    This cabinet (pictured before cleaning/reloading the 15's/bedliner application) has all the low end, etc. I could ever want. I am considering removing the "air raid" horn, sealing the hole and replacing it with a HF driver(s) The current horn is not crossed over. It has two capacitors in line. I was thinking maybe 2 piezos would be cool. The horn works, but I'd like to sweeten the tone a little. I would like your suggestions.

    That thing's just begging for an isolated midrange cone, 5" or 6". Maybe a pair. And of course a crossover. Looks like you have plenty of real estate for installation.

    Forget the piezo idea. Great for calling the dogs in from the field, but they won't do butt for BG duty.

    I was thinking about a couple of LeSon's in there.

    Peizos not recommended! :scowl:

    If anything, a cone driver.
