Here's some more pictures of stargate

The very wide vertical dispersion is due to the VERY narrow vertical mouth. Just one half of a centimeter. The big black plastic roundover is there to reduce diffraction at the mouth. The reason that it's only rounded on one side is that it's designed to be placed in a car, where the dash extends the curve on one side, but not the other.

This is the on-axis response of the device

My measurement technique isn't terribly sophisticated; this was measured using the RTA on my iPad, on axis, at approximately 2 feet. Levels are fairly low as I didn't want to blow up the compression drivers. (There's no xover in the mix.)

This is the same measurement, at 45 degrees off axis. Note how similar it is to the on-axis response. (Ideally we'd want the exact same shape, but at a reduced output level.)

The two graphs overlayed.

Not too shabby huh?

Turned out really well actually! It's amazing how directional it is, and how smooth the response is, considering the reflectors.

What's so good about 15" Tannoys anyway?
