Depending on how high the basshorn has to go you could use a bandpass horn like the old turbosound ones were.

100hz to 2khz would be ok not sure folded is so good

anyway, I removed the tweeter series inductor
sounds better without it
it dealt with some electronic issue I had with effect units
and those were removed a while ago
the only effect box I use now is a compressor
and only because it gives a little exstra gain I need

Up to 2 kHz would be fa too high. Even the 800 Hz that EV used for the old "Eliminator" Basshorns for instance was too much IMO. Let alone for a bandpass horn.

folded bass horn is way too big for the standard famely car anyway
my own next project is planned to be more 'lightweight'

I almost have the sound I like now
its just too heavy for easy transport
so now the challenge is to achieve the same, just in a smaller package

This is a quite elegant looking solution but I fear that it doesn't differ that much acoustically from the other horn/reflex hybrids that are around. But it might be a little more complicated to build compared to the latter.

Do you know the cube shaped front-loaded horn from "Klinger". It is quite compact with a side-length of 60 cm. But you would of course need a high-efficiency midrange that goes quite low.

Regards

Charles

it is midhorn with apperiodic backchamber, not reflex...thats the difference

and I wont risk loosing it because of a too high port tuning

anyway, I bought the plywood today
I need to test it before I build more
2 or 4 would be cool
