horns are designed for flush cabinet mounting or compact cluster applications.
With various coverage angles available, these horns provide uniform
on and off axis frequency response from 400-500 Hz to beyond 16 kHz.
The horns' small vertical mouth dimension (just slightly larger than
the compression driver used to drive each horn) allows very compact
single and multiple horn/driver systems to be put together.
In addition, the exceptionally consistent horizontal dispersion eliminates
the midrange narrowing and high frequency beaming problems typically
associated with conventional horn designs. The need for horn overlapping
is minimized and lobing and comb filter effects are virtually eliminated.
design techniques were used to derive the horn contours in the horizontal
and vertical planes. Utilizing sidewall contours based on a polynomial
power series formula, the horn design yields smooth response, low
distortion, and even coverage. This design avoids the performance
disadvantages of horns that feature sharp flare transitions and flat
sidewalls. The BiRadial® compound flare configuration provides constant
coverage over defined, solid angles. To ensure light weight, superior
strength, and freedom from resonances, the horn bell is constructed
of molded structural foam.
