Quarter Pie Bass Horn: Measured FR, How2Build, and Hornresp

Hi Claude

 

First post here as I am fascinated by your build that I find particularly interesting for its limited height, thus medium driver can be at ears’ level contrarily to the Altec VOT A7 I am currently using with ALTEC 416 8C

 

Do you think the 416 can be used ? Also, I am not familiar with hornresp. Would you mind publishing the screen with input parameters so that I could safely make some sims without mistakes ? Thank you so much

Not to detract from Claude's work, but if you have working Altec 416's they are a valuable woofer that can be used in various ways. Over at DYaudio there are some highly acclaimed designs using that woofer (notably the Oaken cabinets, my spelling might be off). There are a number of choices.

 

Running a simulation is a good idea, but please keep in mind the the Altec 416 was produced for a number of years and not all versions have identical specifications. 

 

Good luck,

-Tom

Hi Tom,

Thanks for feedback

I'd rather stay in the bass horn, I know the onken. I have large mid bass compression drivers Renkus Heinz SSD 5600 that could go somewhere in the 250/300 Hz with a large K402 similar horn adapted with a proper size throat or the renkus CD CBH250-6.

 

For the TS parameters, I can measure the Altec with Arta.

It sounds like you have a good strategy. I also like bass horns. 

Good luck,

-Tom
