Frankly, designing a line with its area sized as a percentage of Sd has no real meaning, and certainly not a requirement. Assuming you have decent modeling software, like Martin King's, I just start out with a line width equal to or slightly greater than the driver's flange diameter, and often an arbitrary line depth, start usually with a taper of 10:1, which then sets the line's area dimensions at the other end, the same width and 1/10 of the depth. But, before I start all that, I calculate the line's required length based on its desired 1/4-wavelength resonant frequency as if the line will not be tapered, then multiply that length by 0.6 to determine the length of the 10:1 tapered line. All of these dimensions, line length, width, etc, can be manipulated during modeling to achieve the desired results.

Can you rather put it as a percentage of the Sd at the start of the line and a percentage of the Sd at the end of the line

As you are now aware, Dave's drawing in Post #24 illustrates quite nicely what I modeled, but you would build it folded once for practicality.

here is a question ? does the baffle step diffraction get influenced by the material used in the baffle
So for instance 12mm mdf vs 25 mm concrete as extreme examples Will the concrete exibit this to a much lower extent?

Speaker design is not as simple as ABC then

thanks again to everyone for the effort in replying

my buttons above the text box are
remove text formatting , bold , italics , underscore , colour , insert link , insert image ( which pops up a box asking for URL only) and wrap

Oh got it now go advanced does the trick !!!!

The taper is aggressive, but that makes it more compact. Paul is well known for his heavily tapered lines. Since the advent of proper TL-modelers, an end-loaded driver is rarely seen
so that does it then the shape is settled now I just have to work out how to wrap this TL around around a concrete molded mid-range either it will look really sexy or damn ugly

I like the idea of concrete about 5 months ago I drew this up as an idea to mold speakers in concrete , Now this is what I called sexxxxy but I wont argue with anyone who insists on ugly

As i mentioned as well. Here is a 1st pass folding added. Do note that i rationalized the dimensions to metric and this drawn with 18mm material.

Given the large size of the midrange, i would mount it on top with the tweeter below (if one rotates the top of the TL by 30 or so, one can reduce the mounted height of the tweeter & midrange)

just to confirm the above drawings are an old idea
I will try to make a midrange out of concrete but wrap the TL around it

Does the end of the line have to point in the same direction as the driver or is it not an issue
I see most of the examples I have seen point forward

At the frequencies involved there is no “driver facing” position. Th event proximity to a boundary can have some effect.

Paul , Dave
with a sealed enclosure the idea is to try and get rounded corners , no parallel sides etc does the same apply here ?

At the frequencies involved even a rectangular box look slike a sphere to the LF driver.
