The STX waveguide seems to be ok down to like 800hz, but that's as low as you can really run it. It's newer JBL tech so it should be solid, but I haven't gotten to measure off axis on it yet.
The 2384 is awesome, but it's also huge. The 2384 provides a good coverage pattern with smooth off axis response. If you can fit it, don't see any reason not to. The 2384 won't control the pattern down as low, but it seems fine to me so far using at with a steep 800hz xover. Sounds great, no complaints, but I am also using it in a treated room... At some point I'll get it out into a field and take some measurements, but no idea when that's gonna be.
If you're going to clone the 4722, no need to use a 265h-2, you might want to look at the 2265hpl. I used a single 2265g-1 just to keep impedance close to the 4722s bottoms I use for the L/R, but if you're using 2 15s, and of the H drivers in parallel should do. The 2265hpl is a better driver than the 265h-2 and easier to get a hold of. They're all good diff drive units, but if using only one, the 265h-2 can't handle as much power.
When I checked on the price/availability of the 265h-2, there was a big lead time, and the price didn't make sense. The 2265s should do just fine.
