September 2010 Meeting

Date: Sunday, September 19th, 2010, 6:00 PM

Place: Boston University, Life Science & Engineering Bldg, 24 Cummington St, 1st Floor Conference Room: (Room 103), Boston, MA 02215

Featured Guests: Gordon Vinther - Founder & Loudspeaker Designer for Vinther Labs

Topic: Designing a Full Range, Single Horn Loudspeaker


Gordon Vinther, after years of research, has developed a new type of speaker.

It is a single horn with a single mouth whose frequency response is 25 Hz to 20 kHz, +/- 5dB.

The loudspeaker, unlike most horn speakers, has a small footprint (40 x 24 inches). It is a 6 feet tall, full spectrum horn. All drivers use the same sound path and therefore produce a single coherent sound wave. Integrated electronics include a flat phase crossover, bass boost and class "t" amplifiers.

According to Mr. Vinther, the loudspeakers create a realistic three-dimensional listening experience.

The design pays particular attention to Time Domain considerations.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own Compact Discs for playback.

There will be refreshments at 5:30.
