Any DIY Tapped Horns similar to DTS-20 (footprint and frequency response)?

I've done many searches here and on several forums, but haven't been able to find a tapped horn similar to the DTS-20. I like it's 18"x20" footprint, 18-150Hz -3dB frequency response, and also like that it employs a single 12" driver. Does anyone know of a design/cab that is similar to the DTS-20?

I'm aware of lilmike's Shiva x2 tapped horn design. I like it very much, but would like to find a design that utilizes a 12" driver that cost less than $200 ($150 would be ideal) as I'd like to build 2-4 of them.

THT LP is close to that footprint, rolls off under 20 Hz, not sure how high it goes. Can be built with a 15 or 12.

The THT is a front loaded horn and unfortunately needs to be corner loaded. But you're right, the footprint of the low profile version is close.

Normally you don't get that large of a pass-band from a tapped horn. I'm still hunting for an 8 inch option for a tapped horn.

I noticed PE is selling a TC Sounds 8" with 23mm x-max. I haven't modeled it...
