HORN THEORY   -   CHAPTER INDEX

Preamble

These papers are not going to guide one through a step by step procedure in the construction of a horn. The intent is to inform the reader of the considerations involved in such an endeavour.

It is suggested that before embarking on such a venture the reader be adept at determining the Theile/Small parameters of a moving coil loudspeaker. Many manufacturers provide these parameters with their drivers. However, not all the required parameters may accompany every driver. In that case, the reader should know how to determine that which is needed.

Also, it is justifiably assumed that any bass horn constructed for home use will be of the folded variety unless one has one heck of a large listening room. These papers make no attempt as to where and how to fold a horn as the things that can influence folding are too numerous to cover.

There will be no mysterious mathematics such as Fourier Transforms to decorate the text contained herein. There are two reasons for that decision. One is that it will render this article unreadable by many and that information is beyond the scope of this text as well as my knowledge, which takes me to the second reason; I know nothing about Fourier Transforms. If you, the reader, have a good knowledge of high school mathematics and algebra then you'll find this text to be written in English.
