The PDF is not the point, post #120 has a link to another post.
That link does not work, for me anyway, presumably because I use a different number of posts per screen to the OP.
This is despite the fact the OP linked to a specific post, to avoid precisely this problem.
He was smart and used the post number in the text so I just found it that way and didn't mention the problem until I saw Toni's comment.

Got it.

That link doesn't work because the OP didn't copy the link using the number in the top RHS of the post.

This is the correct format:

https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/103872-geddes-waveguides-post4469018.html

This is the incorrect format:

https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/103872-geddes-waveguides-751.html#post4469018

The incorrect format includes the page number, which doesn't work if you have a different number of posts per page set usually because that page number doesn't exist or make sense. It takes you to page 751, which will be the wrong page if you are at 50 posts per page, then the hashtag (anchor) part of the URL tries to take you to an anchor which doesn't exist.

TLDR; When you want to make a link work, copy the link from the post number.

So the problem being reported is, I think, if a post has a quote, and a quote has a link in the "Originally posted by" area, this link doesn't work if you have a different number of posts per page setting than the default. I consider that a pretty major bug concerning core functionality of the forum, so I'll definitely try to fix this ASAP using some kind of hack, instead of saying "let's wait for XenForo".

Ok, I believe I have fixed this (it was pretty deep, to do with layers upon layers of "SEO friendly" rewriting voodoo) and now I believe that the link that appears, in quotes, should work for everyone no matter how many posts per page they are using:

In this case, perhaps.

How do you explain the fact that an OS waveguide has a lower DI than a rigid piston in a baffle? If the waveguide did not "pull out" the directivity then it should follow the piston.

I think that we are all arguing different things. I know that most horns beam. What I am saying is that beaming is not inherent in the theory, it is a characteristic of the specific design. In theory there is no limit to the HF range of CD on an OS waveguide. That said, different drivers will have different wave front shapes at these very HFs and this will effect the HF polar pattern - probably in complex ways that might change from driver to driver - because, despite design intent, the wave fronts in these devices is not flat (see the paper previously post by WG for proof of this. But this is because the phase plug is not properly designed (see my patents). SO in practice we are likely to see varying degrees of beaming from waveguide to waveguide and driver to driver, but this is not because of the aperture size - that is irrelevant - it is a limitation of the Bob Smith phase plug and the fact that this design will not create a flat wave front at the exit aperture.

The above uses the link format:

https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/103872-geddes-waveguides-post4469018.html#post4469018

Which should do the trick.

I did explicitly request the OP to use the link to a specific post but I missed that he messed it up.
I shouldn't have assumed, thanks.

In fairness, the forum should make these things easy and impossible to mess up. If you need a link in a previous post edited let me know.

No criticism of the OP, only my failure to check.
Links are all fine, thanks once more.
