    I do.

    The low frequency sensitivity and the response curve are very typical of a horn loaded speaker, but note the limitations below 100Hz. The reason for this is the relatively small mouth area and throat length/flair rate. The most significant advantage is the pattern control at lower frequencies.

    Because of the pattern control already built into the horn, it's already operating into less than full space environment so adding a 1/2-space boundary is going to provide less influence than on a traditional bass reflex or sealed speaker.

    agedhorse, I should have known better then to ask such a tongue in *-* question.
    What was this thing initially designed for?

    It was designed for stadiums where good mid-LF pattern control along with sensitivity is required. There are thousands of these types of speakers out there in this application.

    Pattern control is important to the neighbors!
