See Danley's comments about "stepped" horns. Also, look at Brad Litz's front chamber ... how could you model that as a pointed wedge?

You can model any shape if you have enough sections available. All it takes is a little time, and effort.

No doubt. Problem fixed.

Saw that a few weeks ago. Should murder the older Labsub in most aspects in the same size cabinet. Just looking at the drivers... >2x the cone area, 3x the driver displacement, dual > 5" vc's versus 3"ers for less thermal compression. People can talk about the cabinet having a better more coherent match to the drivers, etc, but advantages like those above can't be ignored. Even if the overall sensitivity is a bit less, power is cheap these days and those will no doubt handle it much better than the lab 12's. Dare I say that DSL is starting to design their subs the way I would like them to with this one and the TH118, TH221? I always thought that they held themselves back a little from what was possible with their driver choices in their cabs.
