Angelo- is the dispersion on that horn kind of "beamy" the way you have it mounted? Just wondering- I have never seen one turned 90 degrees like that.

Yeah, speakers go sideways in the corner of the ceiling pointing down 17 degrees. There is also 4-12's in porter boxes for subs.

Good gawd, how big is this bar?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
