Dave: In the pic of the "Ron-horns" , it looks like Chris has got the deflector just a few inches from the wall. Does that set-up work ok? Don

Hi Don,

Pardon my butting in but aren't the deflectors part of the base?

Or do you mean the whole speaker might be further away from the wall?

Cal

EDIT: After reading Don's post again, I believe he's fully aware of the deflector being a part of the base. My bad.

Thought I'd chime in. The deflector is part of the actual speaker, attached to the base. And, Ron designed them to be used near a wall to get the most out of them.

I haven't heard the RonHorns yet.

The Fostex box was slapped together as a starting point. We didn't expect much from it, but have been very pleasantly surprised. When one considers their diminuative size & unobtrusive presentation, they are quite outstanding.

Chris has made some comments on the comparison, i get to hear them tomorrow.

To elaborate on what has already been mentioned, the horn is designed for 1/4 space and as such the deflector is theorectically best placed flat against a backwall. That the deflector is there gives some more latitude thou, the actual mouth being formed by the space between the exit of the cabinet and the extents of the deflector.

Just before Ron published this, i independently came up with the same idea (pyramidal deflectors thou) spurred on from the deflector in Bob Hayes' Daleks.
