Rog Mogale 18" cabinets instead of modifying the 4520s?

They differ in Qms and Vas. I have no idea if it is going to work well.
The Superscooper has a 2.22m pathway, while the 4520 I redesigned has 2.57m, and a lot more volume. Longer pathway and extra volume = deeper bass.
If I made the enclosure 4" taller, I could increase the pathway by 11" and reach 30Hz.
2.) Why not build 4 single scoops instead of 2 double scoops? Would be easier to transport.
3.) Have a look at
I will read the whole thread tonight. But something tells me I am heading in the right direction.
"Originally the E-155-8 is what we used in our upsized JBL copies! They were great, the punch, the bass articualtion, and fast transient snap were fantastic! But wasnt the greatest deep bass! The 2240 makes better deeper bottom!..."
"On an RTA I have usable response down to 30Hz, it actually is flat down to 30, and I can squeeze some response to 25hz..."
I have quickly redesigned and simplified the AJ Design principle (adding one baffle to extend the pathway) that was mentionned in that old thread. The bin has the same height and depth as a stock 4520, only a few inches wider to accomodate a pair of 18" drivers in replacement of the original 15".
There not much to change as it is. It is tuned to the 2240h's Fs 30hz.
Yes , I saw this design also but the LF cutoff is determined by the mouth area if I'm not mistaken so no gain here.
Transmision lines speaker and tapped horns are closely related to the length of the pathway, which is what determnes the resonance. I might be wrong, but isn't mouth size only one of the elements that determine how low the cabinet can go?
Some horn principles call for the mouth circumference being the length (or period) of the lowest wave length reproduced. The mouth above is .95m x .69m or 3.28m in circumference.
According to the principle previously mentionned, this should be good for 104hz... I understand that 4520s go much lower than that. Therefore I suspect that the principle that works for midrange horns might not apply necessarely to a bass horn as otherwise 30Hz, would require a 10.5 square meter mouth according to this other calculation.
SL = (c / (2 fc))2 / π
C is speed of sound
Fc is frequency cut-off
π is 3.1415.....

One wave length if operated in free space, sat on a plane you get to halve the mouth arra as the boundary is seen by the driver/horn assembly as another like unit, pushed up to a side wall and you get to halve the mouth area again. The type of unit you are building does not lend itself to eighth space loading so the party ends at 1/4 space, 25% mouth area.
If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.
For those with no space limitation, i found that Gary Stewart Audio is making what looks like his own brew of Waldorf. Talk about a big mouth... They seem to be based on the JA Horn with the extra vertical baffle.
And a single driver version
Looking at the third picture, I can see some writing on the walls. "Sortie", "Entrée". I guess the cabinets and drivers must have been assembled in Montreal for a local bar. "Stereo" in Montreal had 8 of them, standing on Berthas with Levan horns. But that bar was set-up by SystemByShorty, not GSA. I wonder what bar has those tall cabinets in Montreal...
