different size WO
05/05/06 at 03:27:29
 
well...i decided to dismantle my previous box to build a WO

but...the box size is 41" (104 CM) x 21.25" (54 CM) x 13"

can i still have good results with this numbers?

i know these aren't the needed dimensions but it's what i have...

the wood is 20 mm mdf...

i have 2 pyramid pw1086 to use..

It shouldn't particularly matter (WITHIN REASON) what shape the box is.  As long as the front and back chambers are the same volume and the horn flare expands at the same rate, starting with the same size throat (as the original) and proceeding to the same size mouth you should get similar results.

well...i don't know which parts of the horn must stay the same....so i think i won't do it for now...

maybe someday i'll buy some tens and give the box a try, or something like that...

it's a very complex design and i don't have the correct size required...

the horn opening would be bigger, the volume smaller, the mouth area would be bigger.....a completely different box.

Basically, when you look at the WO, the Horn has to be the same.  so the throat width to the opening.  The compression and sealed chamber should be the same size, but you can move them around to fit.
