Take the compression drivers / horns and the 15" eminence kappa and build boxes like these... http://speakerplans.com/index.php?id=x15



If you use the above in the short term then upgrade to a more modern compression driver solution it is likely the bullets will be redundant. I don't know the response of your current comps but have a listen to them with and without bullets. You could always make a small box for the bullets to sit on top for now if you feel they are required.

4 RCF L18-P300 drivers = 2 Gsubs , http://www.speakerplans.com/index.php?id=x15 could go on top of the G subs .
can´t find anything on the Eminence PS18-6008 , found it OMEGA PRO 18= PS18-6008, would make some single 18´s like the B&C
for house partys and upgrade later. keep everything you can use and sell the rest like homeboy says , you can also sell first to buy the wood you need , you´l need 400£ upwards to make all them cabs , hope you have tools ,

Like the idea of G Subs but a 2x18 is going to be too big. Have heard about half G subs. Would these be suitable?

Leavethe subs for now.
Build 4 x 1x15 cabs, Fane constructor plan a good start.
Buy some P Audio comps from blue aran. Run it all thhree way.
Buy a DCX2496
Sell everythin that is left.
WATCH out for the 3600 amp, if it has no PIP card for limiting it will eat your drivers.

However: The cost of building the 1 x 15" cabs: Sell all the componants in the tops, then buy 4 x ready made 1 x15 or 1 x 12 passive mid tops.
The NJD ones that come up sometimes are birch, celestion and damn good.

Later stick all the subs in single B&C 18 cabs.

Or, sell everything except the RCF drivers and Fane/Kapp 15's whichever is better, build 4 x B&C 18 subs, two Fane constructor 15's, and buy some nice BMS 1" comps and a DCX. THen you'll have a small/medium and larger system, 2/4/6 cabs.
70% of the guys I know say that the smaller systems earn the money in the long run.

Might be interested in the Emmi 18's if they are cheap smiley2

If you can live with the size of the cabinets the RCF L18-P300 drivers should work OK in Cubo 18 cabs.
This would give you a bit more efficiency on the LF - The disadvantage is the Cubo is about 300 litres
While your average 18" reflex is 200 litres or so.
The supertweeters look very similar to the Eminence APT 80 HF units - they are OK especially above 5KHz.
Biggest problem I can envisage is the crossover betweeen the 15" and the Horn. The 15 will be beaming badly before it reaches the lower ranges of the compression horn - Thats why a 12" crossing over to a 2" comp driver is a popular option.

Ebay is nice but remember you are buying something that someone else wants to get rid of. So be sure that you check them over rather well.

that horn looks like it could play quite low realy

can obvioulsy have a 2 inch fitted as well.....

to be honest i hate 2 inches running low, but slot loading the 15s could even out the dispersion (so im told, im yet to give this a real try myself... makes sense though) thanks djk if you float round these parts.

perhaps with a nice 2 inch driver on that horn it could work quite ok, crossing well over 1k
