Anyone tried the Cornu horn? (BD-Design)

I know Cornu personally.

Bert is right. You can't just take a midrange (and up) horn and stick it on a Cornu backloaded horn, that will make the sound unbalanced a lot. You can combine frontloaded and backloaded horns, but they will have to be designed together. Cornu is developing a speaker with both front and rear horn (for the Fostex FE108EZ driver, a 10 cm fullrange unit) and the preliminary conclusion is that it's very hard, but when you get it right it's magical. ;-)

With specific regard for the Cornu-Oris combination: Simply screwing an Oris to the Cornu spirals wouldn't get the best out of the Oris and the Cornu horns.
