I have said that the BA-750 won't perform any better than most 1" CD's on a small horn or waveguide. The BA will perform best on a deeper horn that can use it's lower end.
Here's an interesting combo using a BA-750 on a deeper horn with a 1" throat. No crossover applied. It's one of the flattest curves I've seen for a horn/CD before a crossover.
Wow, that baby is flat! What horn did you test that on, if you don't mind me asking?
As far as the BA-750 versus the BMS-4550, I can't recall exactly where I heard that the 750 is not better than 4550, but I remember reading it somewhere...perhaps on the DIYSG forum? Not sure exactly but I do remember someone saying they had either heard them both, or maybe it was some preliminary measurements that someone was referring to,....
I will say that I am highly interested in the BMS-4550 versus the BA-750. Like I said, I plan to use the 4550's with my Seos-15's when they come in, then sometime down the road when I have more spare cash, I will order a single Seos-18 to pair with my single Radian 951PB that will be used as the center channel with the 4550's on the Seos-15's being used as the Front Right and Front Left in my theater.
Is the BA-750 a 1" CD or a 1.4" CD? If it is a 1.4" CD and would fit in with the Seos-18 that I plan on using with my Radian 951PB, I would be willing to buy one of the BA-750's for direct comparisons with my Radian
951PB. That would certainly be fun! But if the BA-750 is only a 1" CD, isn't the Seos-15 the largest waveguide that it could fit on? Or is there a 1.4" to 1" adapter that could be used, and if so, would that deter the sound quality?
