You won't find a good horn sub with a small footprint anyway.

What do you call a small footprint?

Define "good".  Define "small".

The JTR Growler and the Danley TH-Mini are both quite compact and are supposed to sound quite good.

I know it wasn't directed at me, but... I need a new home for my Eminence Kappa Pro 15LF.  It currently resides in an old Peavey 1516 bass cabinet.  It sits under a JBL TR-105 which is the mid-high portion of a drum monitor mix.  I want AT LEAST the "performance" of the Peavey and the size should be no larger than the Peavey.  If it sits under the TR-105 (while on it's feet as a monitor wedge) and does the job, I'll be happy.  Since the Peavey is the benchmark for size and performance it should be hard to do better and more compact...  Very Happy

Eminence 3015LF neo in a small front loaded cab would be ideal IMO.  Use WinISD to get some box parameters and port length/sizing.

Hi,

Eminence have the plans for your driver on their web site. No need to buy their software. The pdf is on the same page as the spec sheet for the driver. If you phone them, they will email you the pdf for the older version of the driver.

Thanx but I already have a Kappa Pro 15LF... would the same parameters work?

I saw spec sheets with charts and figures, but no blueprint or the like...

Please guys dont over complicate.

Louie, just build a box wit 170l of internal volume with two holes with 12cm diameter.

That port will tune the box to 40Hz and will give you optimum results for your driver.

Make sure you add enough bracing inside the box to eliminate resonance problems.

Regards
Marjan

Marjan,
You don't say what length of port he should use. If thickness of material only, you need to state what material thickness he should use, such as 12mm or 18mm.
Yes, it's at least THAT complicated.. Twisted Evil

Just the thickness of the material. 18mm that is.

Very Happy
