What is more accurate horns or cones


Recommended Posts

Claude brought up the F-20 before i mentioned the subject in post #64, i did not bring it up.

Yes, Claude brought up the F-20 first. I was referring to your "knockoff" statement. I think Claude has some valid points.

Why clutter up the "What is more accurate hornes or cones" thread with this.

I am entitled to my opinion am i not ?

Well since bass horns must use cones as drivers.............it's still relevant because we are talking horns.

The F-20 is longer and has more cubic feet, so they are not the same low cutoff or efficiency.

Either the THT or F-20 provide lower distrortion and more powerful sub bass at higher efficiency than the save driver in a ported box. It's just more lumber and worth it.

That is what I would build if I could afford the drivers.

I created a flat pack of a modeled "slim" version of the refolded Gjallarhorn. I bought the drivers at a close out sale at PE. The will be done and measured this year. Sims tell me they will go down to 13 Hz. in my room.

Horns always ..... lower excursion, = less distortion


The simplest, most direct form of a universal audio truth ignored by most mainstream consumers. Bose anyone?

The THT was designed around the Adire Tempest 15 but the driver has been discontinued.

The Dayton RSS390 is a much better driver anyways.

I'be using two of those in my BT-7 horn to replace the NOT maintenance free servo drive (belts).
