Horn-loaded deathbox?
04/22/09 at 23:40:31
 
I've just finished my first DB 10  :D  
Still waiting for the driver to arrive.. Embarrassed

Was wondering if anyone has ever tryed attaching a horn to their deathbox?

Funktion 1 have an attachable horn called the Infra-horn for their 4th order bandpass, and its a pretty similar idea to the wicked one...

The f1 infra horn adds 8-12 db sensitivity so it could be well worth trying

What sub was you going to use? Just curious.

As for the horn idea I would haft to try it, just for kicks and giggles of course. If you are looking for higher spl you might want to try a well design ported enclosure. The DB is an excellent design but it is still a bandpass and BP enclosures have their limits.

loaded it with a cheap jbl driver about an hour ago, sounds alright considering..

ported enclosure would have higher sensitivity than a bandpass/bph.. i dont think so!

I am not saying one is better than the other but when it comes to size the BP is usually bigger and more complicated to build. A ported enclosure that can hit the same spl as the BP will be smaller and easier to build. I have both and like all of them. I enjoy the difference each one can bring to the table in response and spl.

Besides there are alot of factors not taken into account.

Environment ?
Quality of build ?
Quality of subwoofer used ?
WAF ?
Last but not least !!!               MONEY ????
