resident- yes we did make the blh cabs, exactly the same as the ones in the pdf u attached. The internals split down into 3 "L" shaped sub assemblies, so as long as u get them square theyre not that hard to make. The biggest problem we had was sourcing 21mm ply, we ended up laminating a sheet of 12mm and 9mm ply together.
All the parts for one cab fit onto 1 sheet of 1220x2440mm ply, with a tiny bit left over, i can probably post our cutting plan up if i want.

Default Update! "T-Horn"

Since the Mauhorn that I built (plastic polycarbonate sides) I've built a modified Mauhorn, working on the 2nd one. It sounds sooo good, it's scary!!! More than enough bass output!!

Looks awesome.
I presume the mouth is on the back? How deep is the enclosure?

Best regards,

Oliver

Resident,

if that little curve was a horn mouth, there wouldn't be any bass to speak of.
Check out this version of the Mau Horn. I guess he put the mouth on the back, Buschhorn style.

Best regards,

Oliver

Default Dimensions

I'm experimenting with horns exiting towards the back with this one; I already have plans to rotate the head so the horn exits the front. Also planning on making a pair of Hedlund Horns

The dimensions for my "T-Horn" are
10.5" width
13.125" deep
45.75" high

The original Mauhorn 12 is:
11.81" width
16.73" deep
45.27" high

I have a pair of 206FE drivers fitted in Lowther Acousta 115 cabinets. They sound very nice to me, but I haven't heard a pair in any other back loaded horn cabinets to compare to.
