In Reply to: RE: Horn mouth shape ? posted by Br3098 on May 13, 2012 at 17:33:46
Br3098: thanks for the post and the link. I think it fair to predict that an elliptical horn will be similar to a rectangular horn in that it will have tw0 primary dispersion angles no? I would think the elliptical horn would have a smoother transition. I was more interested in finding out what difference if any a square mouth would have Vs a round mouth with both horns having the same angle of dispersion. The Square horn would be a little lager in mouth are due to the corners. From the feedback so far it seems that there would not be much if any difference. Thanks again. Best regards Moray James.
I met with Dave at his home on Saturday night to listen to his new Yield speakers. He builds his own horns, both square and elliptical, so I would bet that he could build you whatever size you want. The elliptical horns are designed to attenuate certain problems with limited room sizes and boundary issues.
Dave is a great guy. Shoot him a not and engage him in a discussion. I'm sure that you will get a quick, intelligent answer. BTW - as Norman has mentioned Dave is all over the Klipsch forum.
Thanks for the post and sorry for the delay in responding. I think that shipping the size of horn I would like would get too expensive. I would like to have a horn somewhere in the range of 24 - 28 inches in diameter. Best regards Moray James.
That's the one. Do a search on the klipsch forum.
Norman: thanks. I am pretty sure that Dave does not build horns as large as I would like to go and even if he did the shipping would be insane. I am on my own here looking for large local used speakers or building myself. I saw a pair of Peavey CH-942qt the other day which looked interesting 17.5"x13.5". They looked very nice wish they were even larger. I have been wondering about buying a used horn with the throat geometry I could use and then chopping off the too small mouth and building on a new larger mouth. Has anybody here done this? Thanks, best regards Moray James.
$289 free shipping, jbl 2418h plus 2374 horn, 14 day return policy. Too bad You can't put a larger driver on the horn. Maybe a real shop could, then you could cross maybe 600hz.
not related to me, not my stuff for sale. Just something I've been keeping my eye on.
