: I concure with your apprehension. But I was also thinking that with HF compression drivers, and the fact that they're generally horn loaded, bending them around might not be as bad as with LF drivers. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

: : Not yet, I am curious but also apprehensive. I am a bit skeptical of 'reflected sound' but that is just based on not liking the way folded horns or any other 'non direct radiating' sound source sounds.

Greg... I have nothing agaist speaker arrays, Bose has some great 901's, and has been using arrays for years. Listen to their 'Wave' radio presently on the market, employing a folded horn design, only on a smaller scale, but is giving them high reviews in the Stereo Today research mag. I myself am fully focused on folded horns on the low end. I am presently in the process of building a pair of K-Horns for my winter basement project. I have been researching speaker enclosures for years, and trying to understand all the priciples of why.... these guys like Paul Klipsch, Jim Lansing and his brother Altec ran into their shops in the middle of the night with their pipedreams... These are the guys! We owe these guys... they did all the work. RODGER
