This horn is made to order. Please contact me prior to ordering to confirm build lead time. 

Horn No.1978 represents a sweet spot in terms of size, providing extension down to 600Hz and yet still maintaining acceptably wide horizontal off-axis coverage in the upper treble. This allows the horn to be used successfully in 2-way application with low frequency drivers ranging from 8" to 15". The picture shown above is with a 10" driver.  The horn measures 416mm wide (16.40") which fits nicely with bass cabinets as small as 400mm wide. This latest version of the ES-600 Biradial has the following changes compared to when I originally introduced the horn four years ago. 

Changes

  • Includes removable throat adapter for either 1" or 1.4" throat drivers
    • Special 3D printed adapter is printed as a solid (no hollow fill)
    • Remains dense and inert compared to regular 3D printing 
    • Holds drivers weighing up to 20lbs. 
  • Viablue UFO rubber isolation feet x3 (pocketed into bottom of horn) 
  • Brushed copper circular decal logo 
  • Throat bump to eliminate small resonance near the cutoff frequency (600Hz) 
  • New tappered appearance 
  • Built-in rear extension for super tweeter (top and bottom) 
  • The original design 3D CAD file can be found here
  • The latest 3D CAD file can be found here. (slightly older version 1965, will be updated to 1978 soon!)

Continuing from previous revision the also features:

  • Price is for one pair of horns
  • ES (Exponential Spiral) flare geometry 
  • Wrap-around horn mouth 
  • Precision CNC cut 
  • Solid kiln dried walnut construction 
  • Sanded and finish stained with Rubio Monocoat
