Default mini bass horn

Hello,

what do you think about a double mini bass horn
86 dB down to 35 Hz with this driver?

First thought: 2inch driver with 2mm xmax in a basshorn
Second thought: I would like to see your simulation

Hello,

physically the same as my TROMBONE,
but 3,5 m and 2,7 m splitted in two parts,
size ~ 75x65x11 cm each, you can place it together
to get a place for a satellite, or you place between
both 3 bridges to make a armchair like my BASSEL
without the back and smaller, much smaller.

Or flat at the wall behind a flat TV.

take AJ horn and compair it to the KORNETT simulations and measurements.

A very small horn with a very small driver. Well, you could do that, but why?

Holy crap, I didn't think there was such a thing! I'm planning on building a mini subwoofer, but damn, that could make a micro subwoofer!

Their graph shows response to 20khz, I wonder how good they'd sound full range with a tweeter. Would make some nice small 20W speakers if they sound good.

Wonder why they make a 2" subwoofer? Are they putting things like this in small portable stereo's for better bass output?

How big are you planning on making the horn? I doubt these will be really low or loud, but for small speakers with decent sound, these look like an option.

Hi, Tangband lists recommended response to 1 kHz, so I assume it's not suitable for fullrange operation. They make fullrange drivers of this size as well, they're probably a better bet for 20 kHz.

There are lots of trade-offs involved in speakerbuilding. Larger drivers can handle more power, but the cones can have more resonances. Smaller units can sound cleaner, but feasible SPL can be a problem. It depends on your situation and preferences what you choose.
