Low-Frequency Horn Design Using Thiele/Small Driver Parameters

Document Thumbnail

The design formulas for low-frequency horns which yield various physical and performance related horn data can be recast in a form which utilizes the Thiele/Small direct-radiator driver parameters. This conversion simplifies computations of items such as required back cavity volume and throat area for desired performance. Performance data such as operating bandwidth, upper rolloff frequencies and low-frequency maximum acoustic output power are easily calculated.
