Hello Sonomanie, thanks for that. I can read German, but have always wondered if I interpret Klinger's remarks correctly. Now I can check in my mother tongue.

The text says in the first lines that the driver is coupled to the horn in the same way as in a Klipsch horn. I would interpret that to mean that it's a frontloaded horn with a back chamber. It also says that the space below the cabinet is part of the horn expansion. OK, so far so good. But later on, the text says that if the enclosure is placed directly on the floor, it functions as a sealed box of 45 liters. Now, if it were a frontloaded horn, putting it directly on the floor would simply close the hornmouth and no sound would come out. I guess it is a backloaded horn after all. I read as much on a German forum, but could not really follow that part of the discussion. There is an updated version of this horn (still for 10" driver) that was updated to frontloaded horn (the RT1 simulated in the links I gave).
We want to be happy, bold and free

Hi Ivo,

Post#51: "...I guess it is a backloaded horn after all."

You would have to leave out board #2 (Post #47) to open up the backchamber of the horn to the room.
