I've got some large midrange horns here that I'm measuring. I'm finding that an on-axis FR measurement (it's gated to eliminate room effects) near the mouth is significantly different from measuring on-axis 2 feet away. Further away, the LF response rolls off earlier (higher in frequency) and the HF response rolls off more slowly. Is this behaviour to be expected?
This is a 200Hz horn loaded with a compression driver. Measuring at the mouth, the LF is approx -3db at 300Hz. 2 feet away, -3db is 400Hz, 6 feet away, -3db is approaching 500Hz. I can certainly hear the hole in the response there from my listening position if I cross over too low.
The HF, on the other hand seems to roll off less steeply when measured from further away.
I'm just wondering if this is standard horn behaviour? I expected the measurment to be different, but I didn't expect to see those general effects.
