I'd like to comment here but I can't work out where to start. I'll just say that I probably wouldn't choose this way, but there might be other applications I'd sooner use a back loaded horn than here.

And why not front loaded? When the horn is getting small enough, I would go for front loading, efficiency gain must be the same or am I wrong?

You're welcome!

Hmm, [150*1200]^0.5 = 424.264 Hz Fc

~13560"/pi/424.264 = ~10.17" effective diameter = 12" frame, not all that small.

If you base it solely on 1200 Hz, then it can be a 5-5.5", but it will need to be stronger, more powerful, longer, so better to use a relatively high Qt driver in a WG to shorten it as much as practical.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.
