Well I'm building my own talk box from salvaged old computers speakers and pool tube. But when i looked on internet, i saw that a lot of people used some compression horn driver to build it. Right now, I'm asking myself :
- Wtf is a horn driver?
- Can I salvage that from a broken toaster ?
- Does it work better with horn driver?
Sorryz for me bad engrish.

Horn drivers are what you see in old speker set ups you can get a new one online.
Horn driver
Granted they won't all look like that but its the same principle.
Edit: and your not gonna wanna get one with that much power Unless you like air pumped at you at redicuolus speeds.

Just pony up the $50-60 for the used Danlectro Talkbox it will be worth it.
Hearing about a pair of great boobs is like hearing about a really cool bug or lizard as a kid and you just gotta see it.

It's the electromagnetic end of a horn for sound reproduction. Basically a magnet/voice coil motor, driving a diaphram to produce the acoustic energy fed though a wave guide that couples to the actual horn itself.

YES!

But only if your broken toaster looks something like this:

Tons. A horn driver is capable of fairly high sound pressure and the wavefront is already coupled to a small diameter opening. You have to be somewhat reasonable about how much power you apply, especially at the lower frequencies. But in general, you can get enough sound to rattle the filling in your teeth loose. Or if you hit the right note, it will feel like someone punched you in the sternum or may even cause you to ...
