Constant Width Folded Exponential Bass Horn - 1955


  1. My first full-time job was with a sound company that had built a set of 16 of these puppies. We'd stack them four across and two high per side, woofers touching. They produced an astounding bass, deep but also fast due to the tiny drivers. They were a pain to set up as they had to be wired up in a series/parallel arrangement with banana plugs and were driven with a 1,000 BGW amplifier purchased when the Sensurround system at the biggest theater in town was dissembled.

    1. That is really cool. Thanks for the story.
