Hi James,

I was away and didn't catch up on your ear damage until now. So sorry for you. I hope the others are right and that patience will pull you through until it repairs itself. I can't believe you are even thinking about audio right now, unless of course it is a type of relief from the other things.

Also sad that things didn't work out right away on the horn front. It did seem awfully ambitious so I hope you aren't letting it bother you too much. I don't think I would have been brave enough to try that. I am having a hard enough time with foam board and a hot glue gun making Cornu copies.

Thanks Cal. I cant quite muster the £50 I need to get a laser gut guide for the final paper horn - especially if I cant make the general basic working model

There's always this type of tractrix to try. It looks a tad simpler....

BTW have you seen this little setup?

multicell heaven click on the images to enlarge

I love the multicells as stand alone speakers in their own little cabinets.

Dream indeed. I think that's a great way of serving up a multicell. I also can't help but notice the similarity of the bass horn with a Cornu. I wonder if he has incorporated some Fibonacci in there.

I'm going to put that link in the Cornu thread, thanks.

You can brush and wash it to smooth it out as well if you prefer a smoother look

What do you think as a facia cladding for the bass cab?

Hi JRKO,
I tried starting a new thread, but for some reason I have had no takers, so I thought I would just ask you!
I am wanting to do something very similar and was wondering what configuration for the Bass cabinets are you looking at now? Last I saw was that you were going to use faitalpro. But as a bass reflex or onken or something else? Maybe I missed something. If so sorry!
Cheers
A

We still want the fantastic low level dynamics that large drivers deliver, what to do?

First try, turned out really ok, was this:

Click the image to open in full size.

A tiny litle speaker that actually is allmost a 2-way design, the larger of the round parts is a Beyma 21L50, this ,unfortunately out of production, 21" driver is lowpassed at about 85Hz, the smaller round thing is a Beyma 10G40, only lowpassed at about 3k, firing backwards in what could be regarded as a TQWT but with exponential expansion.

The square thing is a Beyma TPL150, AMT driver, system sensitivity at around 100dB and fantastic low-level dynamics.

It moved furniture at pretty modest levels so the 21" was perhaps a bit too large for our livingroom.

What to do then?

Ingvar
Your speakers are beautiful Ingvar! It's ironic that I saw them because I've been conceptualizing something very similar in appearance. I plan to build a similar set but quite a bit more modest with a tiny 15" woofer, 8" mid and a planar tweeter. Although mine will be a bit smaller, I'll separate the speakers into top and bottom cabinets.

Thanks for posting the pics; it's great to see what I'm shooting for.

I'm aiming to go FaitalPRO | LF Loudspeakers | 15FH500 (because they are £50 cheaper than the 510 each at the moment and still look very good) in a ported 75l cabinet tuned to 45hz that gives me a -3db at 50hz and -9db at 38hz. All info taken from WinISD.
