Default bass horns

I would like some info on bass horns. I know that a true bass horn is totaly insane,and could end up very large.(as big as 5 cars)but I have no wife factor,and a 10X16X22 foot room and nothing to do with my time. so let's get CRAZY.

Crazy you want, crayz you get:

I would build two of either of theese:

The Corner Horn

TheCornerHorn is dryer in the bass and has to be corner placed. It is also more of a hifi sub.
You should have 2.5m height in your room.

or


The Sub Horn
Click the image to open in full size.

You can feed TheSubHorn several hundreds of watts, with 150W you can reach 135dB. ie ear bleeding levels!
It has a "wild" character
It should be cornerplaced.
For TheSubHorn, Eminence Kappa 15LF is the best choice.

Hi,

I dont think the SRW8000 is a good choice for a horn. It has a rather weak motor for the cone size.

Size depends mostly on how low is the horn required to go while keeping horn efficiency. For front loaded, 600L can perform good down to 40Hz with the help of a wall or a corner.

Do some research on tapped horns too.

Here are the specs for the driver: Fs 17Hz, Vas 87cu/ft, Mmd747grams, Qes .43, Qms 8.58, Qts .41 Sd 596 sq/in, max stroke 18mm, SPL 97 1watt/ 1 meter, 300watts RMS, 1000max. I'm afraid these are the only secs I have. I'd like to put it in the basement and vent it into the listening room.

OK, 'crazy' I can do .

HornResp limits mouth area, so can't get really 'crazy' with 15 Hz being the lower limit for a full size mouth plus any room gain, so while this is a reactance annulled alignment its LF extension can be increased by using a larger rear chamber and letting room gain pump its response back up.
