Cats are like us, whenever they spot a speaker they are drawn to it. Especially if it is a loud subwoofer.

I still think he got a bit surprised by the directivity of the tapped horn when he walked in front of it.

Ok, I'll ask - what's with the square-mouthed horn and the 6 3x7 piezos on top of it?

The straight square-mouthed horn is a one I build for testing how mid-range drivers actually perform in horns before designing a specific horn for them. The piezos were bought for testing how a BF-style array works. But I have not had any success with getting them to work well. I just used this setup to listen to some music with the tapped horn. Not very hifi

The yellow car is my TVR 2500M


Maybe cats are not able to hear as low as we are?

If it was the response of the tapped horn I posted, then it has its own thread:

Tapped horn for B&C 15TBX100 th115 style

I still have not got around to do a better measurement but I will hopefully do it this spring/summer.

I looked right past the horns when I saw the TVR. We don't see many of those on this side of the pond (sadly). They are beautiful, if quirky looking, cars. Driving one has been on my bucket list for years.
