that is a blast from the past!  I built those way back when... Radio Shack RS-1197....

I actually preferred the larger RS-1354... but both were volume limited.. I ended up using a forward 1354 and a rear facing 1354.. and low pass crossed the rear and used it for baffle step compensation... at least I think I crossed it over... man... been a while...

all that was right before I abandoned direct radiators.. figured I would spend a "few months" investigating horns... bwahahahhaa!!!!

Oh, that does look like fun! Any ideas about what I might use for drivers? A list member kindly offered me two of the Radio Shack drivers, which I plan to take him up on, though the massive Canadian post bill for them is anathema. I wouldn't mind paying him, but giving the money to the post? Well...

Just another John

I have used Martin King's design process multiple times for tapered quarter wave transmission line speakers. Though he has done extensive math, and his Math-CAD is now proprietary, it is not really necessary to use it, if you read and understand his articles and analysis from the early part of this century. I don't find my favorite design of his, that uses a couple of little Fostex (from Radio Shack on closeout around 2002...) FR drivers in a folded tapered line, with one angled of the top/back corner and the other front-firing. These are in front of me, but the images are gone from the ethersphere these days.

Ah, Found It!
