looks great, I think this would make a good alternative to a labhorn for those with less money to spend on drivers and less carpentry skills. The chamber looks big enough, and the compression ratio low enough to allow for cheaper drivers than the 1850 horn. I'm sure it is very efficient too.
 
Have you tried it in groups of 4 or more?
 
where can I hear this beast?
 
Have any French sounds started building them yet? It would be good to see a french rig without a pile of w-bins or martin audio speakers, they might discover that life doesn;t end at 50Hz! (Sorry for the terrible generalisation but I'm sure you can see where I'm coming from!)
 
It's a shame it isn't quite big enough though!

it's sound f**king good ,the only problem is it's really big and make 60/70kg(without speaker) when you do it on birch-plywood!!
 
this one go really lower than 186/1850 and the chamber is bigger ,so it's don't sound like 186/1850.

The horn folding looks rather 186/1850-esque, but with a cunningly repositioned driver to move the front chamber and add more length.

Looks good on paper - how does it sound?
