It's roughly half the size of the THAM15 (35x50x55cm) but is still granting useful 50Hz response with a 100dB/W/m sensitivity flat on open ground, the driver chosen as default example is the Beyma12LX60V2.

Once again Johannes Rodin is to blame for yet another new THAM design seeing the light of day, his first words where "- it's tuned to low and the enclosure is to big" but eventually he came around to seeing it my way :)

If you csn not find your driver below and have questions like "will this driver work?" then please try yourself using the data provided above and simulate it using hornresp, if it works, please let me know, all the info you need to find out if your driver will work is already provided here.

The drawings will be updated, and the original Beyma 12LX60 will be added to the simulations, I have seen it and it looks just fine.

Please note that I do not judge the following simulations, this should be left to the potential DIY'er, but it goes without saying that some simulations shows better results then others.

Some designer notes - This design prefers high BL (about 20 or higher) and low QTS, but i guess thats a given to anyone visiting this page, right!* :)

*/ I try to make it a point that not only hell bent speaker nerds should be able to DIY a decent tapped horn.
