We have had this question pop up quite a few times,ie,"have you got plans for a 2350 radial horn case?"

Ok,this is an idiot's guide to show just how easy it is to knock-up a simple HF horn box,you dont need any plans,or any fancy tools,made these last weekend with a jigsaw and an old black and decker drill.

Wood is just some old off cuts and scraps. Half inch ply for the case,three-quarter ply for the rear panel/driver support.

1. Place horn on ply sheet,draw round profile.


Cut out end peices,and cut slots for handles.Battens added for horn mounting screws to fix against.

Those horns look lovely Ian and loaded with gauss drivers too! 
Just out of interest do you use any of the massive amount of kit you have or just collect?
The reason I ask is you now have probably one of the nicest full vintage system's I've ever seen.

Ian, your box reminds me of the old Tasco horn cabs, They were all built that way, everything exposed at the back. Good Work.
