I came across a deal of 8 EAW BH760. It's tempting.How do they stack up these days against modern 2x18"?
I owned Labsubs for a few years, they were pretty good in stacks of three and upwards.Really miss those subs.Can I expect similar performance?
Labs could be fitted easy with handles man.
Are you thinking about the ones that looked like a SB28?Those we're a great build
I actually found a drawing of the first pair of horns I built when I was 18 back at my parents house.Loaded with Zomax P1865 they we're fantastic at the time. Today my ears tell me that they sound decent but a bit "one-notey". I always liked the form factor on these, it's pretty close to a BH760.I've always wondered if a different driver could unlock some performance in these, they we're actually pretty easy and cheap to build. Sadly I guess the design is limited in it's potential.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
As with most/all horn designs the Keele W cabinet is pretty sensitive to the driver choice.And in most cases using a "better" driver will actually yield WORSE performance.The driver must be matched to the horn.In the case of the Keele design, it was designed for the JBL K151, a bass guitar speaker. If you put the "better" JBL PA driver in it, you got less output.In some cases the better drivers are simply "to strong" for proper horn loading.There is a bit of an "art" to horns. NOT just simply sticking a driver in it and hoping a better driver will work better.
Yes, that's why I never bothered trying a different driver.It would however been interesting to run this design trough Hornresp or similar to see what kind of driver actually fits in this horn and where it unloads..
