Looks an awful lot like a commercial Tang Band speaker design I've seen (Tang Band D4-1 DIY Back Horn Speaker Kit). Is this really DIY?

Here's some small folded TL's I quickly put together to have something for Netflix and YouTube on the bedroom PC. Driver is the 4.5" Pioneer A11. The box has a 2 liters coupling chamber and a ~30" line about 4 liters in volume. It's damped on the initial 2/3 with polyfill quilt batting. Finish is gloss black Tremclad and a cork sheet in front.

Response, with mic ~8" away from the cone and pipe output, speaker on a stand and "baffled" with a 20"x30" foam-core sheet to minimize front-back interference a bit.

They do well enough for their intended purpose, the aim was compact. The variable loudness control on the Denon receiver that drives them makes for a decent ersatz-BSC. They are playing roughly in quarter-space though, especially if seated in front and nearfield, so they don't need much of it.

IG,

Again you've done a great job. A "little" different from your Karlson's, but very nice all the same!


Best Regards,
TerryO

Thanks! Seems like I go for real big or real small, to my scale at least. Though I am cooking up something on the large side of things, to be built in coming months hopefully.

Looks nice IG! Any chance of seeing what the internals of the enclosure look like?

As Jeff noted, really more of an aperiodic than a critically damped TL - but should still work just fine

That was a test setup and the final iteration has the first two thirds of the line damped with poly-fill batting, that is to say, the last vetical section was left empty. The coupling chamber is only lined with some thick felt, something called "Maxolite".

I've yet to check the impedance profile for this little speaker, but IMO it will be close to a single peak, much like a closed/aperiodic box. Sticking my ear close to the pipe exit, there is more to be heard than a true aperiodic box though. I stuck enough polyfill to kill some upper-band ripples along with two deep notches.
