wow Mark,  that is cool!  You obviously have mad woodworking skills

Is it practical for actual PA use ?  I would think there would be a ton of sub spill onto the stage ...

Most subs are omni to begin with.

Thanks Mal, I owe all my somewhat recently acquired woodworking skills to very helpful folks on the web, and a good track saw  :)
It's amazing how easy it is to make long true cuts, even compound miters/bevels with just a track saw.

Anyway...practical for PA?  Heck yea..
As David said, bass is omni...at least at 100Hz and below where I cross.

One cool thing about a bigger horn like this rig, even though it's only designed to go down to 100Hz, is how the upper-bass/lower-mid pattern control of the horn makes the sub sound like it comes out of the horn.
Much more so than you usually hear from a main on top a sub crossed at 100Hz. Ivan often talks about this ... the need for size for pattern control.

Makes me want to build an even bigger synergy...which I might do.
The outer secondary-flare on the horn detaches for transport....it's just a big picture frame really.
I think I could make a bigger horn and frame that would still be manageable by one person.

I recently picked up a pair of the new RCF TTS15-A subs. 80 lbs. and way easier to move around than the single 18" subs I replaced. Had padded covers and front dolly boards. Subs are definitely musical. Pair them up with any of the RCF TT top boxes. I'm picking up a pair of the new TTW4-A's when they're released shortly. Those showed well at LDI.

I'm a huge fan of the L'Acoustics Syva rig, but that's a $22k ticket to ride. Really a gorgeous system is every aspect, though.

How would the TTW4-as compare to dB IG4T? My guess rcf to sound warmer on a slightly heavier cab. Keep us posted when you get them up and running. What is pricing on the rcfs compared to dbtech ? Pm welcome.

No pricing out on the TTP/TTW 4 yet. I just heard the prototypes at LDI. It's been a while since I heard the IG4T, so tough to compare. The vocals just pop right out on this new TT+ gear. I have the TT20CXA monitors, as well, and I'm amazed at how good they sound.
