Default Frame bass horn

Hello Forum,

What do you think about a bass horn, which is to use as an
cornerhorn or Satstand
the horn mouth is an opening slot for the horn designed around,
extreme "spatial distribution" on the wall long 0,067 x 3.5 m.
Probably the best area to stimulate, and even as Satstand
direct to the listener the bass is to ~ 50% indirectly, should stimulate Raumresos less.

In the stone corner of your room you need only a cover plate,
no outer enclosure.
Only one wall to bevel!! and this wall is like ~ 50% of the housing made of soft fiber, very easy to build, cheap, cut out of the
speaker is the only difficulty.

The horn end not at one point, it opens between
~ 2.4 -2.8 m length.
The horn is designed for 20-25 cm, the AL200 8 ohms, for example, is very good. Or Monacor SP250P

Some extent, with the outer casing, falls away in the corner,
93 x 47 x 59 cm

a suitable satellite is planned to have no need to submodule,
but my dopppelhorn principle, then, each with a frame horn.

As it should cornerhorn, max. 100 Hz with active module and a little bass boost, spaces to 40 sqm with sufficient pressure to ~ 30 Hz supply.

Happy New Year 2009

I think everyone here is too excited about Tapped Horns at the moment. They seem like the best choice for getting low in a domestic environment. Easier to build than your proposed design.

Without specifics on the horn you showed it's hard to make an educated guess on it's performance. With such a short horn path length, it's likely that low bass will be lacking.

yes i made the smallest TH and combien it with my double horn technic, but the same reaction, no,
may be you canīt read or understand or it is the normal reaction
to germans, white rassismus.

easier to build: how much parts are to bevel by a TH,
the Frame-horn only one and this is in softfibre.
short horn= longer as an Klipsch

If you know how to construct a horn, you have all info in my text and plan.

you didnīt read and understand, sorry such blind answers
i didnīt miss.

Actually to my eye, if you stick this thing in a corner...........
It is sort of a tapped horn!
The woofer fires into the corner of the room, and the horn fires into the corner as well such that you sortof have an adjustable mouth tapped. Very cute.

To take it out a slight extreme.
Reverse the driver, angle the cab and put the horn mouth on the bottom with a pre set corner plate so it sits in the corner correctly
utilizing the whole wall corner as the mouth stage of the horn.
Make it pretty with some LED strip lighting in some kind of decorative pattern under a lamp shade above it to create a fancy corner room lamp. I'd hate to be sleeping on the other side of the wall though..

I'm not an expert but it looks like a cool design. With it up against the back wall you get floor and wall loading. It looks nice too. Would a FE206eN or FE208E sigma work in the enclosure?
My religion is the golden rule. The only time it's forsaken me is when I've forsaken it first.
