Give a look at diyaudio subwoofer forum, there is a thread about "30Hz tapped horn" that contains 21 inch designs and ideas.
The Othorn is the 21 tapped horn I d like to hear... And danley 221.
Am over there already been reading alot over the last few months, I got Josh’s Othorn on the table as we speak, I like a balanced setup so the cab should be about 950mm deep or more cause the martin’s are like 930mm , I don’t like the kicks sticking out over the subs , lots of the designs, on there have maybe wrong size for me or don’t go low . Our Br’s which is my design do 25hz so I want to stay down there , Danley most too much , I don’t copy stuff from pro companies, unless they are 20years old and I get a thumbs up, from designers. I got a drawing or two of my own, so I needed abit of inspiration. That’s all , i’ve Heard the Danley 18” , sounded very clean and low kind of sound you fall in love with. If you get what I mean . 

hi Father-Francis, 

I'm running othorn + martin215mk3 combo for some time already, send me a pm if interested 

they fit really well! 

Cheers Ivan 

Really nice!

Combo works great! I experiment a lot with eletronic/acoustical crossover points and results just keep getting more interesting. The only downside for many people is that combo like this is impossible to tune by ear - you really have to spend time measuring boxes and figure out how they work, especially together

I spent a long time modelling and drawing this design but never got round to building a prototype. It's 21" and 1220*850*610mm. Probably only does 35Hz but was designed to optimise max output per unit volume. Uses two sheets of wood plus another half sheet for bracing and double thickness mouth walls. I was going to mount the driver on a separate baffle to provide clearance and so that different throat arrangements could be tried. If anyone wants to experiment with a new design I can send the .dwg file

Are you set on a tapped horn?

I've been messing about with ideas for a 21" ported horn that is coming together nicely. It really seems to shine with the 21DS115  driver, but I can try and make a few adjustments see how your driver will go in it. 

I'm gonna pull up an old thread I started about it later today and get some people's thoughts.

Ported & tapped horns are both BP6's!

Ported horn = parallel tuned BP6.
Tapped horn = series tuned BP6.
