Default Scaled up FrugalHorn.

Has anyone used a "scaled up" Frugal_Horn for the Eminence 12LTA????

I would think the size to scale would put the driver, maybe chin high.

You mean the topology of the Frugel-Horn Mk3?

It would be HUGE.

I believe that is the one with those graceful curves at the back..

That would considerably tune the horn way, way down.

PS, redraw for some 3/4" MDF sized up.....the drivers are on-sale for $62....Hmmmm.

Yes that is the FH3 (and FHXL, FH-Lite).

My Fonken-tuned 12LTA boxes are already heavier than i'd like… i'm eager to get the drivers back in, i just finished EnABLing them.

I'd think to an outer layer those curved side-panels with "coarse" cork , 3/4", to keep them "quiet" being as they're so prone to excitation......just so we don't have to reinforce (increase weight)....

Not at all. I should be posting pictures soon, and actually getting to listen to them.
