Nice plans now I see what you mean those measurements are in (US) inches correct? How tall is the cabinet? Also the Dayton drivers are 6.5"? I guess double one on top of the other? Dayton's are cheap here in the US so many may build these! Do you have any idea if a Faital Pro 12" would work, I do not know horn response and don't know how to plug it in! Thanks a Million!

ok 2 graps representing with 15 ltr rear chamber and one with 1 ltr chamber.
dont know how the angle thingie works in akabak so you get a 0 degree plot.
the dayton doesnt get higher then 2.5 khz
i was planning a 40"high 15"wide cab so you get u wider dispersion.

I like wide dispersion and I will go with the graph that give the most db which is the top graph.

have you considered a configuration like this? Fewer bends should sound better. Best regards Moray James.

Hi Moray not in a negative way or anything but I have heard those Peaveys loaded I think with the Black Widows and they sound not to good in my ears just my personal experience. Maybe another driver would give better mid-low clarity thanks!

this is essentially the same design as a Belle but not truncated like the Belle is. Driver should make all the difference. It is the least amount of folding you can use to get the job done and should be the closest option to the best which would be a straight horn. This will get you a little lower than a LaScala but about 80 Hz would be a good place to cross to a sub. A smaller cavity should make for smoother response I am told, easy to reduce the volume of the dog house. The crossover in any of these old Peavey's is going to sound pretty bad so keep that in mind. The horn itself is a very good design I think. The Peavey FH-1 is almost the same design as a Belle and PWK knew what he was doing. Either will work better than a LaScala. Best regards Moray James.

if you want horizontal dispersion ,you need a tal box.
