There is no 'best', only an optimum design for a given application. Or I guess if you have enough $$/property, you could just build a half space 1/2WL 1Hz horn to handle them all.

Default 1hz. horn... HAHAHA

I sugguest that you search the audioasylum for information regarding horns. They has been alot of discuss for as long as I can remember on these babies. If you are really serious about a nice bass horn you should contact the man. Mr. Bruce Edgar. Search the web for information on him. I have dealt with him in the pass and he knows and sell everything you could need. I myself am rockin Edgar horns. But the 1hz bass horn is not possible.

Clearly, you don't have a clue. It would be very large/expensive, and IMO a waste of time/$$/material, but given enough of each, a fraction of a Hz is doable. The largest I've seen in the flesh is (was?) a 7Hz 500lb bomb explosion simulator and the size of a railroad car.

Bill Geiger posted an even larger/lower one for sale several years ago on the HE forum that was used for testing supersonic plane concepts IIRC, but the link is long dead so no longer have it.

Default The best bass horn is (drum roll)

The one you design, fold and build yourself.

And please stay away from most corners of AA about horns. Check out Cornu.de, read up the whole development of the LAB, select your operating parameters such as required, 'tis all about what you want out of a bass horn. Just select your driver based on the ML predictions and model away.
