So far I have the shape of horn as stl(in the link).

Still need to work on phase plug.
I need help in measuring the speaker as on the images: Every 3 cm is good enough.


Have fun. Feel free to check for mistakes. So far I know there is missing 1.8cm length in simulation on size of plywood in front of driver.

Anyone has b&c 8pe21 to show or measure? In England?
Actually it should be enough to measure how far is the dustcap from front.

What are you trying to achieve with the horn design? The sims you've done show a very wide dispersion and a change of 35 degrees in half an octave lower is quite sudden.

:) I have no goal tbh. Just something that will fit exactly Xtro, may be more universal.
Arent those frequencies where every horn gets directional?
So is it good approach?

Not a well designed one, no. A good speaker has consistent pattern control to at least 800-1k, ideally lower. Otherwise half your vocal is immediately subject to reflections or comb filtering.

You would likely do better to decide your design goals and build to that. It would also help to have directivity plots of the HF and LF sections to ensure a smooth transition.

I know of one builders' three way horn loaded cabinet that has HF exactly 60 but the mid horn starts at 90 and ends up at 160 by 400hz, and it's horrendous in multiples.

Here is the original one from https://freespeakerplans.com/forum/38-hosted-plans/5431-x-tro
I see the problem. Conical horn seems to control dispersion better(smaller difrences in frequency change).
