  1. Depends on the room, corner placement is usually best but not always. You can experiment when you get to that point.
  2. Improper placement will cause a null in frequency response, if possible fire it into a boundary for best results. Near field placement is not a great choice in my experience using horn loaded subs.
  3. As long as the horn mouth is between 18"- 2 1/2 feet from a boundary ( depending on the crossover point) to avoid a null it would work fine.
  4. Subs in a hatchback with the rear seat down works just like a horn along with the added cabin gain can work very well. A 10" driver is really not recommended in the THT though it will work, better if used in the Table Tuba design and the recommended driver is very reasonable in fact less expensive than the little 6.5" driver in the little tapped horn mentioned earlier with far greater output.
  5. The only advantage to that tapped horn is its small size. Probably fine in a smaller room at lower outputs. If you do decide to build one don't include the padding on the bends, it serves no purpose. Max output would be similar to 1 watt through the Belles but it would be struggling by that point.
  6. Just like the Communists in China would do.
  7. The front firing THTLP will work if you have 6 + foot ceiling height. Don't underestimate the Table Tuba as an option.
  8. The Tuba 18 is not worth adding as it really does not dig much lower than your mains. I suggest a 10" or better Table Tuba or THT in the corner and not the THTLP unless you plan on laying it down firing it into a corner, sloped ceilings are not the best place for the horn to exit.
  9. Bill is a member of many forums, he probably reads the forum here. Maybe somebody said something, i don't know but many forum members have done business with him that i know of and could be many more but to blame me is just wrong. You want to make an *** out of yourself that's fine but leave me out of it.
  10. At least you admit it now leave me out of your games.
  11. Sad assumption, i come here to help and learn. I recommend Bill's products because they work just as i recommend Klipsch where i can.
  12. On the lower part of the THT page it lists the Tuba low profile version hence the THTLP and there are 2 versions, end firing and front firing. All work the same, choose witch version that fits your space best.
  13. Upfiring or down does not matter, whatever works best in your space. Use Arauco or or BB, avoid MDF. I recommend the 15" Dayton driver in the plans.
  14. Leave the interior volume within +/- 10 % and you will be fine, just re figure the cabinet in bookshelf dimensions.
  15. I don't blame you. Not sure about weight and would hate to guess, it would take 2 guys to lift as its bulky.
  16. Kind of rude to list at one price and then raise it, don't know what to say to you.
  17. $ 500 is less than it would cost to build one out of BB, it would be silly not to purchase.
  18. No problems and not under normal conditions. Horns are not air pushers like normal DR types but will move stuff under high spl.
  19. Never left, just taking it easy.
  20. 14" x 23" on a 24" wide cabinet
  21. I guess you could rent a fancy crane. The post has been removed for some reason anyways. What really matters is response in your room.
  22. You don't really need fancy equipment for proper measurement. A hole, microphone and an open field works just fine. If you really need a full space measurement hoist it up on a crane.
  23. For those looking to save some cash but still enjoy clean horn loaded bass. >link< No affiliation.
  24. You are probably thinking about a low pass filter. This will need both a high pass and low pass filter. With that attitude good luck getting help here, sounds like you really need it too.
  25. If only Radio Shack was still in business.... Their twisted flat wire was cheap and high quality, my 20 + year old wire still looks like the day it was purchased. Dad used lamp cord back in the day, it did green up like it was kept outside. As long as you keep an eye out and know what to look for its nothing to loose sleep over.
