Isn't electronic delay going to only make the time alignment work directly on-axis (or wherever you choose to figure it from) and get progressively out of whack further off axis?

I've never actually used digital TD or read anything about its design or have time ATM to research it, just know that folks are pleased with its performance even with horn-in-horn systems. I mean all it does is move one sound system back in time to match another, so don't see why it would change the summed off axis response from one done physically.

Maybe this will help: Live Sound International | Tech Talk: How to correctly get loudspeaker drivers in sync

So for the 8 cell which is 10.63" tall (conversion from 27cm) tall so:

10.63/2 = 5.32*0.613 = 8.7"

Is this inches from the cabinet below or the driver edge?

Hmm, '*' = multiply, so 5.32*0.613 = ~3.26".

From the cab to bottom of the mouth. Note the relatively large gaps: http://www.lansingheritage.org/image...pro/page04.jpg

I don't have one at the moment but I am planning on getting one sometime soon

It has to be white though, I love white cats, if you have any suggestions I'd be greatful for them.

The one I had 10 years ago was a feral/hybrid, we're not entirely sure what breed he was.

At the moment I've got a 12" driver that needs protecting, better get a speaker cover... will probably be getting a second 12", I just like the accuracy of 12" drivers with the right cone material, its weird.

I have a ragdoll. Unbelievably friendly, will follow you round the house and listen to music with you. Indoor cat only though.
