Who makes the horn loaded sub with 8" driver?
« on: March 23, 2013, 11:44:38 pm »

Long time member, first time posting in quite a while...back when I frequented the forum (before we switched to the new format here, so maybe 2 years ago...?) there was a lot of talk about some new subs made by some guy in Chicago I believe...it was a fairly affordable horn loaded sub of some sort that used an 8" driver. Does anyone remember what they were called, and if they're still available out there somewhere? Or, if they aren't, were they surpassed by something better?

Thanks for helping me untangle the cobwebs...

Why do I need cymbal overheads? I'll just use SM58s on the vocals.

I remember some small subs, but with 12" drivers. 
The Danley TH28's kind of fit that description.  Great little sub.

The Danley THSPUD also fits the bill-but it is more of a home theater really low freq sub.

As with anything-it depends on the intended usage

I have a pair of Yorkville NX200S (10") that sound surprisingly good for their size/price.

http://www.yorkville.com/products.asp?id=172&cat=22&type=29

They won't 'chest pump' a rock show for 300 people but they work great for many venues, many times I used to only carry one of them for Jazz or acoustic music just to fill in the low end.  We use a single one at church and it covers a gymnasium for handling bass and keys (without stage amps).

I haven't done any serious measurements on them.

It could also be Jeff Permanian and his JTR Growler subwoofer-it actually uses a beefy 10" driver:

Nice compact sub at a great price point.

It uses a 12"-unless something has changed

Sorry, you're right of course, don't know what I was thinking.

Ah, the JTR Growler! That's what I was looking for, thanks! I'm a good ways out from really needing a sub, not to mention being able to afford one or justify the purchase, but I wanted to have it handy for future me. Thanks!

The difference between "wow" and "I'm just not that into you".
