KHorn corner

Recommended Posts

My listening room/theater has acoustic foam covered with painted cloth to match the interior on front and rear walls, side wall are painted sheet rock. The foam  really improved the sound (Forte II/Crites)

I am interested in Khorns but the front wall covering will result in corners that have acoustic foam in half of each corner. Can anyone predict how this will affect the corner speaker performance?

The K Horn needs the reflective surfaces of the corner because the room corner becomes part of the speaker. This is plans that PWK drew up for a false corner. You have corners so 3/4” plywood of these dimensions should work.f2df01987a494016073849cbd1910084.jpg

The KHorn bass bins operate up to about 400 Hz, where the wavelength is still nearly 3 feet. Unless the foam is more than about 8" thick, the bass won't even notice it.

Thanks for he replies, reviving this because I have rethought it. I have another room with perfect corners on the front walls but no rear wall, (opens onto stair landing.) Would the absence of a rear wall be a problem?

More likely it will be a blessing. The lack of a rear wall might help avoid standing wave problems.
