Yes I do want try a ceiling corner with the horn at the apex. My thought here is from that position why force another shape onto something that is already tetrahedral. Think Unity from ceiling corner. The Altec 604s did sound great from this position. This would be a new approach. No space behind the horn, therefore no reflections. Maybe I'm wrong and this only works for woofs in corners. I'm thinking beyond the 8th space woofer benifits. More as a soffit mount no rear reflection thing.

Ok. I see why some of you think this is odd. If i were trying to *create* a horn with that pattern it would be odd! What I am thinking is we are more or less *stuck* with it at already at the room corners wall-floor-ceiling junctions. There are certain monitoring situations where a fixed listening position is required. PWK used this 8th space placement for a bass horn as we all know. I would like to tap into this pre-existing horn from the ceiling for use as a studio monitor, not for the reason klipsch did, although both could be done simultaneously. If I have not been clear I wish to start at the apex with hf driver. Klipsch used it for corner loading bass born only.

My thought process here is that the throat "round to triangular" transition *might* be a lot less problematic than reflections off of adjacent rear room walls/ceiling. In this design they would be entirely eliminated. This could be thought of as the speaker equivalant of a pressure zone microphone in that sense. The equlitateral triangle is a very powerful position to listen from for a variety of reasons. This concept is an attempt to take advantage of what we are already "blessed" with. Given new horn concepts like Unity it seems to me a no brainer not to at least contemplate this. I feel this is the place to put ideas like this forward for review.

I very much appreciate all of the feedback I'm getting. I hope it makes more sense now.
