Hello from Sweden, want to build a shiphorn

Postby Metric » Thu Sep 17, 2015 7:33 am

Greetings from Sweden.

Havent been playing around with horns before but got hooked after seing these vids.







Trainhorns sound cool, but big shiphorns has a deeper sound that i really like.
Im going to try and build something similar.

The guy in the video says his horn pretty much copies an Airchime KM ship horn,
except his is made of plastic.
The diaphragm is made of polycarbonate .090 thick and the diameter is 7 1/4".
He runs aprox 120 psi through it.

So does anyone here have any drawings or diagrams of the Airchime KM ship horns or
anything similar to help me getting started.
All info and advice to push me in the right direction would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have any more details on how this guy assembled the horn? I have watched these videos countless times trying to figure it out. I am hoping that at some point I can get one of these assembled so i can show other people how to make it.
