For you my friend, Cal - no problem. I think the RS driver is already in my 150 driver long TS database. What are you looking for in a design? Bass extension or compactness?

No, but it is easy enough to simulate as it can be approximated as one long straight horn with side exit. Question is where should the exit go? Bottom? Up? You can get deeper bass extension but it may not be as smooth. With one horn you can use Hornresp to model easily enough even. What driver and size overall were you thinking of? Note that channel width will be very narrow if you want to get extra path length. This may add horn like peaks and harmonic distortion. It will sound like a brass horn full of harmonic content.

Allright, internet is back Amazing how much you depend on it huh?

X, I am thinking about scaling it up a bit. If I make it 36" from the original squared off horn drawing and make it 5" deep, would that work or do you have other suggestions? Like would that make the driver chamber the right size or...
Is 32" enough or...
I would use thin ply front and back like before.

Default Cornu for RS 40-1254

Cal,
Your hunch on sizing it was good. The RS 40-1354 will work very nicely in a 36 in x 5 in deep Cornu. Here are the simulation results assuming good amount of stuffing in the driver chamber and light-to-moderate stuffing in the channels up to split point. Mount the speaker 53 in (at centerline) above the floor to minimize floor bounce null. Let us know how the build goes and good luck!

Thank you very much.

This build will be slower than others. Dad gets back into town soon so a lot of the weekends are spent with him.

Just found out that the repro places ahve only 36" paper and there is a 1" border so the biggest the new ones can be is 34".

You can print out over multiple sheets and tape together. 34 in can work but you will lose bass extension. I think you should try 36 if possible.
