  1. I felt compelled to reply here. Not only is there no science that proves that cables make a difference, there is sufficient evidence that proves that there is no difference. I am not a scientist but you don't have to be a formula 1 engineer to understand the literature. As soon as a company sells expensive cables or anything crazy expensive even speakers after the point of diminishing return you know its snake oil or that the company doesn't care for you and is simply just after money. Steer clear. You can get state of the art DAC's from Chinese brands for $100, the Chinese are making the drivers for the Europeans and the Americans and easily beat them on price and quality, of course they still have some way to go but my point is that don't be fooled by audiofoolery. Keep fighting the strong marketing techniques that fool us everyday,
  2. No, this is great thanks for your input. I am aware of measuring off axis gives you the frequency curve compared to on axis to see at what degrees you've lost a decent response(although still in the learning stage) so thanks for explanation. I just wasn't aware it was referred to as the horn being loaded enough. Your measurements are great I can study them and learn a lot, but i'll be back with questions. But we are just using REW right? And the spectograms on it? My horn is a clone of the QCS 152. Regarding protection of the tweeters, so obviously the lower its cut off the more likely it is to be damaged. I am using a 20UF cap what else do I have to do? Just not play it to loud. I will be using a active crossover 24db so wouldn't that protect it somewhat as well?
  3. Deltalite 2515 The terminology loaded enough I am still struggling with. The Horn is rated down to 600hz but from the Econowave thread on Techtalk and Audiokarma it can reach to about 1000hz but below that is pushing it. So will see. Is there any way of figuring out if its loaded enough?
  4. Well, the B52 PHRN 1014 horn seems like the best option for the DE250, perhaps there is better but i've already CNCed the front baffle. Plus it was a few bob.
  5. Thanks very much for your help buddy. I was in a dilemma and still think that perhaps there is a large gap between my 15 inch and 1 inch compression driver but if you think the DE250 will play down that low, great I will experiment and see how it goes. I not sure how much the 15 inch at its higher frequencies, (over 800) will affect its directivity pattern and of course it's smooth transition to the compression driver if crossed over at 1200hz or around 1300hz. I am going active as well, I have a DBX 234 which probably isn't the best SQ, I do hear some noise but sound degradation is little although it is there. I also have Marchand XM66 which is transparent enough, but a 2 way., I want to add subs. Both are 24db octave crossovers. I will tie this all in with Audiolense software DSP which will also time align. Ultimately, I will use a UDIO-8 to feed separate DACS and tri amp using digital filters for crossovers which will probably provide most control over crossover functions and overall versatility.
  6. Is this active or passive crossover? I have the B52 PHRN 1014 which is a clone of the QSC 152. I am really curious how the DE250 sounds that low? I didn't think a 1 inch compression driver will do well under 1600hz?
  7. When you say Dayton horns you mean the B52 PHRN 1014? Cause that's what I got with the DE250... What your lowest crossover point with the DE250?
  8. So which horn and which compression driver did you end up chosing?
