3-Way Horn System

This combination of readily available and easy made items is the result of 5 years of iterations. The aim was getting best audio-reproduction realism in a dinning-room with reasonable cost. And time is pretty cheap for an DIY amateur.

A pair of 70Hz down-scaled "Show Horns" by Bruce Edgar were combined with 90x40 trumpets. Digital processing was used to cope with acoustic path mismatch, crossover duty and room-correction. Class-D power modules were preferred while output autoformers adapt professional equipment range to home usage.

Multiple 6th-order subwoofers were deployed after Earl Geddes method. Tactile transducers were provisioned under the coach for greater impact on movies and music (piano, percussion).

  • Thank you both for the kind words!

    @Ray
    If I would ever have a bigger room, my system will look most like your uncompromised system.
