Awesome project Hz! :cool:

It is also a great illustration of the tradeoffs with extension vs. output, etc. There is no free lunch as they say.

Fantastic! Another great alternative! :)

Yes, two will help. Either way, I can't imagine any problems with the UXL. Anything is possible, but I highly doubt any issues with longevity.

Keep in mind, there is not much that can be screwed up here, OCD or not. For all intents are purposes, this is a GHorn or at least 99%, just with fewer folds.

Plus Ricci never tested the GHorn...

Awesome man!

I am a little late to the party and missed this thread. :o

I don't think you have anything to worry about with the UXL driver(s). You likely won't be pushing them to their limits...

The graph was based on 1200w.

The lower the power the lower the excursion, but a high pass filter is recommended on most designs.

Yes, if you have a very capable driver and only feed it 500w...

Yes, the THD does rise with the power output level. I guess that is the cost of doing business for a mid-level lightweight amp.
Hopefully, the 7.5 proves to be more reliable long-term and the...

That is true, but they don't displace more volume than a several full-length braces down each cavity, actually less.
So, pick your poison, in either case not enough volume is lost to make a...

Yes, don't forget about the nominal thickness of the panels. When you dry fit things it becomes clearer how things line up and fit.

Exactly, that is what I do and keep a small tube or two around to minimize waste of a large tube.

PL and a Kreg jig are the best tools here. It can certainly be done without one or both, but...

Yes, PL is king. An extra tube is only a couple bucks, and pays for itself many times over in peace of mind. ;)

Also, it gives you the opportunity to determine how the panels...

Ya, just use the measurements to map out the internal panel placement. Then you can cut the panels as needed, making slight adjustments along the way.

Also, there is plenty of scrap for bracing...
