Ricci's Skhorn Subwoofer & Files

263 posts in this topic

Hi, 

 

Being reading through your web site, forums and threads on other forums. Very interesting designs and exceptional dedication to measurements,

Thank you for your time and effort!. 

 

I am very interested in this design and in particular the development of single cone version.

I find I often end up loading the van/stacking by my self and have really been enjoying single driver bass bins recently. 

 

I am looking forward to seeing how this works out.

Single driver version?

 

Have you looked into the Othorn design?

Ricci has discussed designing a single driver version of the Skhorn, possibly slightly larger than simply cutting the current design in half, but still small than the Othorn. 

 

I have of course, studied many Othorn threads and it looks great.

Thanks for the kind words Sol.

 

I'm planning to work on the half version but I haven't had much time lately. Testing season has started back up and it's going to be a busy year. Hopefully I can work on it fairly soon.

Oh really? Well then... Looks like I won't have to drag one with me next time you have a GTG then. Works for me. ;)

"Get one of these bad boys going pronto" has a direct translation to "Dangit Josh, hurry up and get tired of your skhorn and just bring it to me"

I just attached the plans to the first post for anyone that wants them.

 

I've had 3 or 4 other people request these plans over in Europe. Hopefully there will be some more documented builds coming up.

Good evening everyone I have two questions about the SK horn . 1 can it play up 125/150 hz and do your think that 2 crest cpx3800 bridge in by amp be enough to run B&C 21ds115 ?

Anyone have a CNC guy that can cut these at a reasonable price in the Midwest?  i'm located in St. Louis, MO and willing to drive to pickup.  Just moved into the new house and ready to piss off the neighbors.

Yes it can play up to 125Hz.I wouldn't run it as high as 150 ideally. It is really intended for below 100Hz as a subwoofer. It depends a bit on the drivers used as well. The 21Ipal drivers are smooth up until around 150Hz but the 21DS115 I expect may be a bit more choppy above 100Hz. Either way if running up that high you would definitely want to EQ down the peak at 215Hz and use a sharp 24dB/octave if not 36 or 48dB low pass for best sound quality and transition to the mains. Don't get me wrong it will melt your face off at 125-150Hz but the response gets real choppy not too far above 150 and it is best to avoid those out of band peaks being audible.

Here is the expected response with the 21DS115. This isn't a real measurement set yet. Just a projection so don't take it as absolute. If this is close you would want to use 2 bands of EQ to bring down the 215Hz peak and also the bump near 125. I'll see if I can whip up the same with the 21SW152.
