I'm trying to arrange a 4-way, 3 horns sitting on top of a big bass box. As I have it the 42cm midrange horn (800-8k) is in front of the 95cm lower midrange horn (250-800hz). They are both round traxctix horns. The 'problem' is that the 42cm horn is obscuring 2/3 of the radius (not circumference) of the bigger horn. So you can still see the throat of the bigger horn, but the smaller overlaps it about two thirds of the way in from the edge to the center, if that makes sense.
If there a problem with waves bouncing off the back of the smaller horn or any other imaging of frequency response problems of anything I havent anticipated? (still working on setup, havent been able to fire them up yet and listen)
To avoid the above problem would come at the disadvantage of spreading the drivers out more and apart from the speakers then becoming even more monstrous I'm worried about having driver integration with having the drivers far apart, as I'm currently forced into a very nearfield position (3.3m to drivers)
Thanks for any input.
ps time delay is done digitally which is why smaller horn can be in front of bigger horn
I'd like to ask if anyone sees and appreciable problem with the following.
