Folded (reentrant) Horn, parametric

3D model description

Design of folded (reentrant) horn typically used in public address systems.
You can read more horn theory at wikipedia (
Reentrant horn basically amplifies sound at cost of cutting off low frequencies.

See demonstration here:

Horn was designed in Autodesk Inventor and many properties were parametric. You can modify cut-off frequency, horn length and width, speaker radius, etc. See image attached and video:

Horn shape is hypberbolic.

Source Inventor file is included.

The published horn design was parameterized for this type of loudspeaker:

"1.5" inch 4Ohm 4Ω 3W Full Range Audio Speaker Stereo Woofer Loudspeaker"

Note: base part includes supporting cylinder (brown part at the picture) for better print. It can be disabled in Inventor if you don't want to use it.
