I hope the roof doesn't spring a leak one rainy night when no-one is looking, and fill up the compression chamber!

My idea of a slightly more manageable but still pretty outrageous horn-loaded sub would be to remove the plaster of the ceiling from your listening room (leave the cross-beams in place) and place over the entire room the downward facing mouth of a horn. It would almost fit under a pointy shaped roof, the outside of the horn being shaped the way it is. It would be a bit easier if you had a two storey house because the bulk of the horn could be in the room above.

Another approach if you have a spare room adjacent to your listening room would be to house the (perhaps folded) horn in the spare room and have the mouth taking up the area of the previously dividing wall. A suitable cloth stretched over the mouth area would disguise it sufficiently to give a visiting audiophile friend a real surprise.

Jack Dinsdale (at least that's who I remember it being) made a horn under his house in the UK in the 60's, with the mouth exiting under the listening position. It was about 17' long, so the path delay on the horn wasn't an issue.

My forthcoming LABhorns will do fine in the meantime, and I don't even need to make structural changes to the house.

This system would keep me happy for a while too.

It's the Library listening room, where I listen to chamber music and jazz. When I'm in the mood for orchestral or rock (go deads!) I have my larger main system in the South Wing.

Each of the FW800's utilise a box slightly larger than the quarters that my serfs occupy. I shall get the butler to measure it in the morning. Such details don't concern me.

Default Positively anthropomorpic.

Sort of looks like it needs a face painted on it somehow. It looks like it would give little children nightmares.

It's a bit like Freder's hallucination of the Moloch machine in Metropolis.
