Hey, I'm hoping to find plans for Ghorn and Othorn, can't seem to find them anywhere. Thanks in advance  ^_^

 

Files posted. I've been meaning to do that for a long time.

Hey Ricci, do you do any builds of these for other people, or offer flat packs of any sort? I'm not too far away in Nashville, could easily come to you.

Hhahahahaha! Sorry I'm not laughing at you at all. It's just that I can't even get time to build my own cabs anymore. I pay someone else to do it.

That said there are people out there who can do this type of work and will for the right amount of money.

Anyway welcome to the forum. :)

Just out of interest (who knows what the future brings), how many man hours did you have to pay for the horns you had build? With these plans on a first build.

It was never billed out in man hours to me for any of the cabs I've had built. We just negotiated a labor price on top of the raw materials costs up front. I never searched for someone to build any of my cabs either. It just kind of happened that I know some fellow DIYers who were willing to work on them for reasonable prices.

I had the Othorns, Gjallarhorns built by one guy. The MAUL's by someone else and the Skhorn's most lately by member DSL1. I covered materials+ shipping+enough extra to cover some labor each time, but I probably got quite the hookup on some of the labor charges. In fact I know that I did.  Just the wood, duratex, glue, wire, screws, handles and shipping on a pair of any of these is substantial. The labor hours are also substantial. You can save a LOT of money by doing it yourself but be prepared to put the hours in. If you would rather have a pro or someone with a full on cabinet shop and all the tools build them, it will cost. 

If you need to discuss in more detail we should take it to PM.

And then whatever number you come up with for dollars or hours, double or triple it. :)

These designs seem to be different than what was tested on the measurement / analysis - bench-marking page. Can anyone help me locate performance specs of Ricci's designs?

Both appear to be fantastic, but I want to building these (with 21" b&c's) as low end support for bass shows at a venue with all ready existing 15" drivers... which makes it seem like the g-horn might fit the need of the space better given the existing system. 

 

Thanks guys, 

Andy

 

EDIT: it appears the data is for the version 1 ?

Yes data is for version 1. I never built and tested v2. It should offer some minor improvements but they are incremental not game changing. Acoustic performance differences should be relatively minor. I'd suggest the Othorn or Skhorn for live sound or reinforcement.
