It clearly doesn't explain everything but it does look closer to the measurement. A bit less damped and the low corner is maybe very slightly lower.

I fully admit I don't have the answers and I...

Fluid dynamics is one way to look at the issue but I'm not sure how you could use it to do a fold. I'm also not sure the 180 degree bend part is right, a 180 is just two 90 degree bends. But then...

Here's what Lilmike said about that.

"Original F-20 was powered by a BASH 300, with a modded highpass (flat to 20). I have measured it to confirm this."

If the original measured flat to 20 hz...

Hornresp can do sealed and ported too, and ideally these comparisons should all be done in the same program. This will be a good exercise for you. Simulation is a great way to learn what this is...

Yeah, the whole measurement is shifted a bit to the left compared to the sim. But the low corner is only a couple hz off.



It could also be consistent with wrong t/s parameters or a bunch of...

I seriously doubt this. Folding and the effects of folding are pretty well understood and I've never heard of anything like this happening due to 180 degree bends. 180 degree bends are just two 90...

Where are you going to ever move a box that's 8x4x3 feet? It won't fit through any normal doorway and it certainly won't go around any bends in any hallways. It's going to weigh around 600 pounds...

It's actually pretty easy to fold up a hyp/ex horn. A snailshell fold like the Labhorn keeps it pretty square and the chamber in the middle can be any shape it needs to be to make sure it's square. ...

You can fit maybe 60 cubic feet of horn into that space. That isn't much. x3 is 180 cubic feet total.

With that limit you might as well pick one of Lilmike's horns, he knows what he's doing. ...

That's 3000 cubic feet total, not a few 3000 cubic foot boxes.

Anyway, this is totally doable if you make a big riser, angle your walls in and use some garage space.

But since this is what I...

Four ZV4 with 1750 watts each, 3mm past xmax. Not sure how much these cost but probably not worth the extra compared to ZV3.

He's got a garage underneath to work with. He's talking a big game, just trying to find out how serious he is.



LOL, you need more? This isn't enough yet?

I'll check on the ZV4.

This is a good study but one thing is noteworthy. The front loaded horn's low knee is about a half octave below the other two designs. This is a bit unfair to the flh.
