Default Basshorns are the hardest to make

read my site and my 8" digitor horn

I treid it in the car lastmonth-it did work


I dont reccomend you try making your own unless you enjoy using Programs
CAD and Spreadsheet

Yes, it can be done, and has been done. From what I understand, the results are not as great as hoped. My reasoning behind that is because horns are designed for long-throw sound, and a vehicle's interior is far from a large space.
I am VERY curious about horns in the auto environment, if it can be worked out right I would be very interested.

not as such.
Corner horns are designed for 1/8th space acoustic constriction.

Volume of a room/listening environment ofcourse plays a part

Dispersion wont matter for bass apart from the fact that the horn Does Beam slightly,perahps +6db front lobe for a stack of horns it depends on the configuration.

For HF ofcourse its an entirely different matter.

People always thing of horns having 'throw' this is mainly Midrange and suchlike.HF definately.One can cause dispersion pattern by setting the angle of the sides of the horn+ more.
