Default Need help guys...want to make a horn box

Ok, i know how to build power amp but not horn boxes, or powerfull sub boxes, even if i did so in the early 90's for cars (bandpass and ported only).

The deal is, i have 1 big power amp (1200w) and a 12 inch speaker capable of 3000w peak supposedely.

I want to make a semi horn box that will fill up a 20hz-100hz range or so for home theater with a lot of output (freq range may change).

I would like to make something like pictured. I dowloaded the hornresp programm but am totaly lost at to where to start entering parameters.

I have all the parameters of the sub itself. Please dont fire me if it sounds simple and stupid...let me know where i can start.

Do you have more T/S-parameters, such as Re and Le?

This driver isn't efficient enough for high output at low distortion in a simple reflex, but if it has at least 15 mm of Xmax, then it will in theory do the DD/DTS/THX 115 dB reference at 1m/400 W, but this is based on the listening position, so either some room gain or more Xmax will be required to meet it.

Here's one like you want, but FWIW, a ducted port alignment is theoretically slightly more acoustically efficient in slightly less bulk.

PS: driver brand/model for my records please........
