I thought Pano still has issues.

His speakers I mean, I know about the other ones.

Uh, thanks Cal.
I dunno if my Cornu has issues, or it's just the stuffing. Anyhow, I'd like to get the FR smoother.

To answer an earlier question:
When scaled to 20", the Planet10 PDF gives a mouth size of about 3.75". That's measured from parallel side to side on the section after the first corner. I.E. the first significant straight walls.

Were you answering my question? I think my question was actually, what was the width of the throat section next to the driver?

A true Canadian B.S. session! Do you remember who won, the home team or the visitor?

Not sure what part that is. The opening into the horns?

Yes, the gap of the horn inlet from the driver chamber. You and Cal look like you are in the jungles of Zimbabwe about to test out acoustic shock therapy for gorillas in the mist.

Pretty close, it's the wilds of Canada.

Actually that's a rocket powered speaker you see us attempting to hold down. Eventually we just had to let go. Serious thrust from that puppy.
