I made the grievous error of taking flex's bait at a time that I was fairly PO'd by his actions.I should have walked blocked his emails and walked away from the keyboard instead.
My assumtion about the Vandersteen's crossover slopes was incorrect and I erred by making a statement without researching first, and even tho overlapping drivers with shallow crossover slopes is an established means of integrating drivers, it would not be an appropriate remedy in the case of the Vandersteen's coherency problems.
Alas,my mistake must have shown as a sign of weakness.Contrary to Rod's interpretation, I did not in any way state or infer that I disapproved of isolating drivers from internal backwave interactions thru the use of separate enclosures nor of minimizing diffraction effects by maintaining as narrow a front baffle as possible.Quite the contrary,but I guess that the hyenas just couldn't resist.
