Tractrix horn for Klipschorn

Dave's horn  will modify the look and the sound as the tweeter is on the side of the mids Horn , a totally different  speaker -------no longer a khorn --

 

I realize that, and that is one of my objections to the idea as implemented. What would be the issue with fabricating a new top hat to allow the installation of Dave A's horn or the K77 above the tractrix horn? If it sounds like crap to my ears nothing more than a little shop time to restore it eh?

We are not talking about Dave  A's horn , we are talking of the Dave Harris Horn for the mids , now Dave Harris also has a tweeter lense that is mated to the mids horn and it fits flush into the motorboard  -

 

if you place the Dave Harris tweeter lense   on top of the mids horn ala khorn ,  it should sound spectacular  , my guess is the top  hat would have to be slightly  higher  since the horn mouth is wider than the K400-

Why not just use Greg's drop in replacement horns and BMS 2" drivers? Just too simple ....

My OP was solely about Dave H’s tractrix mf horn. A comment was made about the tweeter being off center, which I also dislike, so now I AM talking about both Dave H’s mf and Dave A’s hf horns since I have both Dave A’s horn with B&C DE120 driver and K-77’s and one or the other may be a natural.   
 

I’ll look at Greg’s horn driver combo also.

If you don't like the tweeter being off center do what I did, I got a pair of Fostex 90a's and centered them on top of my khorns.

Only for the better IMHO.

Nothing wrong with this idea. The tweet will be pretty high physically. Make a new taller motorboard for the horn lenses and new taller side pieces and braces for the tophat. The bottom and tops could be used as is.

Yes, totally replaced with ALK. Still have originals.
