Is this driver suitable for a tapped horn?
 

Hi All,

I have a 12" driver with the following specs, is it suitable for a tapped horn project?
I've tried using hornresp but it just doesn't seem to work out. Can someone give me a hand?

Fs - 19Hz
Qms - 5.1
Qes - 0.43
Qts - 0.4
SPL - 90dB @ 2.83v
BL - 10.7
Xmax - 11mm one way
VAS - 260L
Le - 1.8mH
Re - 4.2 ohm
Sd - 508cm2
Mms - 99g

It's currently being used in a ported box 220L tuned to 18Hz. Maxed out with 80W it produces 104dB @ 20Hz.
I need more bass with the same or less power.:bigsmile:

Cheers.

My only constraint is the box size, which can be 120cm high, 55cm deep, and 60cm wide.
If this one works out, I may change my two 10" sealed sub to horn loading.

Cheers
