In reality, the response can wind up smoother than predicted. Though there haven't been that many (4 if I recall), my multi-driver builds with the drivers mounted along the horn's...

It's all good. Debate and discussion is fine.

The Alpine Type R 12 is a great tapped horn driver. Tighten up the throat end of the your horn a bit and the response will be a bit smoother. The...

As I've designed, built, and tested plenty of tapped horns already, as well as shared many of my efforts freely, I don't typically even respond to "challenges" like this. I can also assure you, the...

It is a link back to an earlier post in this thread, I most recently discussed drivers back in post 537.

How big's the opening? There are a few guys that reduced the internal width of the F-20 and had decently good results.

Getting any big bass horn into an attic in one piece will be a challenge.

The SA 10 looks like it has a bit too much motor and too tight of a suspension to work well in this cabinet, the response has about 10 dB of variation predicted.

Both seem to work.

I've got zero first hand experience with either.

The Alpine offers nearly the same xmax, more xmech, and similar power handling for less money.

Exactly. Double the cabinets/power = +6 dB.

If you've got the room, that's the route I'd recommend.

When it comes to smoothing out room modes, two sources is generally better than one.

Nothing at a watt, but the potential is there for a LOT more power handling. The Q is rated at 1500 W, and has 27 mm of xmax.
