Time to bump this awesome thread back from the dead!

I'm interested in building one of these. Does the Tuba HT limit bandwidth to the sub in any way? Like a bandpass box? I'm just curious as to what the tradeoffs are with an THT is versus Sealed or Ported (other than it's large footprint and volume requirements). What are the negative tradeoffs of a THT?

Yes, if you can live with the size. It's 24"-36" X 36" X 36". I'm VERY happy with mine! BTW, this thread was my inspiration to build mine!

The THT's dimensions are as follows,

36" Height

36" Depth

The recommended width with a fifteen inch driver installed therein ranges from 24" to 36" wide. The wider the cab, the flatter the frequency response within the THT's passband.

Better make sure you have a way of getting it in the house and to where you want to place it.

You basically have to if you don't have 36" door openings and wide corners.

I built mine in the theater, but I also went with the 24" version so I can get it back out of the 30" door. The main the difference between the different widths is a smoother low end response. Believe me, the 24" is a monster!

Picking up an old thread.
Are there any outdoor/ground-plane measuements of the Tuba HT?
At least a waterfall would be great to see. I'm particular interesting in seeing if FLH has resonances and peaks which can be seen with tapped horn.

I believe there were some measurements of a THT taken years ago at one of the prosound shootouts hosted by Wayne Parham.

The short answer to your question is yes there can be significant ringing artifacts in FLH's just like with TH's. I have seen a few decay measurements that show this to be the case. However I have also seen others for both horn types that are very well behaved. Each individual design is different and needs to be judged on its own merits. I have never seen these measurements for a THT. Sorry if that doesn't really help you much.
