Default horn sub(s) for WE13a horns?

As everyone knows, the WE13a are 14ft long, curled horns that play down to about 100hz.


I plan to get these going in my music room. Now the question is what should I consider for a subwoofer(s) to complement the 13a horns below 100hz.
My room is about 550sq.ft. / 51 sq.m.

Open baffle and infinite baffle bass is out of question for me. My first thought would be a single 14 ft. long bass horn, for proper time alignment. What are your thoughts on this and particularly, what do you guys think I can get out of a 14' long bass horn?

thanks,
Herman

Herman,

You could get as much as 20- 200 Hz from a 14' FLH.

I would even be happy with 30-200hz!

If that is the case, I would seriously consider going with a horn sub. It may be a single unit, placed between the

Other than modeling the horn in HornResp, which I have not used before, what would be my next step in getting this project moving along? Driver selection?

Herman,

There are quite a few design considerations in integrating a horn system. In room measurement of the pair of the WE13a would be a good start for the project. Once you determine what the levels to match (or exceed) are, you narrow down what is required to "keep up".

Although the thread below degenerated into some personal squabbles, it also presented a number of models and alternatives along the lines of what you may be looking for, other than the construction material the OP likes to work with ;^) :
