    In some households there's a rule about such things: If it has a flat top, it's a plant stand.

    During the seventies pea soup era, a Trusonic dealer in Berkeley carried the 8, 12, 15" FR's; I do not recall seeing the toroidal tweeters there, and also had 6" ferrite full ranges (I saw a 5"...

    The rest of the story . . .

    You also will need a tailored frequency response pre-emphasis to use that horn successfully. I am not aware of a passive crossover that provides it. JBL M552 and M553 or 5235 with the appropriate...

    A build for the Klipsch Shorthorn is detailed in Badmaeif and Davis pp 111-13. Very simple. Through a one-inch slot, which also tunes the enclosure, it feeds a horn formed by the sides of the cabinet...

    Re 3 channel and Klipsch: I just remember seeing a photo or graphic with a Belle Klipsch as the center channel between two K-horns. An upsell, I guess. That's how deep I got into it.

    Reverie alert!!

    I kinda had a pair of K-horns at one time. I'd found one with EV drivers that was very very good, 15WK, T350 and a re-entry midhorn with a big alnico driver. I enjoyed it immensely...

    Some highlights for me:

    I love it, in the context of the old penchant for Bose-bashing in these forums, that GT seemed intrigued by the basic idea of the BOSE 901 and said that if the shortcomings...

    Getting a DCR reading (if an original cone) is a good idea, even better if it is posted here.
