What's So Sacred About Exponential Horns?

Document Thumbnail

The maintenance of constant directivity with frequency in high-frequency exponential horns is quite difficult. Two main sound industry solutions are the multicell and radial/sectoral horns. While the multicell exhibits fairly constant directivity, both designs suffer from mid/high-frequency polar lobing and midrange narrowing, and the radial shows continually decreasing vertical beamwidth as frequency increases. A new series of horns which optimally joins a modified conical horn with an exponential throat section corrects these problems, while offering very well behaved polar patterns and constant directivity up to 16 kHz.
