question 1.
where better to make a hole in the wall for horns? Toe-in or not?
I'd moved horns (alas w\o LF, 1order about 500 hz crossed) hither and thither. subjectively about 2.6-2.8 m between seems better than less distance for horns parallel to wall.
Also I tried corner placement toed-in 45 (I read some Wayn Parham texts and others similar..). May be, 4.2 m between speakers is too large distance or distance from listener to speakers is not enaugh? Right\left sounds gathers in right\left corners....
Toed-in with non-corner placement is contrary to flush-mounting..
Defined directivity horns (Everest like) seems unavailable..
Theortically, reconstruction of fron wall to \_/ shape is possible, but practically and now - ....

yes, I registred there last year and read many.
it slightly different cult.
I hope, praeps unresonable - I'll have no subwoofer..

And also I googled&googled flush\inwall\soffit mounted speakers.. Results: common phrase that is good, studio projects with speakers pointed at listening point and ugly set of wretched homecinemaspeakers for inwall mounting ..

p.s.: from Manuals
"The loudspeakers can be placed as close to the front wall as possible (mounting the speakers in the wall, in soffits, being ideal) ...(Users should consult with their Westlake dealer or the Westlake Audio technical staff for soffit mounting guidelines)."
do wright me to Westlake Audio technical staff ?
promise that I'll buy a pair of TM-3 monitors ( http://www.westlakeaudio.com/Speaker...ries/tm-3.html ), it seems unfair

re:'Toe-in or not?' - depends on the directivity characteristics if the driver, and how you listen - sitting in one spot, or moving around? At least with boxes, you can change your mind.... and not affect the rear room so much too... although I guess you're prepared to sacrifice that room...

2380 is 90x40 horn.
I'm almost never sitting\listening exactly in "sweet spot". and I hate laserbeaming speakers.
I had some boxes&open baffles, and don't want now
I (almost)don't sacrifice room aria with this project relatively hundred liters boxes standing 3' from walls. and the wall I do not mind ..
