Any chance you could share the design/sim on this one? Currently trying to design a horn in hornresp for the 12mb1000 and am having a bit of trouble - thanks!

I can help you out with a design that I have (just) finished that may help but the 12" will play from around 100-300Hz in a band pass design, with another horn loaded 10" playing from 300-1kHz. The design has been made with the same foot print a the MT112, and is only around 15cm taller. PM me if your interested and ill finish the Sketch Up and send through the details (things still need to be tweaked but its 95% done in its current state)

>>>I also haven't tested this driver in it but I have had success with most other drivers, and if you are interested I could sim this for you<<<

I suggest you go learn about how to design a horn.. there are threads about programs like hornresp which help you with the math and the sims

Sorry to resurrect this old one, but I am in need for a diy horn to fit the 18sound 12MB1000.
How exactly could the MT122 horn shape be altered?
Or does someone have any knowledge of a diy horn specifically designed for the 12MB1000?
I searched an awful lot but did not find anything except the old JBL 4512 enclosure that "seems to work" with the 18sound... but no valid information really.

what I need should play from 200Hz to about 800Hz...1kHz max.

thanks!

by the way

you'll have to cross them at about 1000-1200Hz to some meaty 2" Drivers...

DYSW

the last diagram is for a MT122 with a slight larger mouth area (increase widht of enclosure) and a smaller throat (modify horn entry to suit your needs)

it is still preety much an mt122

I trhink I'll try to simulate a porn horn tonight to see if it can work with your diver (presumung the phaseplug fits on your cone...  hmmm)

Now for the big Question. How
 
Should i spend 500-600 pounds and tests them out and sell them after the test if they don`t work  ? Just seems like a big waste if they don`t work.
 
I have some problems with figuring out if the last diagram from Mircea Bartic  can be made into a regular cabinet or not.
 
Again thx for your replies.

Well, ironically enough, you posted in the forum entitled "porn horns"..Porn Horns are a ready made fibreglass horn section for a 12" driver, available from Pro Audio Parts I think. All you'd have to do is build a basic box/baffle assembly  to drop them into.
 
As for freq. range of the porn horn, and if your drivers will suit, can't say, you'll have to work that one out for yourself.. Good luck.

Thx so much for the replies. Really nice
 
 
the last diagram looks nice imo. No nasty peaks. But u sound like u know alot about it so MT122 are not a option.
 
Range wise i had thought of let them play from 150-200 to 1700-2000. I run a 4 way system so i have a 4 15" that plays from 50 to 200. Mainly to take the presure of the 12" units.
 
What i was looking for is a link to a company that sells premade horns or if anybody had any used ones. the problem is time, i don`t have the time to build that much myself anymore. I really wanna do it but with family and everything its just not posible.
 
Im also considering just using them in a reflex system. they have a pretty high DB From 100 to app 2000 so it would be useable. but not matching very well to my Das 2" drivers that delivers much more DBs.
 
LMK what u think.
 
Best regards
Mikkel koch
