Default DIY horn systems

Indoor system. Bass horns(34-150Hz) Although due to room placement I can hear down to 20 Hz. 18" drivers, walnut with cherry frames. 8ft. long hypex. curve with 8 cu. ft. compression chamber. (Mouth is 6ft., 5" above floor). Mid ranges use galaxy 5" drivers. 30" dia., fiberglass, auto body putty tractrix curve.(150hz. to 4000Hz.) Tweeters are MCM compression drivers with modified( body putty added to rear of horn lens), 6" dia. 2000hz. to 20,000 hz.)
Outdoor system. Bass horn(25 Hz -150 Hz) 18" driver presently using home made 3" voice coil. (Lasted one season so far) Horn breaks down for winter storage in shed. Mid range and tweeters same as indoor system. Both systems really sound great! I live in the country , nearest neighbor is too far away to bother them. Friends come over and hear their music again "for the first time".

Ray Shirey: horns look excellent. I have just completed two subbies with 12" drivers in 60ltr sealed boxes. They go down to 31hz, Depending where I sit I either have no 40hz and loud 31hz or a better balance of both. I sit now 1m back from where I use to and the balance is much better.

I love your ideas, Ray. I've often entertained ideas for an outdoor system, but my neighbors might disapprove
I enjoy audio so much that I constructed a web site. I share my ideas at:

Kind of non-compromised horn designs so effectively put in practice, it's a real inspiration for us. Congratulations for your skills, Ray!
It's never too late having an happy childhood
