Heard Turbomax 1200 in Marlon Mk1 medium chamber scoop, and is massive.
Heard Turbomax 1500Mk1 and did not sound as good as Tmax 1200 in same Mini scoop (not shortman)
Here is Turbomax 1200 in shortman deep chamber + Inf8V2
Also heard Tmax 1200 in shortman mini which has "huge" chamber, and that will outplay many full scoops (given enough power)... smiley36
However the shortman mini has some naughty compression, so that was more box than driver.
However will also blow if too much power/eq due to excursion
The large x-max and the large le value make the royal 1500 a very interesting driver in a tapped horn sim.
The large le value gives it a flat response in the pass band in a TH, and it will take stupid amounts of power.
