Which Oris (Oris Horns)

Hi everyone. New to the forum.

Hello Hifido! Welcome!:bey:

I am looking to join the oris horn club. The problem I have is the size of my listening room 12ftx12ft. I think I would like to use the 250 horn as this has a smaller dimention than the others.

You can use 250 or 150; with 250 you will get some wider sweetspot, but you have to tune bass a litle higher than with 150 horn.

Does anyone have any thoughts which would be the best bass cabinet for use in my space?

I would go with BD-Design Compact Bass - a little big but all the wories about which bass are gone...:wink:

Also driver selection for bass? for horn. compression or fostex, lowther, etc?

If your budget is limited than (for the start) go with some Fostex...

This will be my first horn system.(so I would like cost to be under control) I am a fine furniture maker so any woodwork is not a problem. Also these horns are to run with type 45 mono-block amplifiers.

With DIY you can save a lot of money. If you will get horns you can make bass enclosures "in house" - I'm shure the plans are somewhere out there...:cool:

look forward to replies.
