You dont want to have to constantly replace diaphragms, do you? My buddy used to have two of them and those suckers were always going out. When the pedal was unplugged it would pass sound in the bypass mode and block it when turned on with no poer applied. Zip Cord is two wire electrical cord usually brown that can be unZIPped by just pulling the two wires apart. Is this a bad idea? Your mouth will mask all that completely.

Besides, you’ll probably run it without a crossover and to handle lower frequencies the lower the power the better. The car you drive, the speedometer says it’ll top out at mph, right?
This is the trickiest part of the entire project. I’m looking at a Selenium Dx horn.

When the pedal was unplugged it would pass sound in the bypass mode and block it when turned on with no poer applied. Get yourself a good horn driver like a JBL or older Altec that can handel the wattage ypou may want to drive it with and you’re in business. JD Sleep There are a few different ways to build your own talk box. How do I know these things?
Zip Cord is two wire electrical cord usually brown that can be unZIPped by just pulling the two wires apart. JBL or Old Altec drivers work real good.
Definitely thinking about mke old school talkbox here. You dont want a high frequency driver because they might have an alluminum element and just put out high frequency only and shread the element if you try to push the mids you need. Obviously, I don’t want to pump w into it. Just think what you got to look forward to when you get old.

So mine gets screwed on a ways and then secured with some attractive black duct tape. The ones that look like foot pedals simply have a small driver in the box.
It’ll never see it’s full potential. I should do this, too.
The horn I want to use is rated at w rms at 8ohms, I believe. Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next. I fiddled around with some PVC connector parts from a plumbing supply store until I found something that worked.
In the diagram I showed the speaker wires in the guitar amp for clarity, there tto no mod what so ever to your normal hprn amp. That’s going to be pretty dirty, no?
Its a bitch to haul to gigs though and set up. I laid the amp on its back so the cone was pointing straight up. Above is a diagram of a better method to amplifiy your talk box.
This way the tube doesnt have to be 6′ long and you dont loose all that sound quality. This unit will plug in between your guitar and amp, just like any other effects pedal. I’m considering using a practice amp of appropriate size to power it.
I think mine was from one of those Pagine horns you see in Factories, maybe its a 50w ducane or something like that designed for full withh voice applications. I couldnt even find talkox schematic for them, but once you get look under the hood you know why they cost so much.
Looked extremely funky onstage, but it sure was a topic of conversation! I used right angle Switchcraft jacks for the patch cable so there are no protrusions from the back of the amp. You get a fairly powerful horn driver and long plastic tube. I don’t know when the last time was that someone has posted on this topic usually stick to HCFX.
