from Tired of blowing HF'sI bought these to put in my 4x10 and 8x10 bass cabs. I rent backline and the new basses with their 18 volt pre-amps are quite brutal on HF. I had popped fuses, fried L-pads and blown HF drivers coming back in from rentals. I put these in the cabs and used an Eminence 2002S-8 driver to boost HF output from the cabinets. I went in and put 100 watt L-pads and the HF output is VERY present. I knew I'd need the additional L-pad capacity because the attenuator would be turned down further than before. I was correct. HF hiss is more pronounced at idle, but there is no lack of HF anymore.The horn looks very good in place of the factory horns andthe dispersion is fine on medium size & larger stages.You will have to modify the horn lens or the box itself to get this into the factory enclosure. I chose to remove about 1/4" from the horn lens's reinforcing ribs. all the cabs I have are carpeted so they seal well.Now if I can just figure out how to keep players from plugging their active basses into the passive "in" on the amp............................hmmmmmm.

from Best sounding hornI have two other pairs of horns that don't sound as open and clear as these with my drivers.I was not even hoping they would sound better, I thought they would just look better for my application. I was suprised they sounded the best.

from Good SoundExcellent sounding horn. It's 60x60, but I'd like it a bit wider, something like 90x90 would rule.....
