As described at the start of the thread, FH3 is not a TQWT, nor is there an 'extra' horn involved. It's a single hypex horn with an internal choke. The driver location is also quite specific.

I see, - always the problem of jumping on a forum of not grasping details.

Are we not into semantics here? What really separates the two?

Obviously the flares works as an extended horn mouth, but you can achive the same effect by putting a TQWT into a corner, although probably not with the same predictability and finesse.

I've had a few PM's about my opinion of the FH, yes just one at the moment, and this has just occured to me.

I see many comments that say, 'These really do show up a bad recording' about whatever speaker they happened to have made.

I have a 'bad' recording of Fred's Brigg Fair, it sounds glorious through my FH with a CHP-70.

Hmmmm I thought, it's down to the 'easiness' these speakers have about them it's quite uncanny.

Regards - Jim

Does this design abate "horn delay" vs that of Ron Clarks A126 back loaded horn?

Group delay in a back horn is a function of axial length and its upper corner frequency. Nobody's complained about group delay yet, so make of that what you will. FH3 when used as intended should have a lower Fhm than the A126 though. Different designs, different priorities.

There never was a Mk2, and yes better than Mk1

one of these things is not like the other
one of these things is not the same

by a perverse extension of that logic, an open baffle nested into a corner would be horn loaded as well?
