Sounds like lots of fun Braggi! I wish I had a space dedicated to woodwork, that didnt involve pulling out the cars. Smiley

I thought that was a good idea to bump up the good threads
so here is the one of the best.
an oldie but a goodie and things have not changed as of yet.
But the Ip SO is on its way.
cheers

I brought it back to the top for selfish reasons.   And because I didn't want it to fall of the edge of the world, threads have a way of doing that.  This one started this whole forum.

A sound system designer named Richard Long stated in one of his papers he designed a cabinet called the Waldorf. It is similar to the JBL Double 15" scoop enclosure but is based on the Jensen Imperial design. The enclosure was designed with a hyperbolic rather than a exponential flare. Is the decware imperial design also a hyperbolic flare ?. Also if you would, please explain the difference between the two flares ?

No comment on flares, just a few tidbits about Richard Long. He was the audio engineer for Studio54 and other famous club scenes. Having died years ago, Gary Stewart has taken over where Richard left off. Arguably the best club sound in the world. http://www.gsany.com/

Shortly after this thread started, the original wav file was removed.  It is 75 megs and that equals about a months worth of posts on this forum.   Anyway, without this original file (uncut) the thread just isn't the same.  So here it is:

Concerning the preference for mismatched speakers in the Imperial, I found this exchange on the Weber Guitar Speakers Q&A page:
http://www.webervst.com/sptalk.html

From: Gerald C. Lopez
I have two 8 Ohm speakers that I can wire either parallel or series to my tube amp for an impedance of either 4 or 16 Ohm. My amp has both 4 and 16 Ohm output taps. Are there any sonic differences or benefits of series over parallel wiring or vice versa?

Gerald, connecting two speakers in parallel is an old trick to smooth out speaker response and enhance the damping of either speaker. HIFI designers took it one step further by connecting two speakers of different sizes in parallel. A speaker has a large impedance increase at its fundamental resonance, and depending on the installation, this can cause the speaker to sound boomy or out of control. By connecting two speakers in parallel, particularly two speakers of different sizes with different resonant frequencies, each speaker will tend to quench or dampen the boominess of the other. Since no two speakers are exactly alike, even with two of the same size, that damping will occur, however slight, for any speakers connected in parallel.
    For speakers connected in series, there appears to be less control, and more of what is called 'back EMF' from the speakers fed back into the output circuit. While that seems rather chaotic, many players prefer the series connection, as it gives them a more textured tone, enhanced breakup, and overall a more desireable tone for guitar work. It's totally subjective, of course, and many factors affect the end result, such as voice coil size, gap energy, closed back/open back cabinet, output circuit damping, etc.

On the subject of the high frequency horn being difficult to make; Western Electric once made a horn (model KS6368) of cloth stiffened with plaster the way a plaster cast bone splint is made.  Perhaps shaping the pattern the cloth is to be formed on would be equally as difficult as making the wooden horn, but to me it does not seem so.  
At any rate, I thought it something to consider for anyone thinking of making a treble horn.
