Should be mounted on the wall... there should be more bass if not more extension.

Ceratinly you would have no problems with baffle step.

In my case, that's my impression; it performs like a monopole

This is getting more and more encouraging.

Keeping a consistent design between an HT centre channel and surrounds has an appeal because then there is only one design to make. A higher aspect ratio would be more flexible, with a central location for the driver.

If this were the preferred approach (I have to give these restrictions some thought) then the options might be more limited in terms of how a Fonken is implemented. One option is to take the Fonken-tuned floorstander and move the driver to the mid point and stick it on the wall vertical or horizontal (port to exit at the end rather than out the back). One could put a port at both ends if this had some advantage?

Another thought, perhaps getting carried away now, is to fold the port inside the enclosure so that port length was maintained ?



p.s. I found a website where somebody made an interesting wall-mounted flat spiral horn using a Fostex. I have no plans for one of these but thought you guys would be interested.

I wouldn't put it exactly at the midpoint, but that would actually (i'm guessing) improve the sonics.

I did sketch a version with the port out the top, but chose not to go that way as things tend to find their way inside the box.
