I have been thinking about the same design for a while.
Would be really interesting if you built it and measured.

On a side note, I wonder if one could fold the two halves asymmetrically to spread out resonances but keeping them the same length.
Or maybe slightly different but within 1/4-1/8 wavelength.

In the right version you could possibly fit a compression chamber if desired.

hi david.
i'm not gone bild them.i dont have storige space.
i need 2 sel my 4 w-bins first.

also crossed my mind what would hapen if one makes one side a little longer/shorter.

if you ad a compression chamber responce is flatter and it goes lower.
then i can shorten the horn 10~20 cm.
looks even better

Isn't the width of Jbell's sub 24 inches internally / 26inches externally?

Is that not yet the optimum width for the design?

Ben
The bulldog and the orlando guy's cabs measure 36x36 sides at 21 or 24 wide.
The idea was a square base, stable stacking system. 3 cabs nested or locked on their side for a 6 ft stack. My horn loaded mid/highs would nest into that three per side as well.

Sorry guys But I've been just trying to stay afloat lately and I'm now alone at my day job (with pay cuts). The fury subs are still hammering away 5 nights a week putting food on the table. They have been built around the world by a bunch of people who've emailed. I still recommend the danleys and VTCs anyway. I am sloooowwlly working on a small line array type system similar to the bose job that will need subs so I'm looking at the small th's or a pair of triple 12 cheap rubber surround driver subs. It's for karaoke and small gigs where the band only has 50-100 bucks for sound. More of a service than a moneymaker. 16 2" drivers per cab. Integrated sidefill monitors with an additional 8-12 2" drivers. Led light bar on top to light the band.
I did think about a tall 12" tapped with the 2 inch driver line array in the center but moving it would be an issue.

Glad to see you are all still at it.
