Those Crazy Swedish Horn Builders

Translated from Swedish to English.

This is what I'm talking about. Horns you can walk in and vacuum like they are a spare room. WAF! F*&% WAF! These guys are amazing. A large horn built to handle 30hz - 100hz. They are my new horn building heroes. There are lots of pics so enjoy.

A note from the builder.

This is a photo record of construction of the Mega Subwoofer Hornet Beatrice. Syftet med bygget var att hon skulle agera subwoofer i Farkosttekniks sektionslokal på KTH, där diverse fester och partyn tidigare saknat det där lilla extra som får det att skaka i hela kroppen. The purpose of the building was that she would act subwoofer in Vehicle Engineering at KTH local section, where various festivals and parties previously lacked that little extra that makes it shake the whole body.

Lite kort om högtalern Beatrice. A little short on speaker Beatrice. Det är en subwoofer av hornkonstruktion avstämd för att spela från 100Hz och ner till ca 30 Hz. There is a subwoofer design of horn tuned to play from 100Hz down to about 30 Hz. Det sitter två st Beyma 15K200 element i den, och de är på sammalagt 800W, hornkonstruktionen ger dock en akustisk förstärkning på ca 10ggr, så Beatrice kan lätt mäta sig med högtalarsystem på sammalagt 8000w. There are two pc Beyma 15K200 elements in it, and they are just put 800W, horn design, however, gives an acoustic gain of about 10 times, so Beatrice can easily compare with the same speaker added 8000W.

Bygett tog ganska exakt hela sommaren, startade i slutet av maj och hon kom upp den 4:e Augusti. Bygett took quite closely throughout the summer, started in late May and she came up August 4. Det genomfördes till stor del av mig och min vän Petter. It was a big part of me and my friend Peter. Vi två har lyckats genomföra detta bygge samtidigt som vi båda jobbat heltid på våra respektive sommarjobb. We two have managed to implement this construction while we both worked full time on our respective summer jobs.

Till alla er som komenterat och sett dessa bilder tidigare kan jag bara be om ursäkt för min oproffisionella presentation. To all of you to Comment and seen these pictures before, I can only apologize for my oproffisionella presentation. Tanken var att publicera detta album när allt var helt klart, men av misstag så blev det halvfärdiga albumet publicerat helt utan förklarande text. The idea was to publish this album when everything was clear, but by mistake as it was half-finished album was released without any explanatory text. För att mer ingående följa byggdagboken över projeket hänvisar jag nu till denna tråd på det emminenta forumet hififorum.nu http://www.hififorum.nu/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=61668&whichpage=1 For more detailed follow the construction diary on projeket I refer now to this thread on the emminenta Forum hififorum.nu http://www.hififorum.nu/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=61668&whichpage=1

Mer text och bilder kommer så småningom. More text and images will eventually. Och eftersom det blev så många bilder på detta bygge var jag tvungen att skapa flera st album så kolla även de andra albumen om Beatrice. And since there were so many pictures of this building, I had to create multiple pc albums so check also the second album of Beatrice.

Med vänliga hälsningar Sincerely,

Transporting must have been interesting.

Bravo! That is just stunning. I would love to walk in to a club and see those as speakers. Amazing work.


  1. Crazy Europeans! They are great woodworkers though!

  2. Admiring the time and effort you put into your blog and detailed information you offer!.. Nisar Technology

  3. considerably longer cast with indistinguishable traits from previously. Without a doubt, I was incredibly dazzled and couldn't stand by to toss the bait out once more. 바다이야기

  4. It was wondering if I could use this write-up on my other website. I will link it back to your website though.Great Thanks.
