Thread: The absolutely “best” material for horns construction.
           Reply: Scalability  
fiogf49gjkf0d
Yes, I should have said modular like your bass horns, but with much smaller segments, e.g. 36 segments of 10 degrees. Assuming one keeps the profile the same, the only difference between different sized horns is scale, so a single mould "capped" at variable lengths could be used to make a large range of horns. But I suppose it would not work if, like in your case, one needed to change the profile to suit other imperatives. (Though at 40Hz presumably one would have to start thinking about changing the house....)
