Default Cheap Tang Band mini Horns are back!

Let's see some nice small designs for these woofers!
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=264-919

I like my volvotretter 38hz horns loaded with these woofers, but the price of them (because of the Neo magnet) is getting crazy.
Tang Band W6-1139SI 6-1/2" Subwoofer 264-832

slightly different specs, ferrite magnet drivers have slightly lower fs, so lets see some new designs! $54 each plus some wood and glue, makes for a nice small horn perfect for smaller, unobtrusive systems!

Price is now $48 each

At least on a quick sim with the parameters provided on the PE page, they should behave at least "close enough" to the original (neo) version. Seems like a steal

The price of neodymium is stupid crazy. I'll never back myself into another corner by designing anything around a driver with a neo magnet again.

Count me in for a new design based on that driver. Would love to see very small box tapped horn that could hit at least 30 hz with authority. Sick of big boxes.

I don't think that 30hz and VERY small should be used together. 30hz and REASONABLY small is more realistic. Small footprint single fold (tall) horn is do-able. Corner loaded (and out of the way) could produce decent 30hz spl.

I'm working on simming a TQWP for this bad boy. Just need some more time.

Hi,

If you want small: you may want to look at a 15 Litres net vented box with an 8" passive radiator. For a tapped horn you're looking at 100 L.

Regards,

Hi,

Small box with authority including SQ? That is a huge contradiction to what Hoffmans Iron Law stipulates and gross wishful thinking of SQ especially when loud HT SPL's is written on the Santa Claus wish-list.

IMO, If it's the footprint of the sub that determines what is small, its possible to design a good sounding sub but if only a 'cube-like' design, the result will be no better than a small computer-sub.

The picture= Design using IKEA-Blanda :
