Yes, the "Circlomanen Flare." Face it Johannes, you've been immortalized.

I'm also looking forward to a review of the current build. You gents might be onto something.

DIY experimenters (especially those who share) be blessed!

Well it did get built and it was a WO with 5 1/4 that was my version anyway.

another scaled WO w/ 2- 5 1/4 car woofers

http://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=Wicked;action=display;num=112...

I threw it out a couple weeks ago and figured my little 6" WO32 would be better in the trailer. I was wrong Cry
the WO32 has real subs in it and its smoother and a little lower but has no punch and does not even close to rattling the trailer.


I necked it down and used some stuffing in its last days and it was not as loud but nicer. Kinda wish I never threw it out.
thanks for reminding me.

but it was uuuuuuuugly

I wouldnt expect any foldedbasshorn to reproduce anything above 120hz. 100% of posts ive seen say that vocals sound 'funny'

Why not make HALF a WO,without any bends in it,to troubleshoot and fiddle around with it adjusting throat area etc.


Circlomanen :
two links on my site for you.

'“This simulator system needed to produce 132 dB from 5 kHz, down to 3 HZ, outdoors, 2 meters from the wall of an old house next to the air base outside Atlanta. This output required the equivalent displacement of a piston 12 feet wide and 8 feet high, moving 18inches peak to peak at 3 Hz.”'

Thank you for wonderful links! They make me want to build some realy large horns.
Im helping a friend build a 36 x 36 inch WO. We are using 1 inch MDF. Its quite heavy!!! Smiley This will be the first time I hear a "normal" WO!
Pics are probably coming up later this week.
We use two GAS silver 10 inch speakers, and a 100 watt class D plate-amp.
