Chance find, vented frontloaded horn

I was looking for something completely different, but came across this article of the German loudspeaker DIY magazine Klang&Ton. It showcases four horndesigns, including some measurements and the construction plans. I was particularly interested by the page shown here, mainly because of the unusual and pleasing shape of the design. When I dug in deeper, I found that the basshorn is quite short, basically LaScala-like and the rest of the bass cabinet is a vented rear chamber. Very similar to what I showed earlier, in a very different form. Cool!

Scans of the full article are in this thread.
