So does the www add up when it comes to issues like hanging horns? All the WE horns have hooks to suspend them; was this just a practical trait or something to do with the sound? Hard to test these things and come to some real solid conclusion on the matter. Set about doing that. In a nutshell…the sound is far more open when hung. Is this because of the height? I think not. in the image you can see that the 16a here is about 40cm off the floor, enought to actually lie below. That is exactly what I did and “WONDERFULL” a lot of music coming just from the slight vibration of the horn’s bottom panel. So so trumpet players play their horn on the ground?
My advice hang your horns…
Very informative blog on your vintage audio memory.
See you soon.
Walt Bender was a proponent of hanging speakers and we’re right they do sound more open, and in my opinion more 3D
