Default High Efficiency Subwoofer Design

Is anyone interested in a high efficiency subwoofer?

I've written a paper that shows how to make a extremely compact subwoofer with
high efficiency. It's not a bandpass, or a horn, but it's similar to both.

Check out my article and let me know what you think. It's a free download of course.
download the pdf file

If you want to discuss any points in the article,

Tom Danley refers to horns as damped resonators. Although using resonant energy for our acoustic means may be abit sinful,I think theres a difference between BP4s and horns WRT response in the time domain,and ofcourse steady state distortion.

Interesting. Il take more of a look later. See hornresp for modeling horns - apparently it agrees well with the quarter-wave.com files.
