Talking Another old newbie, from Scotland

Hello from Stentor. For anyone else whose Greek mythology is a little rusty, Homer said "his voice was as powerful as fifty voices of other men". Not Homer Simpson, the other one.

To explain my name choice: I have 2 x 42" high x 30" wide x 24" deep homebrew VOTT copy cabinets in a fetching shade of Beech veneer. They have 1 x 15" Wharfedale drivers each, mid boxes atop with 8 x 4" Wharfedale drivers each, le tout ensemble iced with 2 off 8 x 1" Wharfedale Mylar tweeters.

I'll go into the graphic eqs, electronic x-overs, amps, etc when you've reawoken.

Meantime I need some inspiration please for a roofspace-mounted 1 x 18" subwoofer, preferably in a horn enclosure. I have lots of space and an available mouth perimeter in the ceiling of about 9' (but more could be made available). I have about 250W to drive it, but I like LOTS of headroom - say 20dB - so a target input power of 25W would be very nice. X-over point and bandwidth is open at the moment.

Any ideas?

I'll be repeating this in another appropriate thread.

Best wishes from Stentor
