A boundary-element model is used to analyze the acoustic behavior of a folded horn. Results from the boundary-element model are compared with measurements of the throat radiation impedance and the far-field acoustic response. Further analysis shows how a oneparameter model can be derived from the boundary-element results and used to gain insight into the behavior of the folded-horn loudspeaker system. It is shown that a one-parameter model can be used to describe the behavior of the folded horn over a useful frequency range.
