Thanks in advance.
At and below 25hz, the OS will have FAR more output. For one, the OS has a lower tune (25hz compared to 28hz), and second, the OS driver has almost double the xmax.
However, from 30hz and up I think the Othorn has some things in its favor:
1. Cabinet volume, when measuring from outside dimensions only, is a tiny bit larger.
2. Tune is slightly higher.
3. From what I've heard, considering all things are equal (which of course these are most certainly not), volume for volume, tune for tune, all being exactly the same, a tapped horn should have a slight edge in SPL above tuning compared to a folded/front loaded horn.
4. The B&C driver PROBABLY has more sensitivity, but that's pure speculation.
Again, since we don't have the test data on the JTR that we have on the Othorn, take this with a grain of salt.
