I've got a question for you guys, since this seems to be the place to talk about it.

I've been spending the last few months or so narrowing down a list of various projects for what I want to build. I'm pretty sure I've decided on building a couple of dual SDX10 "wolfhorns" seen here however there is one other idea that I can't seem to stop thinking about.

I'm very curious to know if anyone has done a TH using a single TC Sounds Epic 12. I've looked all over and I can't seem to find one. I've tried using hornresp myself, but I can never get it to look right.

Before I spend too many more hours trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, has anyone already tried this and has a design to share?

Hi DrDyna,

Don't see much a problem with this one (the Input screen has the values for the baseline in the Wizard, the red line is from the Wizard values):

'Ran the numbers' using published specs awhile back out of curiosity, but that's all I recall seeing.

Cool GM, thanks. Doesn't look too bad for one driver I suppose, does it?

Now, I still have to learn the trick everyone uses to go from a hornresp drawing into a sketchup rendering.

You're welcome!

Don't know, haven't built a DTS style TH yet nor has anyone built any I've posted AFAIK, so don't know if these smaller than typical alignments will work well at HIFI/HT power levels. For sure, they aren't going to be as efficient as larger ones such as Oliver posted.

Well, not everyone, I've yet to tackle learning SketchUp or any AutoCad type program.

Ah, really I just mean I've never been able to make accurate sense out of hornresp schematic diagram output/export enough to draw what it's going to look like, much less try to fold it, hah.

Yeah, I've been messing with this all morning now. He demonstrates very well how to fold it in half, but if I did that, this thing would be around 3.5 meters long :S

I'll keep trying.

What's messing me up is L34 I think, I keep ending up with something that looks like a tuba.
