  1. Thanks, again. I think I'll keep working at the LaScala bass for now. It's a learning process for me. If it doesn't my needs I can try something different and I'm only out wood and time.
  2. I think you answered my question when you referred to the part of the horn after the first turn as "dead space". I was thinking it should be wider than the section at the back, but it's not. And you're right, it probably would have been easier to find a used pair of LaScalas and refurbish them (though a quick search didn't show any in the St.Louis area). But one of the goals of this project is to build some woodworking skills as well as some speakers. I didn't see the FH-1 before. Seems like a good alternative. I do have to take size into consideration, though, since they will be going in the family room. This is all good info. Thank you for the responses.
  3. Those are beautiful. Yeah, I looked around for other plans that went a little deeper, but wasn't completely comfortable with the increase in size. The Volti Vittoria seems like a good compromise, but I couldn't find a diy version. Anyway, it's my first foray into building horns. I have a feeling it won't be my last.
  4. Thank you all for the responses. I got a chance to read through the thread Full Range linked (I had started it previously, but never got to the end). Lots of good info. I'll probably try the ported bass mod eventually, but want to get through this build first.
  5. Thank you for the quick response. Yes, I am will probably add some thickness to the sides. At least to get to 1", but I maybe 1.5". So, just for my own peace of mind, and to make sure I understand the layout - when the the horn turns to the front, it has a width of 2.75" and a height of 22.25". I'm sorry if I'm asking hte same question again, but for I would have thought the width would have stayed at 3" or got slightly wider. Thanks, again. I appreciate the help Peter
  6. This is my first post, though I've been lurking for a while. I'm start to build a pair of La Sacala clones. I'm using the Elliptitrac 400 horn and Eliptitrac for the skwawker and tweeter along with the La Scala bass bins using plans that were included in another post here. I have a question the bass bin plans, so if this isn't the appropriate place for the question, let me know. The question is regarding the dimensions, particularly using 3/4 plywood. It appears that if 3/4 material is used throughout, the horn narrows from 3" wide to 2.75" at the 1st turn (where it turns to towards the front). Am I seeing that correctly? And if so, so if impact the response? I'm sorry if this seems like a beginner question. Peter
