What, put a row of drivers down the middle?
And sum right and left to center?

Well, I kinda knew this flooder wouldn't work out, so I made it a certain way to be able to add a row of acoustic reflector lenses. You'll see.

No direct sound above 3kHz is a situation.

What exactly is the problem?

a side firing L and R flooder with C for direct cues, adjustable in volume and delay, in a single box would be an interesting concept. I.e. I like the idea better than Elias' single box stereo speaker. Of course that project may have changed.

Flip the front baffles around so the 45 deg is toed-in.

yea, but then you'd need more drivers.....

It would be like mini ambio without the extreme panning.

It may not work, who knows.

Well......it sounds like I'm in a sewer pipe!
I'm thinking direct sound should reach the ears first. Then reflected.

I'm sure it won't work. Although I was suprised on how much sound was coming from the sides. But it was only high frequencies so it sounded disjointed. A plus was that I was able to cut off RACE at around 1-2kHz
If I went with the matrixed center, that wouldn't help to push mid frequencies to the sides. I would still have to apply RACE and I'm not sure of the effect of that on a mono center....it may not hurt it. But the center still would not do much for the delay of HF coming from the sides.
Also, with the omni design.....it would alleviate CTC CF

Yes, it might just come to that
Split it down the middle and go with traditional stereo set up.
I don't think line sources are good for critical listening anyhow.

Well I guess the difference would be the adjustable delay? Oh and this one has the side drivers at 45 degrees.
I'm sure Elias flooder is good. I think the problem with this is that it's a line source and it's nearly equally as loud coming off the wall because of the cylindrical wave front, add comb filtering to that and the fact that line sources swamp the room, and you have yourself a perfectly constructed sewer pipe!
