Default Fiddling with Hornresp - Peerless 831759

Just curious if anyone has messed with Hornresp, or made a horn subwoofer using a Peerless 831759?

I've got a few spares, but I don't want to go to a bunch of trouble if it's going to be terrible, however I am intrigued by building a set of horn subs just for fun to see how this driver sounds in one, even if it ends up being refrigerator sized.

Anyone ever try it, or can take a quick glance at the specs and tell me if I'm wasting my time?

Edit: attached specs.

No, specs indicate a keeper though, so bjorno's or do your own starting with soho's very flexible TL, TH designer.

BTW, loading specs into HR, then exporting them to a .txt file for posting allows others to load them or a whole design straight into HR [attached]. See pg. 7, 8 of the HELP file.

Thank you guys very much, that TL does actually look easier to build, too!

Edit: Google as I might, I can't find anything about Soho's TL TH Designer. Is this software I can grab from somewhere?

I like the way this alignment looks, do you think I could use Soho's TL-TH designer to model one like this for that driver? (I still can't find it though!)

You're welcome!

Interesting, I usually have good luck with Google, but not this time unless I search for 'eazy horn': eazy horn - Google Search

Thank you all again! I'm going to mess with this spreadsheet and see what I can come up with. I'll post an update before I put pencil to wood.

I'm pretty pumped to try it out.
