Hello, my name is Jeff Robinson
This is my much improved homepage, Kaizen! My hobby is loudspeaker enclosure design and construction, I have built about 4 dozen pair ranging from tiny 1/8th cubic foot babies to 25 cubic foot ported monsters whose response extends below 14Hz. and bass horns as well as vented and sealed. I am getting inquiries about building enclosures, my big horns are expensive to ship, you are welcome to build a limited number (usually 4 maximum) of my designs posted here, only for personal use unless licensed, please. I fixed the guestbook problem.Shimatsu
Thank you Rad for the good web design suggestions.
Here are two of my horn designs. I draw in Turbo, save with screencapture. I like canoeing and camping, see below. I will be building 2 midbass & 4 bass horns to try them out (I'm working on new bass & midbass designs to match some new/old horns I got). I've got some 8" JBL D208 & Pioneer NR806FG-1,  EVM10M's, DL10X's, 8 MCM 55-1880, 55-2325, Gauss 5842's (choices!) for this project. Click on an image to link to a high resolution construction plan. I have added auxiliary flare extender accessory cabinets to my horn gallery. This is also where there are a few photos of projects. I've designed a 33"h x 46"sq cabinet for a single 18", good for 1 in a corner or 2 out on a floor, a big front chamber flattens response
& lowers cutoff frequency.
Warning-use of 28Hz horn as 40 Hz horn has troughs of -1dB @ 77Hz & -2dB @ 52Hz. (as 56Hz much worse)

While I do show the midbass as having a 100 Hz flare rate, each set of 3 is actually only usable to 120 Hz. I used the lower frequency to offset  exponential roll off. In my setup I plan to start with a x-over of 140 Hz @ 24dB/oct. Arrays of three are flexible  to set up - vertical stack for long throw, horizontal array for short throw applications. I hope this is a  design plus rather than a minus. See gallery for new midbass designs.

The first large cabinets I built (in 1975) were a modification of the Classic, I extended one end 2.25" to allow putting a JBL D208 in the space between the last flare and the cabinet edge. I wound inductors for 300 Hz x-overs from 18 gauge, they had a 2.5 ohm resistance, ugly but I think they prevented blowing the cheap woofers I originally loaded them with. A good friend's father helped a lot with a woodworking shop based around a Shopsmith. I have a little 8" B&D tablesaw (built into a 4'x6' table), drillpress, router, orbital and belt sanders, circular and jig saws. Lots of pipe clamps are de riguer. Now I have a Powermatic 64A 10" tablesaw with 50" ripping capacity unifence!
Along the bottom are three commercial horn designs. The University Classic, EV TL4025 & TL4050. These are scans of 25 year old copies of free versions and the EV were spliced together from two imperfectly aligned scans. I cleaned them up to a point that started to lose detail and had to stop there. These also are a click to get construction plan link (40k to 50K).
