Time to post my intro thread here I guess. hehe
Yea, after seeing your name, I popped over to avs to catch up on some interesting topics....

Still looking for an answer on how big of a cabinet you are willing to lug around? Does one of them still have to fit in the back of your explorer? and are you trailering, and need to be able to fit through a 2'6" door?

how's bowling?

Still the uhaul. At this point all I want is as much out of a cab as possible, if it is bigger than the THTs that's ok because I'll only have to take one or 2. 3 THTs handled a big house party nicely. Hopefully one of these will. If I have to take all 4 dubhorns, the show will be big enough and I'll get a truck.


Unfortunately at 215k miles the Explorer is slowly giving up the ghost. It has served me VERY well however.

Great, shot my first 2 300s in September and got hooked up with a new company called Motiv. I'm on staff and help them with technical stuff, as well as shooting vids of all their releases. Absolutely great bunch up there in Muskegon. If you go to youtube and search "justin motiv" you'll find all the vids.

Open back FLH, BLH, TH... all kinda run together in my mind as slight variations on a them.
Your current open THT's are somewhere in that continuum.

One point to consider, I chose to 'maxi' my 3015lf's with some bonded acoustic cotton due to motor 'port' noise.... I'm guessing your port noise will be 10 times worse with your chosen driver if it is exposed.

At 140db, I doubt it will be an issue haha but I will take it under consideration.

Also the vent is rather flared:

So first question - what inputs to get that response?
Second is it seems that this is just a waste of $ in a "mine is bigger than yours" type of ******* contest.

Right off the bat my TH221 clone:
Single cab 1600 Lt, 131 DB at 20 Hz via 60 volts. 2 pi. 142.6 @ .5 at 20 with peak of 145 at 100 Hz plus. There is more room left in that via EQ/speaker control.
That is 1 complete box for roughly the price of just 1 of those TC drivers.

I am also curious as to what type of music do you play?

Flip posted while I was of reading your intro, LOL

+1 to FlipC's request, it helps when we are all on the same page. So would you mind posting the HR inputs you are using?

Design goals:
>Horn loading to 20hz
>Load with a single TC Sounds 5100NEO
>140db @ 20hz Half Space with 4 cabs/4kw or less

Wi:

It's the 4wk or less that's kind of biting me on this design.
Here's 80v at 8ohm, or about 800watts per cab. (I used .5pi to show 4 cabs, or 1 cab in corner)

While it doesn't quite get to 140, it is only a little over 800liters, and uses half the $$$ in drivers. (I had considered a sim with a boat load of 55-2421, just for grins...) If you want 140, you can get it, but cabinet size almost balloons to twice the size. (as others have asked, please post or link to your original hornresp inputs, so we know what size of cabinet you are willing to haul.)

I think it does get the 'flattest from 20-100hz' award though, and has more 20hz than your original hornresp sim.

Let me know if this is helpful.

BTW -- haven't been following, how did your 'kick' experiment turn out? It kinda affects this, as we need to know how high you need your sub to go.

FLIPC, not sure I've seen your TH221 clone? can you post or pm?
