I've done some searching across a couple of forums and feel a little unsatisfied with what I've found. Basicly, from what I've read, I have a general understanding of horns and just would like a little confirmation of what I know and a couple questions answered.
I've seen that horns require an eq, about 13band minimum, the more the merrier. Can a 13 band hu-eq be used for this sort of application or would another external eq be required?
I've also had a glance at a post or two saying cross-overs are needed, some 500, some 800, depening on the horn. Would passive cross-overs that come with comp sets be enough for this?
These just plug into passive eq's where the comps would go, right?
I got two options that I could potentially wire them up with. One, I could put them on 50w (but that's at 4 ohm so at 8 ohm it should be about half of that) each with a hpf set to whatever the crossover would be set to. Two, I can put them on the passive comp x-over and let it handle the frequencies but the horn would only get 25w and the mid-driver would only get 25w. I need them to keep up with a vented xxx-15 (or 12 if I can't find a decent price used) at factory spec, 27-28hz.
I've seen install pictures but they just show the body. Can anyone take some pictures of how they actually MOUNTED the horn in their car? How to you get it to stay, basicly?
Finally, I have read that horns are failry easy to set up, image beautifully, and set the stage almost by themselves. Is there anything else that should be known about them?
