Well, I was told to "toughen up" and I was also told I haven't "heard a good horn before" implying I have bad taste, among others. And I don't see how mastermaybe's post was saying the people in this...

I'm doing a maple burl baffle where my thickness will be about 3/8" glued to an MDF substrate. I'm worried about the wood moving and pulling itself apart. I was going to use epoxy instead of glue to...

Very feasible. Just do this:



I get flat down to 10hz with 6 x 12" subs, which isn't as much as you'll have. And mine aren't IB, they're small sealed. I'd get even lower if it weren't for...

No problem.

You just reintroduced performance into your analogy. Now your analogy is more like, Ferrari vs Lamborghini. Similar performance, but one of them has been vandalized. Anyone would pick...

N8, what's gotten into you? Telling me to toughen up, I've got no problem here. Critique all you want, but it's just an opinion so it won't amount to much.

You're car analogy just got worse!...

N8, a small box is very ineffecient, and I don't know the TS specs (I doubt anyone other than Nathan does). But based on the limited info I do know, it has a very strong motor and can deal with the...

I meant TOTL ya, oops. I say that based on talking with Nathan. It's not an off the shelf driver by any stretch. But if it was shown to be inferior to an LMS, no problem. It was only my hunch. His...

Just a little FYI, I have a good feeling the drivers in the Funk sub are superior to TOPL drivers we have access to. I could be wrong, but based on my visual, listening, and chatting with Nathan,...

The Funk sub has about 5% less distortion than an LMS Ultra does.
Unfortunately the THD graph of the UXL is missing on data-bass.

Do you have a minimum extension you'll be satisfied with? Most people want at least 20hz. I know you want it easy to construct.

No surprise there, as soon as I see '21 inch' and 'horn' I envision a driver that's too big in a horn that's too small to give good results below 35Hz. I don't even use eighteens in horns. Horns work...
