These will need a tweeter or not?

Depends on the driver, crossover, and desired dispersion angles, which is mostly the horn yet to be tested.

So I guess this means using up space for a home MUSEUM is more important than better sound from those boxes. I don't share that philosophy as the buyer did. I prefer to optimize the sound of every box whenever possible, using the latest technology, if doable and affordable, which it is!

No I used his home for a museum. I have, ahem, other things to occupy my time with.

Yes, I was talking about HIS home museum, since he now owns them.

Could these be mounted on the exterior of the motor board on Cornwall 1? I bet they look so good, but would want to show them off instead of the mounting style on my Cornwall are behind the motor board.

 If I make free standing ones they could sit on top of the Cornwall. I don't think there is space on the OEM motorboard for these unless you just replace the whole motorboard and start over with a new piece of wood.

Regarding free standing horns: As a general rule, horns do best when they are mounted on a baffle (not set back but rather flush or a bit proud of the baffle).

There are a few reasons for this and it may or may not be true in this particular instance.

For freestanding horns I would be leaving the stacked and glued wood as a rectangle with the  horn cavity cut flush into the front face. Debating provisions for a method to raise the whole thing up so reflection off the top of whatever it sits won't happen and to be able to tilt some for best sound. There are a lot of ideas I am debating right now.

I haven't checked them yet. I will as soon as I get a prototype and intended drivers. Based on the dimensions only so far, comes my comment.
