Looks like we were thinking the same thing at the same time - You just type a little faster smile.gif.

A single-fold horn, which is to say one with a single interior partition, is much simpler

yeah...it would be 12 feet long though, which might present some challenges if it needed to be moved.

...

jpm... :-)

that looks right to me. about 5db around the 25hz mark.

...

steve, that was a nice build over at diyaudio. i never managed to read that thread. sometimes they get a little long. :-)

Listen. It's All Good.
