Default horn (tapped or otherwise) suggestions

Hi All,

I am reading good things about horns.. Has anyone come across a build with the tang bands (6.5 or 8's) that is able to be wall mounted (supported with legs) behind a 50" plasma?

The mouth would have to open into the room

I yearn for mid 20's.. I live in the uk and drivers are really hard to come by..

I can get drivers from either
http://www.lautsprechershop.de/english/index_hifi.htm or
http://www.europe-audio.com/intro.asp

thanks guys/gals.

What about Erik's two TH ideas with the 6" TB's?
http://volvotreter.de/th.htm

Then there's the Spud clone (look for a thread here), a dual driver TH design by JLH (look in big TH thread) and a variation would be the CSS SDX7 TH project that's started here.

They are all quite thin so should be able to integrate in somehow with the big plasma.

Wont that eventually F! up your TV?

I suggest the SPUD clone also.
You get major feel effect plus your TV's life span will probably increase dramatically.

I plan on the mouth being below the plasma and firing out from under it..
The spud clone is too large
I have seen the volvo site.. very nice but only down to 30hz..
I will have a look for the JLH design.. **edit** found jlh's dual driver version.. it's huge.. to big for me.

thanks guys.

if someone could help me out by posting a screen of what I need to enter in hornresp for a tb w8-740p? or a w6 I could try and muddle through from there..?

I am hoping for a doublefolded horn like on the volvo website but mid 20's.

Here's a single driver version of the dual driver TH I did back when folks started talking up this driver.

I find it easier than WinISD.
Specially cause WinISD always F!s me with not allowing the info I put in for a driver. Hate that.

HR is pretty darn easy.
Like with any other application you have 3 choices as a starting point. So decide if you either
A.) Want to use a specific driver
B.) A specific size requirement you must restrain to.
C.) Specific output.


The hardest to start with is C.
This leads to BIG to huge enclosures. B is the second hardest as HR is limited in the # of folds it can work with. So I suggest starting with A.

So you input the speakers praramters into
the bottom section. IF you do not know all the #s let HR auto calculate by inputting what you do know.

Input 2 Pi
Always use this as a standard starting point. Though in reality it will be quarter space (1 Pi). Eg (volts) = Use 1 watt per given OHM value of the speaker. 2.83 =8ohm, 2=4.
After that input some erroneous info just to get started.
Like
S1=100 S2=200 Con1=50
Click on the L input to change horn type. (Exp/Con)
In the bottom section under Re click box to change box type to TH.
Now under Tools select Tapped Horn Wizard (CNTRL+H =shortcut) and play around with everything in here.
If I recall correctly the TH wizard
will not put in an S5 segment. You CAN and then it will use the info. - In case you want another fold.

Post up some requirements
like MAX dimensions and Frequency range you would like ti to do. I am sure some people with be happy to play around.
