True. Basically, nothing much over 100Hz or so, bar a spike up in the 500Hz regions, which I haven't yet figured how to clobber (assuming it's audible) gets out of this thing.

Sorry I got somewhat lost earlier -had a few things churning around what passes for my mind so I wasn't quite on top form. Yes, reflections are a pain; one of the reaons I rarely bother with multiple folds. The long pathlength version of the doublehorn I'm planning will be far more subject to these issues as there's considerably more internal bends. I'm trying to figure the best internal layout at present as I'm not sure I fancy an 80in line ricocheting backward and forward for almost it's entire length! At the moment, I'm erring toward a variation of the FE166E layout. Nagaoka style or a 'proper' flare will both be possible. The response has more ripple than the BVR type, but it should suit those who want an amazingly easy build, or who prefer the small CC horns and want a bit more gain in the LF regions. Although the current one needs a little tweaking, it's pretty much ready now.

Best
Scott

That makes me think... tall, stand up spiral horn... gives the potential for a very large mouth.

This will take a very experienced builder, and I am not sure it will be worth the trouble

Oh, hi Dave, yes It just got thinking of the "spiral" ?

Nice work guys! Creativity is the name of the game. Mind, if you want 'easy' you should try the Nagaoka-style long path double horns I'm working on. All right angles, butt-joints and very simple sizing. We're looking at whole numbers halves and quarters. That's it. A 10 year old could build them, accurately, as a school project. Only thing they'd need help with would be cutting the driver hole. I've seen harder Lego kits.

The Cornu spiral horn was a breakthru... his patent here http://p10hifi.net/tlinespeakers/TLS...orn-patent.pdf (maybe some of the german speakers could help with a translation)

Here is a diy version with more detail...
