Default Acoustic horn

Hi,

Did Bill Woods go out of business with his AH! line of horns?

Is anyone making similar horns? I know the stereo-lab and the ones from Poland but that is not quite what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Not that I heard this from Bill directly, but I think I saw it mentioned that he's not making/selling horns direct and is only doing consulting work now. Rarely do his horns come up on the secondary market, either.

Regards,
John

Stereolab is out of business for more than a year -- the widow of the founder decided not to continue the company. There is rumour about a possible sale. I am happy with my 25cm minis and surely will keep my fingers crossed...

There are several gifted woodworkers on eBay, and the newer line of Jabo's (square front) are still available if i'm not mistaken.

I think his stuff is used by these chaps:

Oswalds Mill Audio | OMA

Not sure if you can order a single horn from them.

Stereo Lab's site has recently (within the last month or two) been changed to come up with this message:

Is the OS waveguide only possible to buy through Geddes including a baffle? Is it no longer listed at horns-diy.pl.

How about the classic Don Keele Constant Directivity horns (EV HR series)?

Not sure what space you have, the White Whale 90 deg is 1m / 60deg is 82cm wide and the smaller White Dolphin is 90 deg is 61cm / 60 deg is 55cm wide.

Or the later HP640 if you like a medium size flat-front.
All of these five horns reach much lower than 1000Hz.

I can also recommend the 39cm wide 1.4/1.5" versions of this one
Selenium HM3950-SLF 2" Bi-Radial Horn 60x30 4-Bolt

If you could find an AH horn (or equivalent) what frequency/size?

I'm thinking 40 cm / 16 in max. Must be loading from 1-1.2 kHz.
