HI,  what do you think about Limmer 308?
could it  be a good solution for top   mid high application?
which drivers I could use in this horn?

any suggest?

or it will be better to choose  the porn horn

thanksSmile

I love the look of the Limmer range

I believe Dom on these forums uses or used a Limmer horn with a Porn MK1 and seem to remember good comments about the sound

I do still use the Limmer 308/Mk1 Porn Horn combo...
 
I think it's a nice combination.  As for drivers you need to use the Ciare 6.38MR3, as the horn and phase plug are designed for it.  You could use any 1" but you'd need a good reason not to use the B&C DE250....

First of all: I don't think that the Limmer 308 and the Pornhorn are compareable.
The Limmer has got a wider spread and isn't much bigger than a Nexo PS15.
The recommended drivers (a good designed passive crossover plan is available) are B&C 12PE32 and DE700.
I chose the 18Sound NSD 1480, imho the better HF driver with an active crossover.
But the Pornhorn has got much more lowend than the limmer, a result of the long midhorn...

the one that has been tried is the 042, from what I can read , i think he wants to know if the 308 could also work , maybe it´s just the top end he needs.

all the prices are on the speakerstore.nl page in euros. you get what you pay for

my experience of the 042 is overwhelmingly positive, got them for about £300 each including drivers, about the same as a decent 1.4" plus horn but dropping much lower.

Oh i was looking at these limmers yesterday,
Does any one have the 308?


Posted By: unknown_artist

I compared measurements of the 1460Nd and the 1480NSD. The 1460NSD hasn't got enough sensivity in the top-end -> needs more equalization.
The 1460Nd should work fine on the 308 flare, because it's nearly the same. Only the magnet is less powerfull.

problem with pornhorn is the paudio midbass driver that isn't avaible anymore, or hard to find at least.
limmer P3 look good on paper, but haven't heard one yet.

without counting drivers the prices are
Limmer 308-€513
Porn Horn Mk2 -€483
so depending on where you are and if you can get the drivers , shouldn´t be much of
a biggi.
I know where to get the P audio the price is just not good , anyway I want the six he has,Embarrassed

Are these limmer horns still available?

The speakerstore website does not show them anymore..
http://www.speakerstore.nl/products" rel="nofollow - http://www.speakerstore.nl/products  

Will the prices still be the same if they are available?
