    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion

  2. Big Bad Boys Tapped Horn

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I wanted to make a tapped horn for garden parties and I wanted to see how much I could get with some cheap 15” drivers I had. I took the design ideas from this DIY TH. My Big Boy measures 203x61x64 with an internal volume of ca. 720 liter and throat to mouth about 380 cm. As I said the driver...
  3. Doubling the Extension of a Tapped Horn

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hello to all the gurus of hts. I'm new to hornresp and tapped horns in general, but while playing around with the t/s of my boston acoustics G512 44 (with coils wired in series for higher BL). I couldn't help wondering why it seems everyone tries to flatten the "saddle" and never tries to...
  4. 8' Tall Stereo Integrity Tapped Horn Sub HT15D2....

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    In the spirit of "more is better" and "too much is not enough" I built a tapped horn out of a Stereo Integrity HT15D2. 8' Tall ~240lbs. And capable of a ton of clean output. It took just under three sheets of plywood to build. All joints are screwed and glued with a glue cleat on every...
  5. 35hz PA Tapped Horn

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Well I have always needed an excuse to build another sub so here goes another one. I was wanting to build something that would do me well for my PA application. I had simulated quite a few different 15's. BUT after seeing what works, what does not and looking at value I decided there were two...
  6. Exodus Anarchy tapped horn problem

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I finished building the Anarchy tapped horn design by LittleMike, but am experiencing a bit of distortion during some loud bass scenes while watching some movies. This sub was built to help even out the bass throughout the room. My other sub is the THT. I am pretty sure I got the driver sealed...
  7. Tapped horn drivers; desirable qualities?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm looking down the road a bit to start planning on a new subwoofer project & thinking about a tapped horn, perhaps even Josh Ricci's Othorn. That said, my current driver is a B&C 21SW115-8 in a 257L BR. I am new to Hornresp, but if I've input everything correctly with that driver, the response...
  8. Looking into building Tapped Horn sub

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I am thinking about building a tapped horn sub. I would some input on what driver parameters would make an acceptable driver to use in this sort of design. I have a driver laying around I would like to play around with already. The driver is an Infinity Reference 1260w with the following...
  9. Tapped Horn - TC Sounds Epic 12.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Howdy fellas. I didn't take any pictures during the build process, mostly because the Tapped Horn design I followed has been well documented here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/subwoofers/143714-lab12-tapped-horn.html I substituted the Lab12 driver for the TC Sounds Epic 12, as it has more of...

  13. FUTURE MAL-X 18" Gen II Build Advice - Tapped Horn?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have an 18" MAL-X Gen II build in a 24" sealed cube (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/sealed-subwoofer-build-projects/19146-another-sealed-mal-x-build.html) that has outlived its original purpose. When built it was to be my only sub, but as things work - curse you all - it is no longer...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    New to the forum but have been poking around for quite some time. Here is my first monster tapped horn subwoofer build! :hsd: Original plans were from this thread over at diyAudio. Plans were meant for a Lab12 but a quick check with HornResp showed that my Dayton worked equally well :whistling...
  15. Tang Band Tapped Horn flat pack build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I always wanted to build a Tapped Horn sub to see what there all about. The angles and horn folding looks pretty confusing and aside from a few minutes messing with Hornresp I never put the time to figure these things out. Well, looks like I don't have to learn hornresp as I just bought a sweet...
  16. Any DIY Tapped Horns similar to DTS-20 (footprint and frequency response)?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    :wave: 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 :hsd: frequency response, and also like that it employs a single 12" driver. Does anyone know of a design/cab that is...

    Here goes my build of two tapped horn subs based on the drawings floating around out there in cyber space. I have read everything I can on the various DIY builds similar to the TH-SPUD. I plan on incorporating all the good ideas I managed to absorb in my own build. Note of caution, I am a...
  20. Tapped Horn In 3 Dimensions?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Has anyone tried to fold a Tapped Horn in 3 dimensions? All of the Tapped horns that I have seen all seem to be folded along one axis. This makes sense as it is the easiest way of folding. I have an area that is no more than 2' x 2' x 8' that I might be able to talk the missus into letting me...
