RE: Help Needed Selecting The Right Hi-Efficiency Subwoofer

Hi Retsel,

I'm using Lowther DX4 drivers in my Beauhorn Virtuoso cabinets. I may be mistaken but I read somewhere that the front horn of the Virtuoso covers frequencies from 300 Hz and above. I feel the back horn covers sufficiently down to at least 50 Hz at all times and sometimes it seems lower. I used to use Sachiko back loaded horns and having heard Paul's Hedlund horns many times at his home, I know:

1) The Sachikos were the better sounding of the two designs.

2) I prefer the Beauhorn over the Sachikos.

As far as the horns I'll use as subs, obviously the lower the better, but that being said, 30 Hz to 90 Hz would probably be sufficient for my needs 95% of the time. I want to get these subs right the very first time, so I'm NOT rushing into anything. So far I 'm leaning towards using a pair of tapped horns, with a couple of great plate amps...

I'm listening to: Make Someone Happy by Sophie Milman
