    I read a little bit about your unity horn device over on audioasylum and was wondering if you could explain some things to me. First, the horn is supposed to be completely time aligned, correct? How do you do that with two drivers in the same horn? Also, how is any low frequencies horn loaded with the same flare as high frequencies? Are their "multiple horns" one loading the bass and one loading the HF? Thanks.

    Hi Jerry,
    Sorry for the long delay in response, but I had typed out a long response when my computer decided to lock up and throw out the entire response!!![​IMG] Thanks for asking about it here, I just hope you still swing by to see the response.
    Over at AA there was a loooong exchange where I got our designer, and inventor of the Unity Summation Aperture, Tom Danley to jump in and give even more in depth responses. If you can read past Wayne's closed minded posts, there are some hugely informative posts by Tom Danley(aka tomservo). Here is the link:
    Unity Patent Thread at AA
    Pick through that as you have time and you will find some great posts and info there, particularly by Tom, myself, and John Hancock among others. I will answer some questions here and welcome any other questions. Fortunately this forum makes it much easier to follow the discussion.

    Thanks for replying, Mark, sorry it took so long for me to respond...

    But yes, that is quite interesting that you can gain such good time alignment, you said within 1/4 wavelength over the entire audio spectrum, correct? Also, what about the frequency response, is it as flat as the time response? I also assume the system phase is very, very flat, right?

    Regarding Wayne, what do you think of his designs? Have you heard any of them? He doesnot do FR measurements on them so I am wondering about the phase and frequency responses with his designs.

    Thanks again.
