I'm building 2 186 horns with pd186 drivers, will upgrade to 4 in the future.

Thinking of powering them with a iNuke 6000 but just noticed the only crossover option is 100hz LP. Noticed on the 186 plan that it sounds good up to 200hz so was just wondering what people would recommend having the crossover set to and if 100hz will be high enough.

200hz sounds a little high. Do you not have a cheap analog crossover you can sit with and have a play with the dial?
The internet telling you 200 is ok and PLAYING 200 are two different things... use your ears. If it starts to sound honky or stuffy that high up just back down on the dial til YOU like the sound!

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

just listen to yourself, can differ per speaker I think
