Default OK read the tutorial still need some help...

OK I have a few pairs of dMar-kens and need some support from 35-80hz. Now I have a dozen or so Silverflute 5.5" midbass so I decided to model a tapped horn in Hornresp with the tutorials guidance but I still can't get any good results and I don't know where I'm going wrong. Essentially I want to use 2 drivers in parallel per horn and my only criteria is it stays somewhat small and has usable output in pairs from 35/40-80/100hz. Size must fold into something no taller than 26" high 20-24'' deep and 9 3/4" wide. Any help would be great as right now I can get lots of output in the region I'm looking at but excursion at fb is a concern. Any suggestion on how to model a cabinet with dual drivers please help a brother out, Thanks in advance.

Hi
Correction: Cms = 1760.5 uM/N = 1.76 mm/N
I'm just starting to fiddle with it in Hornresp now.

I see your point about the Xmax.
The two boxes shown below both reach Xmax with about 5.65V RMS input - about equal to 4W into 8 ohms or 8W into 4 ohms.

OTOH I'd be happy with that as there's plenty of output. I rather like the idea of a sub that can shake the house with half a flea-power. When idiot acquaintances breathlessly ask "How many watts is it?!", the model answer would be "Oh, about one I suppose. It can go all the way up to five though".

Thanks Godfrey, you pretty much modeled what I already have but it tells me I wasn't too far off. Now to fiddle around a bit and get what I want or as close to it as I can. Seems I can fold 10-12' of line into a box 26" tall by 10" wide by 24" deep, the folds being the hard part but with that length things start to smooth out a tad.... I have to Remember I'm not really looking for a Subwoofer, more good output for re-enforcement of the stated area where the dMar-Kens start to fall short with that being said I'm not expecting miracles from two 5.5" bass units either.

Can anyone help me do a double fold on the larger horn Godfrey modeled, I'm having a hard time grasping how to take a 9' line and fold it so it's no taller than 26". If I can fold it twice each line section will be 66cm long excluding material thickness. I'd ideally like to keep this cabinet in the 11 X 27 X 24" range if that helps at all, any guidance is appreciated... Take care.
