25Hz Tapped Horn

Recommended Posts

What would you think about building a pair of these to use as base units (no pun intended) under a pair of Belle's? I could make them blend in well with the Belle and the size is almost perfect when laid flat. I do not have the space in my living room for anything much bigger. I do not need concert level spl but do crank the system from time to time. I noticed Rockhound is using a pair of these with his newly acquired La Scallas but have not heard how they paired up or if the add enough deep base to keep up with the high output of the mains.

 

I think a pair of Table Tubas on their side would work better,  Much more output.

Thanks, it was probably wishful thinking on my part, but the size of the tapped horn looked perfect for what I had envisioned and looked like a simple build (no kit). I will look into the table tuba. I have heard about them but never saw the build design.

Here's one THREAD

I did follow that build, forgot how big it was! I think that is way too large for my living room and set on it's side and used a base, it would raise my Belle's 2 feet! I am using these for music only no HT (or organ music). I think I am going to build one of the 25 hz Tapped just for fun to see if it helps. (I would enjoy building it either way) if it works out, I will build a second one so I can raise both speakers.(once I have the router files set, the second one will be a snap).

Thanks for the pointers.

They can be built much thinner with an 8" driver.

You may be on to something. Where can I get some guidance? If it is simple math (reduce volume by reducing depth) I can give it a shot!

When you purchase the plans ($15.00) they give you all the driver options and recommended widths.  The wider they are the more efficient they are.  I'll see if I have a copy here somewhere and tell you how narrow you can go.  If not, I'll have to look tonight when I get home.

I had a copy here.  You can use 11" panels with an 8" driver for an overall cabinet width of 12".  You need 2" of space between the cabinet and the floor which will put you at an overall height of 14".

Minimum width of the Table Tuba is 12" but it works best 1-2" off the floor so factor that in to your total height as well.

 

The Tuba home theater (THT) can be built using a 10" driver and a 12" width but is sealed and does not need to be placed off the floor so if height is a concern it may be a better option.

 

Plus the THT plays lower notes, offers lower distortion and would be a better choice if the floor space is available.

 

Feel free to PM me for details or ask at the BFM forum if the slim THT is an option for you.

It's thin enough that you could stack 2 or 3 in there.

I am doing a system in an 96 318i bmw convertible I just got a good deal on. Ads hcca 4 inch componets replacing stock door and rear speakers. 2 8 inch shallow mounts under the dash. Have a stock square 8 inch cut thur ( from trunk to cab.)that I stuck a bazooka tube in. (Goodwill find for 12 bucks) How would this sub work with this system, looking for good sq. I like the idea of only needing 100 watts or less to power, thanks.

Saw those and do look interesting. I will have to measure my trunk area and decide which one to go with. Back area steps up so it gets small up by cut thur.

I built one. It's a great sub. I did a review:

It ended up in the trunk of a 68 Camaro. Sold the car with the sub. If you are near Minneapolis, there is one for sale https://billfitzmaurice.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=24784 for $100

Anyone know we’re I can find the plans for the 25hz talked horn? Do they still have the kit available somewhere? Thinking on getting one for my room. 😁

Are you referring to this one?

 

 

If so, the woofers and the plans might be available from DIY Sound Group, but I doubt it.  I purchased four flat-packs from them years ago and they now have no record of my orders on their website.  If the excellent Anarchy Exodus woofer is no longer available from DIY SG, a Tang Band is a suitable substitute -- I built one from scratch using a TB.  I still have the "plans" I used.  Feel free to send a PM and we can discuss this further.

 

 

.  In any case, if you haven't seen this thread, it would be useful.
