Default looking for 6.5inch woofers suitable for a 30 - 35Hz horn... and a small horn too :P

as the title says... anyone got any ideas? I noticed that the scan speak drivers have really low fs... which is good... but really high pricetag :P I also discovered that if you put multiple drivers in the one horn, the horn length gets shorter... why is that? THANX!

Any drawings of how you are going to make this horn? I was also thinking of a horn with dual 6.5" or 8" woofers, though not for car, so it can be a tad larger. I wanted it to be useful down to about 25-30Hz... but I have not done anything with horns before, so a picture could be useful to see how you are going to do this.

I haven't designed the horn yet, as I haven't decided what the best drivers to use are.. :P

this horn would be good for about 40watts before the drivers exceed X-max

EDIT!! but at 35Hz it should handle full power.. lol I honestly have no idea... MIKE!!!! HELP!!

The response curve looks a little peaky and has an odd low end hump....Just wanted to see the specs of the driver. At first I though it looked like a too high q driver, but at .4 its hardly out of useable range for a horn.

Certainly looks like the horn could benefit from being a little larger...

====

View the single driver horn along its length, now cut off whatever portion of the initial expansion is required to get to the larger throat area dictated by the multiple drivers........ Note that if the shorter length is <1/4WL of the effective mouth's Fc then it will perform like a high Q sealed cab below its effective 1/4WL.
