Default Tractrix horn

There was an aussie guy ( I think..) who had a nice recipe for making your own tractrix horns on his website...
mid to high band that is...

The same guy who had the DIY heatsink cabinets made out of aluminium strips and spacers....

I roughly remember his description, but it would be nice to read it again...but..
now I can't find his pages...

I think this was what was the link Ihad...
http://home.earthlink.net/~lotusblossom/_wsn/page2.html

Any help out there..????

That's John Inlow's page. He posts here as 'carpenter' so maybe you could PM him. Nice guy, and he's in the US.

I've built some trax midhorns and will be making another round pair next week, probably 270Hz for a 400Hz xover. What do you want to know?

Brett,

I checked out your homepage hoping to find some information on your horn work. Very disturbing.

Do you run a notch filter in your system to keep the walls of your trailer house from resonating (ie. flappin' in the breeze).

Adrian Macks'site only works for me with internet exploder, not with a decent browser, but even so, the trax horn page isn't there.

All his trax mid is, is a similar design to the Edgar rectangular, and it uses a poxy eminence Alpha 6.
