RE: Questions for Salectric and Lokie re P15LL

Yes, that's right. My 32 horns have always been mounted in the same cabinet as the woofer, similar to the Western Electric 753. I started with the 414 woofers in a 3.2 cu ft cabinet, and later replaced them with the 15" Jensen P15LL in the same cabinets. I eventually built new cabinets that were 5 cu ft thinking I would get deeper bass. Unfortunately the bigger cabinets just never sounded as good as the 3.2 cabinets. I am not sure why, but this could be due to other differences and not just the cabinet volume. In any event, the easy solution was to go back to the 3.2 cabinets which is still what I am using today.

While I have never tried the 32 horn outside the woofer cabinet, I did try an Emilar horn both inside and outside the woofer cabinet, and I thought it sounded better when mounted directly to the cabinet. The sound was more coherent, more like a single driver, than when the horn was on top of the woofer cabinet.
