Whoah! Where's the Donald Duck FLH/BLH from?

I found it in the sticky thread showing off systems.

I've been a little obsessed lately. I literally fall asleep thinking of horn shapes.l

A horn profile is dictated by what you want the horn to accomplish. Has nothing to do with the appearence or visual impact.

It is interesting that you associated Metronome with ConeHead, the name of a pre-cursor to the met was conehead...

But there is art in taking that profile & "twisting" it into a (quasi-)acceptable domestic enclosure.

Its not art, its math/physics, Every bend is a loss which has to be calculated for and made up for expansion ,length and area of the wave front. Its also a timing aspect. The less bends, the less distortion and the less loss of efficency.

Greetings Ron, given that multiple folds require more compensation, would the BiB's single fold make it therefore very appealing? Or should the BiB's simplistic taper be adjusted, maybe with a Frugel-Horn style wedgie or other shape adjustment?

Any thoughts very kindly appreciated.

Well, every horn doesn't look the same as so well demonstrated here so there are various roads to Rome...

Decisions on the configuration are often based on appearance, space available, materials, tools, SAF, drivers available. but of course the bends and folds and flares, etc. need calculating. I don't think there will be argument there...
