Default C-Horn Project!

I want to build a pair of C-Horn speakers... I've got Fostex 206EN (and some other nice sounding 8incers) I have CNC at hand but I have no idea about the cutting plan... any help is appreciated...

as I can see there are two different versions... first one:

and this version which seems to have one more loop in the horn section:

what is the difference between these two?

That is gorgeous. I bet that acrylic wasn't cheap!

How's the response?

Is that a horn sub in the background? Looks nice

Good work!

Those are Andrew Tilsley's commercial horns, you won't find diy plans.

Are these horns designed through hornresp program? Has anybody modeled anything like this for diy community? Ariyahoor, you should also look at Dallas horn, seems to be excellent for the driver you have, as some builders have reported. Do a search you will find plenty of info on it. Stylistically Chorns( at least to me) look lovely.

I don't know what program is used but as they are Commercial designs, I just have to design my own horn. I'll do it with CAD. Plexiglas should be cut with Laser Cutting machine which is at hand. internals are CNC job

I'm from Iran and buying flat kit of C-Horn from Andrew would cost me very very expensive... I've got CNC at hand, I PMed Andrew if I can just buy the design and patent of his product... He will take his money and I can build the slices myself and everyone would be happier

Intriguing looking speakers, but I wonder about the purpose of the circular cutout just below the driver.
