Default Guilty

Nothing to report, we're not ready yet.
Likewise, I have the VirtueOne. Using Vintage Mirage 450's which I just had refoamed and enjoying those with the Virtue.

I did wonder if Henkjan had any further refinements to recommend.

in my test enclosure they are not flush mounted, if you want to you'll probably want to make the baffle thicker than 18mm.. what I plan to do is add a 9mm sheet of nice looking wood to the baffle (and some thinner of the same on the rest of the cab)

only the very bottom end is where you might want a sub, e.g. organ. so maybe x-over at 70Hz or so, or just make the sub 'come in' where Conic stops. in either case, some sort of DSP for the sub will greatly enhance yr chance of success. I have not tried any sub with them yet.

no further progress here either. clearing out some other projects first, I'm drowning in speakers (to quote my wife)

A dumb question most likely, however...

Henkjan (or anyone), am I right to assume that the external width is 190mm and therefore in the plan above the sides are not additional width?

Thanks for your patience

yes, the 190mm is outside width, assuming 18mm thick wood

Even dumber question than Barn's. Are the side pieces then mounted within/inside the 190mm front piece. Or another way to ask this is, what is the width of the internal slanting piece . It's either 190mm or 190 minus the 18mm x 2 side pieces.

Other wise I have the other pieces pieces all cut including the holes for the drivers and we will be in the shop in two weeks to assemble.

Default Conic horn built

Having committed to a pair of "Henkjan Horns" at the beginning of the year, I finally get round to building the things in mid-Nov.

Structurally complete (in MDF, veneering still to do) and playing music for about 5hrs now I thought I had better post a couple of early impressions and perhaps spur others into action.

A few qualifications on the builder/listener are probably in order - my first horn project, no experience with bigŁ/$ kit, previous speakers were JX92s with a sub (both sealed).

Initial thoughts? Impressive. Everything I loved about the Jordan's (before little fingers poked the cones and damaged them!). Initial veil is starting to lift with break in and bass is coming on nicely.

I have a sneaky suspicion these will be winners.
