Wow, impressive. I'd love to see how this turns out. Plan to throw in a couple of 21" IPALs in those?  :D

What gave it away? Hah.

 

Looks like Mr. dsl1 is going to have the very first one made. He's got some 21SW152's. Not sure what amps he has but even an Inuke 3k should make a lotta bass.

Are you doing a single? Going to run drivers in parallel or in series? 4ohm or 8 ohm drivers?

Awesome! Will this have higher pressure in the throat than the Othorn? Seems like that space between the drivers could smash stuff at full power.

An educated guess maybe?  :D

 

21SW152's ought to do fantastically well. When I ended up discussing about moving the JBLs and cabinets out from under my center channel, Infrasonic ended up suggesting I just use a third Othorn in their place. I ended up suggesting the Skhorn would make a fine piece, but I don't think I have the width space.  :unsure:  I guess I could dream anyway.  :lol:

Less pressure in the throat actually. 2 drIvers with 2x the throat area but the drivers are not pushed as hard individually. Plus the horn doesn't load down as far.

Made some dust today.

Need to order a part for the CNC that broke, so I won't be doing any more cutting until it shows up. Probably next week.

 

I have the 4ohm SW152's. I don't think the clone amp likes 2ohm loads. Luke's answer would be to just buy a speakerpower amp...

Wire them in a series and bridge the clone...or buy a speakerpower  :D

Just need some IKEA fasteners and you're set. :)

Do you need to put the whole inside together first, then inset it into the bottom? Looks like the horizontal panels and all of those channels would prevent you from assembling from the bottom up.

Looking forward to the results. Don't you also have an Othorn to compare to?

I must have forgot about this thread altogether. I think for a alternative driver that is very budget friendly the BC 18TBW100 is the best value. I like how the 18SW115 sims better for my simulations though. I have a pair of the SW115's on there way now for my TH50 clones. I still have my SW152 sitting in the shed waiting for whatever project to start.

 

Have you tested this sub yet? I am curious how it performs with the different tunings. I will have to compare how this does verse my pair of 18SW115 TH50 clones. I imagine it will do great for its BW and may come close to my TH50's on the lower registers. Maybe not will have to look.

 

Can I get the plans for this Ricci?

 

Should I just send an email to you?

Assembly should be pretty easy. I think I'll just go left to right dropping pieces into the dados on the bottom ->  pop the top on. Until it's screwed / glued together there is enough wiggle room it'll go together fine. The top on the Othorn with the dados was a bit more challenging with all the internal pieces that you couldn't reach. With this one between the hatches, the ports, and the throat it should be easy to get the top lined up.

 

My friend took the Othorn I built with him to California along with the one he built when I did my Gjallarhorns. I had it for a few months but no longer. We were planning to build four more Othorns but then this popped up. Probably end up with 3-4 of the SKhorns instead between us.

 

@Ricci - Samps noticed that the hornresp you posted for the SW152's dropped off quite a bit higher than your original post. Is that just the difference between the SW152 and the IPALs or is something else at play?
