Just got in some SI 12BX subs, long horn/small mouth design it
appears. Stated range is 40-250 hz., but probably down 10db at 40.

They made 10, 12, and 15" versions.

They appear to be W horns. Without seeing data that isn't shown on their website that's about all I can say, other than 101dB sensitivity isn't exactly impressive.

Thanks Bill, yes, was hoping to find internal views or plans, but
cannot yet. They are very compact, so I don't expect much from them.

Will pop the cover off later and take a look.

I bet when you pull the cover off they'll look like the JBL Keele W horn. It's been copied by dozens of companies.
