Special thanks to Oklahoma Wolf for the design and to FUN4ME for the great use.

I was surfing around for riser ideas when I saw the "couch sub" danley sound labs was building so I started looking for a affordable DIY sub riser and found Mr. Wolfs horn. My sons and I started this last weekend and the first one is done and the second one is ready to be glued and screwed.

The riser will be two of the Wolfhorn sdx10 tapped horns powered by an EP4000, LFE will be supplied by a Yamaha AVS receiver via a Samson s-convert.

Thanks again Mr. Wolf!

I think you hit a sweet spot with this one, Wolf. I like that people are using them.

16Hz tune gets you most all of the shake anyone would ever need in an enclosure that is not too crazy big.

Thanks - I was hoping this one would look a little more attractive than the behemoth I built last year. Probably helps a lot that it's a thin enough design to make risers relatively easy, and also goes a lot easier on the lumber. Never thought it would be real popular, but as long as I'm not the only person with one I'm happy.

I'm just pleased someone other than myself gets to hear what I hear.

Back to the pictures... wow, that's a lot of screws. Nice work though

+1,

The design seems perfect as a riser as has been demonstrated with this thread as well as another. It's also not too terribly wide, which helps with it's placement options to some degree.

Good job on the build modelaratrod! It's cool to see that you worked on it with your sons. I'd love to see pics of the full install.

They were both finished on X-Mas vaca and we've been rock'n out every since!

Permagrin!

As far as making them part of the floor, that will have to wait till spring time.

How low does this thing go? How does it compare to the F-20? As I posted earlier in another thread, I would love to build a horn sub just to try out, it might actually work well as a riser like the OP has done. I was intending on building a riser anyway, if for nothing more than getting up off my concrete floor in order to get the more tactical sensation!

I seriously need to learn how to simulate and design horn subs as I do not believe that there are any existing designs that would fit my goals of having massive output for >20hz and to be slim enough to work as a riser.

15Hz is about as low as I'll promise, but if you're lucky to have a smaller sealed room 14 at decent volumes might be possible. F3 is 16Hz. It's designed to reach lower than the F-20.

What about the output differences between this, and the F-20 in the ranges of say....20hz to 80hz?

Hard to say - I don't have an F-20 to compare against. I can tell you the LilWrecker is the more apples to apples competition for my design.

Ok, so how does the LilWrecker compare to your design in terms of output in the 20hz to 80hz range? What driver is used in the LilWrecker?

They should be pretty close to each other. Again, it's hard to compare against stuff I've never seen/heard in person.

A forum search should give you driver info. I know at one point Mike was recommending a Kicker 15," but that changed to Alpine. Not sure which one. I don't have the time I once did to keep up with what's going on in this forum.

I wonder if there would be any significant problems trying to inter grate one or two of these with quad full sized MartySubs? I absolutely love my four Marty's in my new 16ft by 14ft by 8ft room, but, I want to try and build an experimental horn sub just to play around with and see how I like it compared to my Dayton HO18's in some LLT enclosures. I could always sell them if I did not like them better than my current setup.

Like I said in another thread, I seriously need to learn how to use HornsRep as I want to design some horns that can be used as risers and fit wall to wall in my 14ft wide theater room. I would imagine that a 14ft wide horn sub would be crazy! Although it might be more practical to build two, (or more), that could be placed end to end to cover the entire 14ft wide width. I am not sure if anything like this exist.
