Hi friends

I'm trying to save what Father Francis left behind when he went of to Nairobi, what are these?:



At first I thought it was XT8 horn, and got quite exited as I found a set of X-tro's to plug the horns into. Now it shows up that these horns are deeper! The phase plug is pointier than the XT8.

I collected 4 of these and two X-tro's, but they don't fit together:-( -I will have to mod the X-tro, one 8" horn had lost it's phaseplug.
What are these?

I picked these up and bought them to francis from the UK when we took our sound system over. The plugs were broken on some of them when I recieved them, but you would be better beefing up the plug mounting on all of them as it is far too fragile. They were built by Mykey and I think they were made before the XT8, they were sold by Jan Audio in the UK but this company has long gone. I think they were called M8.

THANK YOU!-) -I LIKE SPEAKERPLANS

So you suggest that i fit the plugs better? Yes one is broken off and there's no glasfibers in the "sticks" holding the plug. The backbowl screws are very rusty! -I have to cut them with an angle grinder!

Which driver fits this horn? The B&C 8pe21?

The bolts were also rusty already when I got them.

I can't remember how the plugs are held in but could you not cut the same support pattern out from steel or aluminium?

Your are best asking mykey which speaker he designed the horn for, the B&C 8pe21 is not unlikely though.

Ok, I will ask Mykey
Is this the horn called m8d?
Wonder if it's possible to obtain a pair of xt8-horns, could use them for my X-tro's, these are too long!
