Default Lab 12 Tapped Horn, Ron's Austin II, T-Horn, CNC Photo Background

Was shuffling between the photo booth & the Mackie Mixer doing sound

I suppose this post would also go into the full range as well,

Photo background - Christmas Party 2009

This is the facility. For this huge place, i think perhaps 4 of these would be better. It is good around the dance floor but too thin beyond that. Thinking about Jim Bell's 3015lf tapped horn for something like this would be suitable??

looking good. My inlaws live in Rocklin, but I'm by the bay. You might have a bit better coupling if you placed the sub on the floor, but looks like it would have gotten in the way of dancing. It's a shame that people close the underside of risers when they're the perfect spot for a wide horizontal array of subs. Although when you do a horizontal array you get the power alley effect and need to use progressive delay on the outer subs to control (steer) the coverage pattern.

my 1st initial placement was on the floor, but as you mentioned, it would have been in the way. Thinking about building up some 3015LF tapped horns...

A pair of 4012 tapped horns, set @ a 45 degree angle, used as the back deflector, matched up very well with the pair of 166ES-R Austins I had.
Worked especially well with everything in corners.

Serenechaos,

Any info on your 4012 tapped horns & your Austin build?

Thanks for that. I'd saved the Hornresp data and drawings from the first post in your earlier thread, but hadn't noted the thread they came from or your moniker. I was actually looking at them the other day )as well as some single fold versions) and wondering if they might be overkill for an apartment. The DTS10 kit thread on AVS renewed the interest in building a TH. Or 4.
Cheers

Hi, do you have any pics of the 4012 horns?

Also, so you find the 4012 seems to be OK when driven beyond Xmax? I think the Xmech figure is quite a bit higher tan xmax which may explain this...

Do you enjoy audible distortion?
