    Throat small, mouth big.

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

    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

    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?
