RE: Would that be a limitation?

"Most horn lovers who saw such system would intuitively say this is the wrong way round, but is it?"

I spent some time talking with Klipsch's Chief Engineer in their commercial division about this. He says the BASS is where there is the MOST cone movement. If a cone moves, it distorts. A midrange doesn't move much and a tweeter even less, yet, this is where people put horns first rather than last.

I would say your thinking is correct. I have ALL horns in my system and there is very little coloration in the K402 with the Klispch K1133 driver.

But yes, I have a tapped horn sub from 15-70 and an EQ'd FH-1 with Klipsch woofer from 70-400 Hz. I'm very spoiled by the impact, low group delay, definition and overal "track every note" bass that I get, especially on kick drums.
