What is the lowest frequency you are looking to cover?
Knowing will help as a basis to the design.

But aren't those Karlsons?

Y'know "tapped horns" look a bit more like Karlson enclosures each time I think about them. And the underlying theory is just as coherent.

Not really, though they can be approximated using T-TQWT theory, ie. instead of a series of resonant chambers folded back on itself, a reverse tapered TL can be substituted. Bottom line, all these different alignments are limited BW band-pass alignments.

Hi soundhead,

Imo, The only way to reach 300 Hz is by using a very constricted throat, not Rek., or by Eq a couple of dB:s..
