..provide a *really* good tutorial of Hornresponse (with captured images) on a variety of horns and you'll have an easier time of attracting participants.

hi Oliver

thanks for the input. I've deleted some subforums, with no use.
However, to organize the content in subsections is the main differential i want to have compared to other forums around.

I have to agree -it's like a shotgun at the moment, with a huge amount of overlap, or potential overlap. Could be very good, but needs simplifying & refining.

The most urgent change in my eyes is combining the various driver sub-forums. Dividing the speakers into commercial/DIY/vintage is OK.

I posted above before some of the extraneous sub-forums were removed. Much better now.

FWIW, I would suggest that the Basics & Design sections are combined. The history section might be used not so much as a forum, but as a generalised introduction to the subject.

As noted above, the rest is very much a matter of taste, but for example, looking at the current 'Basics' section, we see a myriad of single post threads, all essentially providing a link to a specific paper. To me, it would make sense if these were grouped into a single (sticky) thread, possibly arraged by author to aid fast navigation, with a brief description of what each is about. It would still be easy for newbies to navigate & browse, and I can't imagine many specific papers will generate especially lengthy discussions.

Just a thought anyway.

Some more suggestions:

The frontloaded horns / backloaded horns sub-forums should be removed. The threads currently in there fit better in other sub-forums.

If you like to subdivide the drivers, then compression/cone/coaxial should be OK, no need for additional "speakers and drivers" forums.

News & Events should be combined.

Theory (mainly links) and design (also real projects) are two things, but a sticky thread with links to theoretical papers should be OK.
