I currently have the Eminence Delta Pro-8C (4ohm version) and want to know if there is a horn design I could go with. There is no budget limit or difficulty level.
What are the best options ?

Thanks !

The Delta Pro 8 is the recommended premium driver in my DR200. Being a pro-sound design a 31 band EQ is a must have.

Bill, you hit the nail right on the head and I thank you for it !

I already have the drivers and can start building right this moment. I plan on using (at least) 2 of these cabs for my HT.
The DR200 is a more complicated design, how does this compare to the Wedgehorn8 in output ?

The DR200 is intended for PA mains use, to a large audience at a distance of up to 100 feet. The W8 is a stage vocal wedge, intended for an 'audience' of one or two players at a distance of no more than 8 feet. It also highly accentuates the midrange for maximum intelligibility of vocals above the stage instrument levels.

so in a 20' x 20' foot room, should I just slap them in a sealed or ported box and be dine with it ? :)

That depends on how much you want to get out of them. I don't think MK's room is much larger than that, if at all, and when he had DR250s he was stacking them in pairs. :eek:

I have two DR200's for my mains in my HT. After reading MKTheater's experiences and impressions, I decided to go for it. They are great, though as Bill pointed out, they're not designed for home theater applications. So if you do build them, be prepared to do a fair amount of tweaking to get really good results. Also, the build process is fairly complex if you decide to build them yourself. Bang for buck though, if you're willing to put in the time and effort, I believe the DR200's are hard to beat for HT use.
