Re: Best enclosure/driver for a metal-core bass drop
The horn has to be built to complement the driver characteristics. If I have in any way lead anyone to believe that I am suggesting that the titanic drivers simply be "dropped into" a pre-existing horn designed around typical pro-sound driver characteristics I am sorry. I did not intend any such thing.

I'd be happy to pit the 10" titanic against ANY similar priced 10-21" PA driver. Just name the driver and the box volume limit. The titanic is a viable option for the intended bandwidth and I stand by the suggestion. I also am happy to suggest and defend dozens of alternative ways to achieve the same ends. It will always come back to utilising the available box space in a way that best complements the driver in question, and matching the available amplification to driver thermal and Xmax limits wisely. I didn't pull a stupid idea out of thin air to stir up trouble here, I have spent a lot of time pondering and simulating alternative solutions to PA low frequency reinforcement.
