Throat small, mouth big.

What type of horn exactly are you designing? Bass? Full range? High frequencies only?

While I'm sure those are awesome horns, they sure as hell are ugly as ****!

Ugly! Those things are a work of art...

Do a Google search for Kleinhorns...those are nice...

Over on SIN, Jeremy G published his photos from building Fostex full range horns...interesting read.

well i was wanting to use my RE 6.5's from the comps...i guess it'd be full range.
ya after i got to thinking about it, it'd be pretty dumb to have a small mouth :rolleyes:

how do you determine the length of the horn? i have no clue so i was aiming for "1/4 wave" long. 7.06ft long is what i was gonna do....1/4 wave of 40Hz. does that sound right? should i go higher/lower?
