    For those who have one, like myself, do you ever get a nasty tone from the horn?

    I have turned mine completely down. I'm sure with some tweaking I can get it right.

    yes! That's it exactly!
     
  4. Never had that problem. That cab rules. Well the only thing thats better IMO is the Epifani stuff.
    Are you sure its the horn and not the amp?
    I use a Goliath III w/ an SM900 pretty much running flat.

    I also use a SM-900 with 2 Goliath IIIs. One of the horns barely on is about as much as I can stand. But it doesn't make a bad sound, just very bright.

    Sounds to me like your tweeter's diaphram is getting a little fatigued(read burnt). You probably need to replace the diaphram. Depending on how hot you set your tweeter attenuator and how much treble you add, you can certainly burn those diaphrams.

    Call SWR at 818-253-4797 to purchase a new one.

    I'm sure glad the SWR guy is onboard with us here.

    My beadroom amp is an SWR and I love it.

    By the way, I'd be glad to field test some of that stuff for you.....hehehe

    I use an SM-400 with the Goliath, and it works perfectly right! Never had a problem with it!

    Turn that tweeter down! You don't need those wretched highs.
