    I would not be able to judge if the MT102 is appropriate for your needs, but as far as difficulty of construction: the most difficult aspects are likely to be the bevel cuts and forming of the curved horn path. Certainly this is one of the simplest of horn projects.
    It is likely that a search will turn up more detail by those who have already built them.
    If it were me I'd first make ( or find ) a CAD or Sketchup model as it would derive measurement and is a helpful visual aid.

    Wavelength increases as frequency drops so a bigger horn is needed for lower frequency control.

      That's something I'm looking at as well (I've got a thread going here somewhere), so I'm interested in seeing what you come up with, seeing that my "financial controller" is likely going to nix any speaker purchases for awhile :(.

          1600 seems like a fine place for the xover. Glad it all worked out. Now, post some pictures!
