A lumped-parameter model of the Tapped Horn loudspeaker–a design where the loudspeaker driver radiates into the throat as well as the mouth of the horn simultaneously–is presented. The model enables the estimation of the far-field sound pressure response from the Thiele/Small parameters of the loudspeaker driver and an additional analytic two-port matrix representation of the Tapped Horn. Simulations, performed using the model for subwoofers, are compared to measurements from an actual loudspeaker.
