Hi Jay

Not a lot of corner horn users out there.  As far as I know, there are only 3:  Me, Andy (wild_6_99), and Steve himself.

One thing to remember is that with the corner horns the highs are projected out at a 45 degree angle.  This means that the sweet spot will be half the distance between speakers from the front wall.  So, if you put the corner horns on a 16' front wall, the sweet spot is going to be 8' away from the front wall.  Taken to an extreme, say a 10x30 room with speakers on the 10'wall, the sweet spot will be 5' from the front wall and 25' from the back wall.  Obviously a square room will have the sweet spot in the dead center.

I had mine in a 16x24 room, and they worked fine along a 24' wall and along a 16' wall.  I preferred them on the 16' wall but it was a surprise when I found I had to move up to only 8' away to get to the sweet spot.

Hi Dan,
Thanks for replying, as far as the sweet spot goes I have the ability to toe in my tophats. So I can kinda play with the sweet spot a little, I am about to build a dedicated music room with inside dimensions of
19X13X8 or 9 not sure about the ceiling yet.
