When you say vertically tall and horizontally narrow are you refering to its physical appearance? or its dispersion pattern? Do not most line array horns try to maximize the horizontal while having a fairly constrained vertical? Or are you refering to just the characteristics of the line array "lense". In other words, I suppose if one looked at the L-Acoustics Vdosc Wave Guide I suppose you could say it was long and narrow.
Just curious?

: The Line Array horn is a special case horn that is quite diferent. The goal of the Line array horn is to have sound exit all points of the horn at the exact same time and to have the exit be vertically tall and horizontally narrow.
