  1. Horn subs?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Just curious, are the exodus audio drivers suitable for horn type subs (I know nothing about the horn subs or their various types - but I think it was called a tuba sub). I was trying to search for the thread that I saw where a guy said his horn sub (15") totally eclipsed his LLT sub in all...

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    This IS the ultimate home theater subwoofer under $6000. Four of these handle the low end for the entire Omnimax Theater in Chicago! In room with a Behringer EP2500 I have measured over 129db at listening position. The power is endless. This is the fastest, cleanest, loudest (BRUTAL IMPACT)...
  3. HDTV Folded Horn conversion

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Our home has never had a good place to locate a woofer in the TV area. The rear screen 55 inch projection TV in the family room was built into a custom cabinet. Whatever new TV was contemplated would have to fit the furniture, not the other way around. When the old TV was replaced by a flat...
  4. FS: Danley Sound Labs TH-50 tapped horn subwoofer

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    Too many hobbies, not enough money to go around. I love cars and love home theater. I like to go overboard with both. I just added a supercharger to my Cobra, and now need to upgrade the transmission/clutch. The money will have to come from the sale of my beloved TH-50. This IS the ultimate...
  5. Where do I go wrong? Please help

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Maybe this is a bit off topic, but since everybody here is interested in subwoofers..... I did the folowing thought experiment: In a shoebox-shaped room a subwoofer is placed at one side of the room and another one at the opposite site of the room. The subwoofers are of the closed box type and...

  7. Another sub horn

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Anybody have experience with relatively traditional sub horns? I have a pair of original Adire Tempests that I'm trying to figure out what I should do with. I bought the plans from Bill Fitzmaurice for his Tuba-HT horns. I've never built any horns, and I'm trying to decide if it's worth the...

  9. Tapped Horn Build TH-SPUD

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    For an exercise I have decided to build a Tapped Horn. Tapped Horns for those unfamiliar are the latest brainchild of Tom Danley, who has brought sound to the world in ways others have never thought of. Some of his designs include Servo Drive, Unity Horn, Synergy Horn, and Tapped Horn. At any...
  10. Horn tweeters V.S. aluminum dome tweeters

    Home Audio Speakers
    Which tweeter provides the bigger sweet spot, the horn tweeter or an aluminum dome tweeter? My local high-end theater equipment store just told me on the phone that horn tweeters have a very narrow listening area, while dome tweeters have a much wider sweet spot. In contrast, I found a few...

    Lately I have gotten enamored of the Tapped Horn design. Only one person/company does it, Tom Danley and he is puportedly patenting the design. His specs sound too good to be true. After I finsh the center channel speaker I'm working on, I may have to go to Home Depot and pick up some...
