All I did was place a 1" block under the front edge of the speakers to slightly angle them up so I was staring straight down the barrel of the mid horn and problem solved. Yes, it made a huge difference. Personally, I would refrain from doing this. Two reasons. Roy Delgado has previously made two key and related statements about the advantages of the midrange Tractrix 90x60 horn. First, Roy says it provides maximum transfer of sound energy constantly directed at the listening position (LP). Pointing the speaker towards the ceiling would partially overt this design feature. Second, Roy prefers a 90x60 Tractrix horn to reduce ceiling reflections. He has said this is the primary reason why he doesn't like round horns. Further, and in support of his position, studies of concert hall listening quality/perception are influenced by two main criteria, sound level intensity and lateral dispersion. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
