That's hilarious, if you go back and look at all advantages: doing two at a time... highly gratifying...

Hate to say it but I am already thinking of my next build.
GD you xrk!

It something along the lines of Cornu that I designed many moons ago and it is spelled *uck. If you're Canadian you'll have no trouble with the first letter.

Could the spiral in the cornu be squared out and still have similar bass response but better fultration of higher frequencies ? Or is a round/curved horn always better

I confirmed that the local Dollarama has foam-core for $1.25/sheet.

Who TF knows, this is something that xrk has brought to us with the foam core. This and many other designs are gathering dust in a box somewhere. I remember many moons ago when I would sit around, roll a fatty and design speakers. I found out later that many had come before me. I designed many speakers that were already in production but because I had no money back than I couldn't even afford the magazines that would have told me so. I'm actually a speaker genius 30 years too late. Nowadays they have all kinds of new fangled gear that tells me how wrong I am but do I let that get to me? Heck I was interested and building speakers before the T/S days and never caught really up.

Come over for a beer and you'll get a better perspective.
