Default Hedlund and 206

I planning on doing a Hedlund design for my spare 206e . is this wise?
THe main reason i retire the 206 is that it has no bass at all. Previously it was in a mass loaded transmission line.
Also any pitfalls to avoid doing the hedlund
Thanks
Nicholas

You won't get much bass from the Hedlund horn by itself. The Hedlund horn is more of a transmission line then a back loaded horn.

You will probably end up looking for a sub. If you don't mind the sub and like the looks and challenge of the Hedlund enclosure then it would probably work. But if you are going to end up with a sub, why build the big and difficult enclosure when something simple would work just as well.

Thanks for the advice.
I am looking for an enclosure that give decent bass to 80hz. I have a sub aready.
Could you recommend a suitable horn design that i can look into. I have always taught the hedlund give good bass by the looks.
I have put it into a big horn before bass extents but tonality and speed suffers.
MLTL just do not cut it at all. Big box with no bass .

Your best bet for a 206 horn is one of Ron Clarke's.... not sure what the one for the 206 is called.
