any one know if ther is a diferance in frequency betwen horisontal and vertical positioning.

In horisontal the woofer is in the same plane as your ear? is this beter

I'm not sure what you are asking. Difference in sound? Imaging?

I haven't tried them in that postion, but I plan to use them that way after I get my subwoofer cabinets built.

It's a question of arranging the drivers in a vertical stack or a cluster. I assume you know the panel with the midrange and tweeter can be rotated. That means you can keep the tweeter and midrange in a vertical stack with either orientation. With the woofer crossing over at 250 Hz to the mid-range I really don't think it's going to make that much difference in the imaging. At closer listening distances I would expect the clustered drivers/horizontal orientation to be slightly more coherent.

I'd be interested to know what you think if you try it.

1) No. It is merely a matter of alignment, and the ability to optimize it for your listening environment. Improves imaging.

2) The woofer is only in the "same plane" if you are sitting/standing at the same height as the woofer. These can be laid on their side / mounted horizontally as near-field monitors for mix-down purposes. In general, imaging is better if the transducers and your head are aligned, and close - you get better imaging and definition (fewer reflections from boundary surfaces (walls, windows, etc.)). The only exception is VLF, which is omnidirectional.

Is this your question?
