Default How about an ss15T tall boy?

For small rigs using one sub per side under a 15xhorn or 12xhorn such as small band or karaoke or side fills, I think a tallboy ss12/15 would be handy.
Said cabinet should be about 18 inches wide and about45 inches tall.
45 inches fits in most vans and is the minimum height for a good stack putting the top cabs at a good height for standing audiences. (think Meyer 650).
No pesky poles! I would put a pole hat in it anyway and a short pole for safety.

I wonder if the ss15 could be adapted with the speaker on the bottom and only 2 internal bends. A cross between the original DTH20 and an ss15.
Would be a simple cab to build too.
Has anyone got something like that already?

Hi screamerusa,

I posted a larger version of the SS15 in Post #564 of the single sheet thread.

Regards,

Xoc1 I saw that earlier. seems I read something about max spl issue.
Could whip a proto outta scrap pretty quick. I'd wanna compress it though to save the driver.

TB46.. wow that's as big as a furybox....Nice smooth path!

I was thinking of something like what Xoc referred to but with the speaker on the bottom. Dont have a drawing proggie available at the moment as I'm doing a post virus rebuild.

The Keystone sub is 45" tall by 26.5" by 22.5 deep.

Plans are in #94 of this thread:

Keystone Sub Using 18,15,&12 Inch Speakers

Very easy build, that Bose cone you were looking for a box for might be worth a try, everything I threw in the box worked reasonably well.
The BC18SW115-4 loaded Keystone powered by a bridged Crest CA-9 will put out more 40 Hz than 4 Meyers 650P dual 18" cabinets.

Slimming the Keystone down to 18" would be easy, though I don't know how well it would work, the 4015LF required a smaller front exit than the B&C18 or the Lab 12s.

It did work pretty well with a pair of Lab 12s, indicating that a half width may not be a problem, though as you found, adding a center brace can change response quite a bit, so no guarantees.

I had in mind a compact speaker system for smaller gigs also and I saw this thread.So my idea was this ...
Untitled.jpg
It's just a sketch but with the smallest size I would prefer to have.The smaller enclosure is a 15" without the mid and high horns,so it would be a 4-way system.I just need to know which 18" driver will work i.e if an 18" will work.I'm asking because i.m still a hard-head at horn responseI like the Faital pro18 fh500 for the neo magnet.
I accidentally closed scetchup without saving so I couldn't draw in the horns.

Simple Acoustic.
I had similar ideas A while back...lol

I think you might want to put that sub woofer pointing down in the mouth and wrap the horn from bottom front to bottom back and up. I suspect one hell of a phase problem the way it looks now. Its also gonna be HEAVY. 48" is pretty darn short to put a HF Horn. Thats why we usually keep the mid.high boxes separate for portable systems. You might need to fly them or carry them up stairs. You kinda want the hf horns above 6 feet.

Hi screamerusa,

martinsson did his THAM15 tapped horn for the B&C 15TBX100. This fold could be modified/enlarged to fit other drivers. In simulation I found the tapped horns to be quite driver specific. It would be nice to know what your current driver choice is.

THAM15 - a compact 15" tapped horn
