Default Sub for Full range horns

I recently made a pair of Austin A126s, and I have yet to do measurments, but in thinking about adding a sub of some sort. I would like to use the speakers natural roll off and only crossover the sub. And suggestions as to what works best with fullranges?

a horn sub works well for back loaded full-ranges.

For what its worth, I use an autotuba currently with a set of line arrays. Good to around 30 Hz. I used to use (and still have) a 12" ported adire shiva tuned to 17Hz but that simply isn't efficient enough for an efficient set of speakers. It also doesn't seem to match "tonally" . I tried the same shiva in a sealed enclosuree but just didn't like the sound.

YMMV

The 'usual suspects' for horn subs are the labhorns or the Bill Fitzmaurice stuff (tubas).

You need to work out if you have enough space for horn subs as they're not small.

If space is an issue maybe try the punishers down to 40hz and use something more conventional for the bottom octaves.

We have been building push-push Extremis subs... 1 per side is nicest. The extended range makes them easier to integrate... with room gain, the vented enclosure (pushing aperiodic) gets them into the mid 20s. 2 fit in a 16-17" cube (but we use lots of shapes)

Dave,
I considered the apex Jr. push-push sub several weeks ago but it was too small for my application because they needed to do double duty as sofa end tables in my small HT (13'x14' room). I had all but decided to build a pair of single driver 12" or 15" sealed subs probably using the Dayton RS series drivers when I saw your new Extremis based design. Tell me about your new design and its suitability for my application.
