I'll make you a deal.

You tell me what you are using to do the folds for your horns, and I'll help you tweak them.

re: Horn Sub Input Please - Build In Progress!

I hates Sketchup!

But a deal is a deal.

What are you trying to maximize in your setup?

Overall I like your folds, very well done.

So what are you hoping to achieve in this setup of boxes?

SPL will be insane to say the least.

re: Horn Sub Input Please - Build In Progress!

Not so much looking for peak SPL, but to do a distributed sub setup to even out room modes and smooth out the frequency response without using PEQ filters, and to use low powered amps, like 20-30 watts a channel for reference level. The plan is to run into a miniDSP 10x10 which has crossover, matrix, and PEQ filters.

I will be matrixing the LFE signal and LCR channels with their respective flanking subs which will smooth out there midbass response. After the lower crossover point they will be LFE subs only, they will then cross with the ULF LFE subs which will be located 2 at the front and under the rear seating riser.

re: Horn Sub Input Please - Build In Progress!

A quick bit of advice on the low frequency box.

This is to be a tapped horn I take it.

One thing you find in working in real rooms versus sim land is that a flat response in sim land will be greatly overblown in the real world. I have found that you can tailor the response of a sub to behave with a flat response in a real room.

The method used is to incorporate a bit of a falling response.

Advise taken, I am using 1/2 space sim in hornresp, so I assumed that would be close to in room...?

Music, home theater or both?

Home construction. You are using metric so I'm guessing you are not from the Us of A.

Homes constructed with timber framing behave a little differently to those done in blocks and bricks.

This will be one interesting room to be in that's for sure.

re: Horn Sub Input Please - Build In Progress!

Dedicated theater room, and for music but I would say 80% movies. It is in a basement, framed inside of concrete walls, with Z channel and 5/8 drywall, also has concrete ceiling, so pretty solid.

I am in Ontario, Canada, and use imperial most of the time, but hornresp outputs metric so just going with the flow!
