JWC Bass Horn

Recommended Posts

Yes.  I will be swapping to the eminence is time. I want the effiecncy. 104db sounds awesome. 

The cheap woofers simply hammered. I haven't heard bass like that since Dave's yields. The difference is that the punch kit gives me the horn loaded sound I love so much. 

 

I wonder if if it would be considered a dipole. As it's ported as horn loaded ?

No... didn't need. I dont want 20-30hz bass... they was strong articulate 30hz and up bass. Think Dave has running 30-600. The mid range driver was not  to my liking but the bass was breathtaking.

Not sure but JWC's designs are killer. I have three of his builds. Top notch.

Super easy veneer job too if one wanted to dress them up a bit.

I got some goodies. I'm out of room but we just finished our exterior house remodel. This means I start on my ultimate music room in the attic. Then I'll have room for big stuff 8-) Maybe put some 18's in the snails and use them as horn loaded bass for the dual 12 tratrix horns... The madness continues....

 

Thanks JC!

They are AWESOME. I ran them with a passive line level crossover with no sub 80(no sure)-600hz for the tractrix and k403 from 600-18k.. No eq required. I love it. So simple so good.

I remember those.  I'm lucky I got to hear most of the JWC repertoire before it went to other places.

Dave has this CNC thing down.  The kits are fantastic.  A novice can put this together. 

I have a few steps left and the horn(s) part will be done and will conclude the "kit part of the build".   Then I will publish a little video.

I was fortune to listen to those dual 12" tractrix horns.  Made me a believer in straight horns.  In your face IMPACT.

HB, just a comment about the T-nuts;  If you ever have an issue with a woofer mounting screw binding, you can always run a tap through the t-nut to clean up the threads. A t-handle and a tap won't set you back much at all.

So is there a price for this kit yet?  Or plans for DIY?  Maybe I missed the measurements somewhere.  What was the $22ea woofers used?

So if this cabinet is built as a sealed version, it has a little less bass response than the Belle with a single 15" but, done as a rear ported, it extends down to 40Hz.  Correct?  Are those 4" diameter ports that are used?   Were they tried as front firing versus rear?  I remember the KLF-30's (rear ported) sounded like crap on low end in my living room whereas the front firing ports on my CF-3's shine. It was night and day difference between the two so the KLF's were sold off.  My seating position is right at 12 feet away in my living room.
