Listening to my new horn based system: DHT 45’s driving 118dB mid/hi coaxial horns on top. FM Acoustics driving bass horns below 619Hz. Nice!

Thank you. I am unfamiliar with the equipment you listed except for the FM300A. I auditioned the FM 300A on my Acoustat 2+2 35 yeras ago.

What drivers in the horns, and what amps?

Cheaper to apply some anti-histamine cream.

Playing around with some new Christmas toys on my big horn system tonight. Added a pair of massive super-tweeters crossed over at 15 KHz and the mighty Viva Audio Aurora T monoblocks to my reference horn system.
