Simply put: if you want wider coverage (at least on plane) than roughly 60°, for a given throat size, horn length and shape, you'll need some sort of pinching/narrowing in the horn path in order to 'shape' the wavefront (and avoid beaming).

Mind the intentional use of the word "horn".

Some may argue, "what about this?"
A (blue) horn and no pinching to speak of.

Should be: "at least in one plane"

I wonder wether the smoother oval diffraction slot of the 18s has less disadvantages then the ones on horns like all those RCF HF9... or the JBL flat-front biradials.

And I also wonder what the radiation of the Meyer one looks like.

Regards

Charles

For a long time I've wondered what the throat area of the K402 looks like.

Some call this "a dirty throat".
