Interesting Horn info

Posted 11th July 2013 at 10:55 PM by DougL

In this post the User clams that the Compression driver Atlas PD5V is a derivative of the WE555, which was good down to 100 Hz


There was also mention of an AES paper on how to create a phase plug for a cone driver.

Based on Romy's ideas on a mid-bass horn, This might cover down to 200 / 300 hz to transition to a Tapped horn.

    If you can get Renkus Heinz or Emilar 2" exit drivers you get
    equal performance to the Radians as these are all
    designed by Jonas Renkus and differ only in areas that
    do not alter the sonics to the point where anyone could
    tell them apart.
    I discarded 2" exit drivers for domestic use altogether.
    A good 1" driver like Radian, Emilar, Renkus Heinz ect.
    on a Seos 12" horn is pure bliss. Goes from 1khz to 18khz and
    the top octave even sounds better than a really good bullet tweeter
    because there is no integration problem.
