 A huge thanks to Rog for this very sweet sounding horn.
 It took a bit of effort, but the reward is a very sweet and punchy sound. I love these bass horns, i'm running 4 of them loaded with RCFl18p300 1k variants. Only running about 400w into each one off a crown XLS802 amp ( grossly underpowered but more than adequate for the room), low pass at 45 hz. and high pass at 125hz crossing over to a couple of jbl EONs. and the sound is very pleasant and reasonably deep.
 I dj in a local pub which ive permanenlty put the system into.
Here are some random build pics.. Im working on the MT102s to complement them next.. already have 4 x RCF L10P750YK drivers and 2 beyma CP800ti Comps.. i couldnt get the beyma flares so i found some H6040 Rcf flares. hopefully they are close enough to the beyma flares that Rog specified.
Thanks Rog.

Hope that's the other way round... i.e. HP @ 45Hz and LP @ 125Hz

Tidy looking build tho, nice job m8.

Very nice build and joining. And quality driver used.

Just the finish sucks, makes them look cheap and scuffs up easy, picks up dirt easy[lots of vacuuming needed] and beer smells.
And the plastic corners look cheap.

You should have gone for Aldcroft or simular paint finish.

thats a load of sh*t.....
Aldcrofts is over-rated and over priced.
Ive painted some cabs in it a while back, and it lasted like two gigs.......Put a cab in a van, slide it across the floor and its f**ked.
 
I much prefer carpet myself (its just a shame that they do pick up beer smells....)....
 
 
 
good job on the cabs anyway Nick...Tidy job i thought :)
