8*IB15 infinite baffle to help bass horn

    Hi,
    Here is a short description of my sub bass project which is finished now.

    This is my previous horn system, flat downto 55Hz, and uneven below 55Hz, it required some more sub bass:

    So it decided to install 8*15 inch drivers to cover 16Hz-55Hz. Here is the simulation:

    So now the drivers are arrived, very quick travel from US to Europe. I installed them on top of the bass horns:

    Rear view:

    Then measurements. First there were not very good because of a room null at the listening position. To solve it I had to put another 15 inch IB15 driver in 210 liter sealed box in a rear corner of the room. And finally here is the total frequency response, 7*IB15 in a infinite baffle load + 1 IB15 in 210 liters + bass horn + filters but without EQ:

    It really improved the sound, it is as fast as it used to be but very low frequencies are just fine now!

    Then I just had to hide the drivers, sorry John:

    Hi Vincent,

    Looks very good. I appreciate you posting your results here. Also, in an unrelated topic, there was someone else over in Europe who had experimented with cement horns and various other materials. I cannot find the link to his site now. I know he had referenced your site with the round horns you had done. Do you know who this is and where his site would be?

    Hi John,
    That’s probably Marco, a friend:

    He lives in Europe like me, but he also lives 30 minutes from my home!
