I'm probably around the same age but had a late start.
A priceless scene in any case.
I had built a tall rack mount cabinet to put test equipment in but my youngest adopted it as a "storefront" so i had to wait some years before putting gear in it haha.
Fwiw, i have mentioned your son a couple times at the shop, they may be needing more help this spring.
Gorgeous little girl in a gorgeous horn! As a grandfather who builds speakers I can easily imagine what a double whammy of gratification you must get showing the two together.
If you don't mind me asking, what is the design cut off frequency of the horn?
I've used it with coaxial driver and as bass horn. Bass to 35hz it does roll off before this but output at 35hz is still strong below that pretty much nothing. Sometimes I use a front loaded sub bass horn below 40hz. I also use the conical in a 4 way conical front horn system below 100hz. Pretty much how its running now. Fostex t500Amk2, conical midrange and midbass then the big conical below 100hz. I can switch it back to coaxial use in about 30 mins. Depends on my mood and music tastes at the time.
Still a spry 47. I started early my older son was such a techno nerd. Always building faster computers messin with his loudspeakers etc instead of the ladies. The next thing I know hes heading to GA got married then 2 grand-kids, my heads still spinning. But truly the GK are better than the kids makes you feel like you accomplished something once GKs arrive hope you experience this someday. When I design for my own use I must consider 1 autistic son, 2 GK, 2 Mastiffs. So things must be designed near like playground equipment.
