    As to BFM being 'Uber Class', DR280s and T60s:

    im not trying to be a ass to bill, cause I love his stuff. but give the Sean guy a break. its not like bill was the first to design folded horn subs either. any good folded horn sub design is gonna have similarities to BFM folded horn subs. after all how many different ways can a folded horn look? his are bigger and from what ive heard people say louder. bill made a thread about how he couldn't use 18s and I think most of sean's are 18s

    That's simply not true. My horns bear some similarities to previous designs, but that's it, similarities. In many ways they're unique, unlike anything that came before them. Some of his cabs are virtual copies of mine. Making them larger to fit in bigger drivers doesn't equal originality. It's called theft of intellectual property.
    I also did not say that I couldn't use eighteens. I said that I won't, because in a horn anything larger than a fifteen is unnecessary, if not counter-productive.
    He claimed that while they have built BFM designs in the past but all of their designs where that of their own & any similarities where just by chance since all horn designs are based off of the same fundamental design.
    Hogwash. There was no more chance involved in their resemblance to my T30 and THTLP than there is a game of three card monty. All horns are based off the same fundamental design only in that one end is larger than the other. Both the T30 and THTLP have a number of features that are without precedent. Those features were copied by Hennessey. At any rate, it's in the hands of my lawyers now.

    Gig went amazing! The six T45s absolutely rocked! You could even hear the metal ceiling tiles and rafters buzzing during set up

    Last fall I built some Omnitop12s. I like the Otop12 design, love the mid range frequencies, they're easily built, but you can hear comb filtering just bobbing your head, uneven high frequency volume throughout the room and it's just too bright in the highs even with EQ. {Yes they were all in phase and wired correctly per the plans}

    So I fixed it...







    I used a B&C DE250 1" compression driver with B&C ME15 horn. Sounds leagues better, no more comb filtering, constant volume everywhere. Was able to use the same structure. It still x/over at 2k hz but I would recommend lower if you go this route. You lose the "line-array" "capability" with this and I don't know how it compares to the BFM compression driver option, but that looks like a very hard build.
