I though since there seems there are quite a few guys building G-horns and alike, A thread would be good for people wanting to see some horn pics of different types and sizes.

My G-horns were picked up yesterday, I finished painting a few minutes ago and hope to have them moved into the basement tomorrow morning and install the drivers and the binding posts etc. We can all just update our posts if we get more pics. I'll have a few more in the coming days.

Hi N8

It's 17.5mm Russian BB formply used for boxing up concrete forms . The sheets have great weight to them and so far my mate and I have cut up 6 sheets drilled holes and have come across @ 3 voids which is great .

This is Lilmike's F-24. As far as I know this is the only examples in existence. It is a foot taller than Lilmike's F-20 and I reach solidly to 17hz unEQ'd. I liked the first one so much I built a second one. F-24 guts.jpg 2825k .jpg file F-24 in place.jpg 1548k .jpg file 2013-04-28 17.48.26.jpg 2148k .jpg file

Thanks. It was hard to try and impossibly blend 2 pro cabs into a living room. Best placement was from the kitchen 32ft away. Black made them stand out just a little smile.gif

Luke should put a warning on the G horn port like a intake on a jet engine or something biggrin.gif

Hi all

I think the bonus having all these different designs in one thread is how people are fitting different shape and sizes in their rooms cool.gif
