Downfiring Tuba home theater (THTLP)

Recommended Posts

Why are you doing this as a down firing vs how a regular THTLP works? This is strictly a question of curiosity.

Looking good man!! Or, are you building this for someone?

The THT works best with a boundary, floor, ceiling, wall or corner.

 

Downfiring just uses the floor for the boundary.

 

Works best 16"-24" horn mouth to boundary so the 18" leg height works well.

 

Its for myself.

Yeah. I have both of mine 12" from the wall, and both are in corners. I did some sweeps with REW and saw no difference in 18" vs 12". I like how they look better at 12", so that's where they stayed.

I can't wait to see the final product man!

Mine sits in the corner 10" from the front wall and 2" from the side wall. Mouth is 2.5 feet from boundary. After a lot of experimenting with placement/location this worked best in my room.

 

Mine is the 18x15x72 'slim' THTLP.

This is precisely what I wanted you to build for me when I was inquiring a few months ago... a vertical horn.

let me know how it sounds!

By all means use what works best for you in your room.

 

My old 24" THT worked great right between the La Scala's with the horn mouth pointed right at me.

 

Schu, the THT & THTLP sound the same, really good. If you can fit one into your room layout and crave clean bass notes its a win-win situation.

Can't go wrong either way. I think the LP is a bit more difficult due to the length?? Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Not saying it's a hard build, just more difficult then the THT. I had no problem building my THT, and was planning on building a second THT until I got an offer I couldn't refuse.

UPS delivered the new Dayton late last night, probably get back to the build on Friday.

 

More to come...

 

The THT and the THTLP builds are about the same amount of work, build what fits your needs best.

Was hoping to get some more work done today but an old neck injury is bothering me (pinched nerve).

 

Must have slept wrong or sneezed too hard or something, i don't know.

 

Anyways i hope to get back to work soon.

 

Something for you to look at while i recover.

Ran the speaker wire through the motorboard and installed the side panel last night.

 

Got the legs done this afternoon, might work on the driver chamber after dinner.
