 1.4" compression driver with an adaptor which converts it into a 2" exit, 2450J.  The adaptor is made from turned birch and is made to the exact dimensions to match the 2450J flare rate.

I did explain this to them but they insisted it didn't matter as they were fk1 drivers so it "must" sound good!

we used to do systems for them with 21's and res 4's apparently they consider this to sound better, each to there own i suppose!

And here in lies the problem, I would imagine that lot outputs a lot more SPL than the FK boxes would with the same drivers in (face it they'll have used Fane driver, not FK ones as getting raw drivers out of FK1 is not easy for very obvious reasons), a total lack of control and phase coherence will certainly grab your ear more than a Res 4 will...
 
This has overtures of me quoting to put 60Kw of TMS-3/18/21s in for a party becuase a called Stacey tuff had done the last gig with 45KW (all home made that he manged to get into a single transit!!) and it wasn't enough!!!!
When I explained I would need 30' in either an artic or a 20 tonne truck to get 60KW to the gig a few home truths started to settle...
 
No one at FK knows any where near as much about top end PA as you average promotor does, I just wish all these audio genius' had time in their busy schedule to pop over the the farm and give John and Tony a few pointers as they are obviously overcomplicating things and need some guidance!!

Out of interest what is the bass cab and what would it have been loaded with?
Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

I was talking to an engineer I know and he chewed me out over wanting to build a system out of old stuff like the EAW BH882 and JBL 2395. I like it but apparently it's not good stuff.

I wonder what people think about this question today ! Smile
