I have been reading Dr. Leach's paper and have difficulty with the concept of angular cutoff frequency. Why do we have to use the angular cutoff frequency and what will be the effect in the final design ? In most of the other formulas, I have been using the cutoff frequencies, Fl, Fh, Fc. If I undestand properly, Leach suggest we have to use 2πFl, 2πFh, 2πFc to calculate the horn parameters. Does this apply only to folded horns ? Are there times where we should use less then 360 degrees ?

No folds are assumed in his equations, which are really aimed at 'proper' horns (i.e. front loaded) though they're frighteningly effective for BLHs as well. __________________ "'That'll do", comes the cry of the perfectionist down the ages.'

There is rotation in this equation and I do not understand where the movement of the membrane is tranfered in a rotational movement, unless this movement refers to the omnidirectional movement of a sound wave. Maybe I should read more about acoustics to better understand these priciples. Any good web references to help me understand ?

It is all about the math. The change from cartesian co-ordinates makes any math with sines/cosines MUCH easier to manipulate.
