  1. Thanks! My first build (the big cuts were done by the carpentry, just had to do the speaker, middle brace and handles holes) and the first drivers I ever bought ahah. The DIY way makes me discover a lot of things! I like the look they have, the varnish tinted them in yellow, that was a great surprise, it gives them a vintage touch! My last coat was drying yesterday, hope the weather will be fine next week-end!
  2. Mines are almost ready as well, just have to put one more varnish coat, put the driver (21DS115-4) in and measure them ! Will post everything there as soon as I'll have the time to setup everything and when the weather will get better here.
  3. @Droogne It would lower the rear chamber volume and then the bass reflex tuning would go up. If others can confirm. You'll not reach 30hz if you reduce the depth, maybe 35hz with 70cm but with 60cm, you're losing a lot. You can edit the hornresp sim to see what you're gonna lose exactly.
  4. @Ricci Alright, I was drawing the slots and thought "That doesn't sound good". Gonna put them on the sides. Thanks!
  5. Hi ! I'm building my Skrams and just wondered, is there any issue to put handles in vents ? I want to put 2x Adam Hall 3402 to the bottom of my Skrams but they would be right in the vents, reducing quite a lot the area of it to a specific point (around the middle of the vents)
  6. Wood and B&C 21DS115-4 on their way ! 2 Skrams should be up in France before the end of the month
  7. Hey @jay michael now that you built Skrams, would you say they are fast enough for psytrance ? Especially compared to your Othorn ? I plan to play a lot of reggae and dub music but it will certainly have to play some psytrance during the night Thanks again ! Enjoy you news cabs
  8. Of course those help ! It's just quite hard to believe that this cab can do the job of a sub and a kickbin ! And that it possibly do it even better. I really want it to be real ahah, I'm in holidays in 2 weeks, so I have 2 weeks to make my decision between Othorn + ES18BPH or the Skram ! I like the ES18BPH sound, may not be everyone taste btw.
  9. Can't make my mind between Othorn or Skram. At first I was going for 2xOthorn + 2xES18BPH to cover 27.5hz - 110hz, so Othorn playing on one octave (27.5hz - 55hz) and the ES18 on another one (55hz - 110hz). But then the Skram comes out and offer me the possibility to cover those 2 octaves with only one bin + the possibility to tune it lower for movies. That means : - Less amplifiers - Less cabs so less speakers, cables, storage difficulty etc - Less phase problems - Easier building and less wood required I would save a lot of money, almost enough to build two others Skrams quickly. The only thing I'm afraid of is the Skram "kick" power, is it something I should care about ? I like the ES18 kick but it does it with light Mms drivers, the skram would kick with a 412gr Mms (B&C 21DS115-4). @jay michael review makes me hesitate even more ahah. Is the Skram far away of an Othorn + ES18BPH combo ?
  10. Here is a 3D Sketchup file for the Skram if someone is interested. Bracing is missing. It's rounded for metric units but it should not change that much compared to the original one : Became : 610mm x 813mm x 915mm Skram.skp
  11. Based on your fresh hornresp inputs and your measured B&C 21DS115-4 T&S, it looks different of your simulations in page 2, is it normal ? Which one should we consider for now ? It's the same for the LaVoce, higher sensitivity with those inputs. Gonna wait for some more measurements but if this one is around 98dB/99dB for 1W/1m as shown in the new simulation, I'll go for it instead of Othorn !
  12. Hello ! @jay michael Your last measurements has been done with 1 cab ? @Ricci How close is it to the simulation (21SW152-4) ? I expect to build 2 Othorns next month but the Skram looks like a real contender, what sensitivity should I expect for 1 Skram, 21DS115-4 loaded ? My aim is to get the highest output between 25hz and 70hz , can't make up my mind between Othorn or Skram...

    The PaleHorn

    Hello ! Just wondering, is the Palehorn still a thing @Ricci ? I'm planning to build 2 Othorns next month (21DS115-4 loaded) but maybe it would be worth it to wait a bit longer and build some Palehorn as an Othorn V3 if you plan to release it ? Thanks
  14. Alright, thanks for the clarification @m_ms ! Actually, I like the Skram for its design, it's an original cab compared to the Othorn which looks more like a "classic" tapped horn. Another good point for it, is the fact that the driver is hidden, I expect to use those cabs in a sound system, I wouldn't have to be afraid of beers or malicious people. But the Othorn is quite perfect for 25hz-70hz + it has a higher sensitivity on that band. I think I prefer +3 dBs than a fully protected driver, otherwise you need more cabs and the cost + the building time + the logistic, make it a clear choice to me. But who knows, maybe with real life measurements, the Skram will change my mind and won't be so far away !
  15. Hello ! Does someone expect to measure a Skram soon ? I aim to build 2 Othorns in August but maybe a Skram could be an alternative. I saw the Ricci's simulations but @m_ms talks about 100dB sensitivity where the sims shows 97dB. I'm looking for the best output between 25hz and 70hz, should I go for two Othorns or two Skrams ?
