The loudspeaker drivers
The three different types of drivers according to frequency capabilities are tweeters,
midrange and bass drivers.
There are several different driver designs per type. Quite a few exotic types have come up over the years and disappeared again. The classics are still:
dome and cone drivers for midrange
cone drivers for bass Please send us an E-mail should you have further questions...
The CrossoverThis component ensures that the individual drivers receive only the signal that the respective driver is able to process well. Additionally, it adjusts the volume of tweeter and midrange driver.
The main parts of the crossover are:
coils - our calculation software, capacitors - our calculation software,
resistors and a PCB where the components are mounted and wired up.
The crossover should be calculated mathematically correct using the complex calculus something you should spare yourself.
Therefore, we are providing a few tools for you:
hints regarding the design of a crossover as well as a
2 - way crossover calculator and a
multi-way crossover calculator
Please bear in mind that an optimum loudspeaker cannot be calculated with these tools alone, since the characteristics of the drivers (frequency rise...) still have to be considered.
We have collected more than 250 design

Edgar Interview, PDF, 330KB
An interview that "Audio Minister Plenipotentiary" Dave Glackin did with Dr. Bruce Edgar. Even though it's pretty dated it's also a must read.
The Dinstale Horn Loudspeaker Design Articles
Three articles summarizing the development of the design theories and concluded with two systems for construction by J. Dinsdale. Reprinted from Wireless World, March 1974.
Also an interesting article to read which is being refered to very often. However, as Dr. Bruce Edgar already pointed out on AA, it's loaded with wrong headed ideas. He wrote me that he will perhaps write an critique which I will add here.
Here is the link to his posting on AA. Or read this quotation:
The first wrong assumption is the use of any old driver in a horn. He used KEF drivers which are mass loaded. If you place these drivers on a horn, you lose bandwith. Notice that he does not present any frequency response plots.The second wrong assumption is the design of a tractrix bass horn. It's an contradiction in terms. You can't get bass out of a tractrix design.The third wrong assumption is bad things happen at the flare cutoff so Dinsdale says to back off by 20% the flare frequency. Some software out there uses this assuption. You plug in a frequency but you end up with a horn of lower flare frequency (20% below) that is longer than you need. But even worse, the mouth size is calculated for the input frequency, not the lower value. So the end result is a lower flare rate and a longer

It's a large 20Hz tapped horn for 15" drivers. Suitable drivers are the obsolete Eminence EPS15-500 and the current Kappalite 3015LF, DEFINIMAX 4015LF or MTX Audio T7515-04 (many others will work as well).

e come costruire una tromba tactrix
Tractrix Horn CalculatorTractrix Horn Calculator v1.3a, 321KMB Tractrix Horn Calculator v1.4b ⇐ Beta Version! with some new features, 372KB
Here is a (at least for me) very helpfull tool to calculate and design straight round and rectangular Tractrix horns as well as Hypex Horns. A "filter section" is currently under construction.It's throat calculation is based on the "Show Horn" article and the tractrix formula is from the Edgar Midrange Horn article. Both articles written by Dr. Bruce Edgar for the "Speaker Builder Magazine" (articles see below).
I included some helpfull functions to easily create script files to draw the tractrix curves in AutoCAD (TM). You just have to copy a column to a test file with the extension *.scr. Then execute the so called script file in AutoCAD. Be shure to swich off "ortho" and "osnap" before. This sometimes causes strange results.
If you have problems understanding what I did or what this spreadsheet is able to do for you don't hasitate to contact me.
