Always happy to give credit where it is due.

And speaking of possible changes.

How about making it possible to start a tapped horn with a negative flair in stead of a normal expanding flair?

That little detail has it's uses.

Don't know how difficult it would be to implement though.

Hi Mark,

As far as I know, it should already be possible - see attached screenprint.

Are you having problems generating a negative flare?

Kind regards,

David

Any chance of more comprehesive instructions? For a complete newbie like myself I struggle to understand what data I should be entering where. Maybe some pictures in the help?

Here is an example of entering driver parameters:

Thanks NEO Dan... Fairly right with the driver parameters, as those can be found in the specs and matched to what Hornresp uses.

Just a passing thought, but maybe a cheap and cheerful spec converter in the app? For the novice like myself it would be nice to know the specs provided by the driver manufacturer have been converted properly for use in the app.

Some times the spec are represented in a way that is totally foreign and unknown, and it just add a layer of uncertainty to the process, so some smarts around entering the driver parameters would be extremely helpful.

Generally we tend to gain a reasonable amount of familiarity with T/S specs over the years just looking at different drivers, but I am struggling with the box parameters more than anything. I find it hard to visualise what Vtc, Atc etc etc do, as before opening this program I had never seen or heard of them.

I also see a lot of folded boxes as the finished product, but Hornresp shows a tube like result, I understand that the folded box is just a result of folding the tube, but some pictures that show where the box parameter are located / look like in a folded box, would really help a visual person like myself.

To better illustrate my point a thought just come to mind... I have been writing an app myself that visually demonstrates the effect of changing template guides and router cutters, and show the dimension on the same page as the specs like this...

Hi Silent Screamer,

Google is your friend - try a search using the key words "Hornresp tutorial".

Kind regards,

David

The Calculate Parameter tool enables Thiele-Small parameter values to be converted to their electro-mechanical equivalents, for use in Hornresp.

Try altering the input values, to see how the schematic diagram changes.

Vtc is the volume of the horn throat chamber and Atc is the cross-sectional area.

Kind regards,

David

But that is not the order for columns then rows, nor for rows then columns.
What order is best for entering data into Hornresp?

Left to right top to bottom. The same way we read and write here on the forum.

When in doubt use the tab key... Hornresp knows what's next even if you don't.
