Default horn construction concerns...

ronc and any others :

What would a minimalist horn require for construction materials (54"+, "nautilus" shaped enclosure). I am most concerned with the possible pressures that can be produced and want to ensure that the "shell" walls are adequately strong, bendable (I can laminate up 2 or more layers of thin Baltic Birch to do this if needed).

Side walls will be 3/4" Baltic Birch, as a channel may have to be routed into the sides to constrain the "shell".

Any ideas or comments?
