Looks pretty interesting... I'm pretty clueless as to how it all works though...

Cool. Was thinking of a horn for my HT system. I think the front loading horns are better because you get that quick slap for DVD type bass. IMO, when the driver is deep within the folding like your first horns, the sound is muffled and not as quick. Did you hear that too?

Is there software for folded horns and other complex boxmodelling for free?

you are talking about rear loaded horns...

where you see the front of the woofer, and the horn loads of the back of it...

the response of these isn't as tight, as the woofer isn't mounted in a small sealed enclosure, like my horns are, the only reason to do a rear loaded horn, is if you need/want a higher frequency response, as a horn like mine has no response above like 200Hz.

rear loaded horns are generally used in PA applications, where they wish to cross a horn loaded woofer, over with a horn loaded tweeter.

the response of my horns is extremely punchy, as the woofer is in a small sealed box (about 20 litres for the 12inch subs) and isn't muffled at all.

its like, the SQ of a sealed box, with the SPL of 6 of the woofers in ported boxes :p

tehre's a program called "hornresp" just google for it, but I'm not going to help you use it :p

already helped some bastard, designed a horn for him, which he made, did 143dBs in a VAN, with a single 13 year old 12inch JL audio sub, and now he claimes he designed it? :cwm13::cwm22:

anywya, goodluck with the program :p
