I have 4x F2B’s I’ve had refurbished to an immaculate condition that I am going to let go off, sadly.

I am very impressed with their sound for such low powered drivers.

A little update.  First pair of Othorn's are complete and had their debut last Friday.  A second pair of 21sw152's have been ordered.  Friday we ran the Othorns under 4 of my RCF4Pro4001 tops. I have the luxury of leaving the gear set up in our studio which has been a blessing. It took me and a buddy about 3 nights of learning how to use REW to get the time and phase alignment figured out properly.  Music was more bass oriented so I left the Martin 115's out of the mix for this one.  Initial impressions are very positive, the tone out of the Othorn's are unlike anything I've personally heard. Very deep, clean and precise. I kept using the word subterranean to describe the sound.  Our studio has a professional dance sprung raised dance floor that I find muddies the bass a bit with its natural reverberation with my front loaded RCF subs.  With the Othorn's this wasn't the case, the bass felt tight and clean and very intelligible.  On really low frequencies you could feel the floor flex like waves on the ocean under foot... really cool feeling.   Our main act played some 120-130ish Bpm techno/bass hybrid stuff that I find is difficult to reproduce faithfully unless the system is really tight... A recent mix of his for example


The Othorn's did admirably, lots of subtle detail and melodies in the bass frequencies were well defined with impressive impact, it was all smiles on the dancefloor

I now need to convince some mates to help me load the 115's upstairs into the studio (spiral staircase lol)  Our next event is in a couple weeks so will be spending some weeknight getting it all dialed in, will update.  Thanks again for all the help in this thread.

Yeah man, what a sound out of those things!  We have nothing but front loaded singles and doubles in this city so to hear something so clean and free of distortion is a real treat.  And thanks to Toastyghost for some of the links and info shared around time and phase alignment.  Thankfully I can leave my gear set up, took me and a buddy a few long nights of figuring out REW to get things dialed in, but when we did things sounded crisp!

No problem, glad it was worth the effort! So long as you did it with the grilles lined up on the same plane you shouldn’t need to revisit it unless you separate the tops and subs in future

Hey we just bought 6 Martin Audio Bin 2x15" version -

we want to reload them with a modern driver.

Which one to choose

Oberton 15B450

18sound 15W700 15W750

B&C 15

we want to use them from  60 to 250hz

under 60 there will be this new  thomann 2x12 Hornbassbins

Above we think of Martin Rasierer or this 1x12 Hornloaded BR

or this EV 1x15 horn with BR n the edges i dont know the name right now.

abouve that  2" perhaps BMS 4590 or old Beyma CP800 or JBL 2246 on 2" EV Horn  with 2" Lenses -

abouve that  6x Beyma CP22 or CP21 as an array 

All the thop boxes in 85cm wide  to fit each other and the Martin Bins.

Drive perhaps Analog with BSS or this old school JBL or other Crossovers.

Amps perhaps  a bunch of these ramsa or thomann TSA 4 1300  perhaps with DCX .

thanks for help

Probably best to start a new thread, or maybe ask the mods to split your message off and do it for you.

What Martin 215 bins do you have? There were several different types.

The razor midrange box is usually known as a "Philishave" although the official name was originally MH212, later versions were M600. The early single driver version, commonly called a "Ladyshave" was the MH112 and the later type was the M300.
