Looking at the FR graph on Parts Express, it seems to be able to do 1Khz with little trouble. There is a huge peak where I assume the breakup occurs leading up to 2Khz, but if the FR is accurate it would seem to be a reasonable low priced option for A SEOS horn. The Le seems very high to me to be able to reach as high as it does in the FR graph. Any experience with this?

Thanks,

I have the SEOS 12 & 15 I've been toying with. So far I've tried a DT220 and the Dayton 250P (de250 clone). EQed the same I'm liking the D220 better. Seems more resolving...I like the top end "zing" when I listen. I'm tempted to try the Denovo 360, but really wonder if it is much better than the Dayton. The FR looks better on the 360 and my own measurements confirm a heavy roll off after 10k on the Dayton. Not sure I want to collect CDs, but it is fun to play around with them.

On axis, yes, but where your crossover point is concerned it's off-axis that matters. I'd want to see the 45 degree off-axis chart before deciding on how high to try and take it.

I did some measurements of the P380 and it confirmed what I feared about it...the Le kills the response over 500 Hz. The FR in the spec sheet is VERY optimistic...basically take the 1 Khz reading and move it down to 500 hz and you have the response. It is a nice woofer for the price if you can cross it over under 500 Hz in a 3 way design. I think I'm done looking for bargains, maybe a Delta Pro or a B&C 15NDL76.



One more side note, there has been some discussion of a 1" compression driver that will go down to 500-600 Hz...if one doesn't mind going 3 way, the Selenium 250-X is cheap, measures well on a Seos15, at least down to 750 and sound pretty good. Couple it with a cheaper super tweeter like the Eminence 150 and you got great response from 500-600 up. And much cheaper than some of the high ends CDs I've been seeing tossed around.



Edit: Nix any idea of the Eminence 150...very erratic FR on 3 different horns. The raw response of the 250-X does indeed roll of below 500 Hz. Now the hunt for a not so expensive horn to match the SEOS down to 500 Hz. Any ideas?
