Are you using a Hi-Pass filter on the THT?

I'm sad to say there won't be any MAX SPL measurements posted. At least in the short term future. After I came home from work I started playing with the THT, demoing some music and some movies. I had it up a bit higher than I normally do. Not 15 mins after I turned everything off did I get a knock on the door.. Guess who. The Police. He was really cool about it. I explained how I had been working on it all summer and I was just "Testing it out". He just told me to keep it down and left. I'm kinda bummed about it because this visit sets a precedence. It means I have to watch the volume each and every time I watch a movie now.

That thing must be a beast.
I've got to ask, are there any similar designs out there that use 10" drivers? I'd really like to build something like that using some of the drivers I have sitting around.

How do you think this would work with the Tempest x

How directional is it ? I have one in my garage (2x 12" Eminence LabTec) just finishing up the carpet. Haven't brought in the house to test only outside....I thought someone would call the Sheriffs so i shut her down........This was built for a friend to be used with a band(?).................48"w x 48"h x 24"d...........I'll post a pic later.............

Hrm, Based solely on the dimensions I suspect this is not the Tuba HT but perhaps another horn?

Love this build, mynym! Lot's of bass, no doubt.LTD02 is interested in measurements, I am interested in how it reacts to boundary placement and more subjective comments of the sound. you tried loading it into the corner to effectively enlarge the horHave n flare or anything like that? How directional is it? Will it sound as loud/good if not pointing towards the LP?
Boundary loading should be used whenever it's practical to do so. Having subs next to a wall gets you 6dB of additional sensitivity, and putting them in a corner an extra 12dB. In most cases you'll have best results aiming the subs towards the wall or corner with the mouth about a foot away from the boundary, using the room corner as an extension of the horn as shown here:
