Hasn't it gotten through yet?  Size doesn't matter.  Not these days.  Right, what about doing it with stretchy fabric and resin like this :- (main thing around 2:45)

Clearly the top frame would be horn shaped, round or the number of sides you want.  Pull the fabric tight, and coat with resin.  You'd only need to do this once so that the fabric sets hard. Further finishing can be done after your horn is taken off the frame.  Can't see this working for the curved tube part, but at least it's progress.  Or is it?

^This is the process in which to make custom speaker enclosures and the like for car audio.
I did this back near 2000-2001, it's quite fun and rewarding.

Here's another possible source for the horn:

Why stop there when you can go bigger? Tongue

Oh, for a calabash that big. Think of the gourd banjo it'd make...

Walk softly and carry a big banjo...
