I would personally rotate it/them so the 4" dimension is vertical.

When you say built it with the correct orientation, do you mean as a center channel lying horizontally? So, if I use them as my Left/Right I should rotate them?

Yes. I was talking about the orientation of the horn itself. As I said, I have the Platinum series, and all the horns are the same orientation (3" horizontal, 4" vertical). Measure the rectangular opening of your horns with the speakers in their final position.


Here's another post about it (The original poster had modified his the wrong way).


BIC FH6-LCR Horn Tweeter Mod / Review of the DV-62si

The way he set it up, he sacrificed horizontal axis response for a better vertical response, but horizontal response typically has a much greater effect on how good the speaker sounds. Only rotate the horns if you are going to stand the LCR up vertically.

If you're in the US, you can order the FH6 for free pickup at your nearest Walmart for a no-risk 90 day trial, and compare the 2 speakers side by side for yourself.

They go in and out of stock every couple of weeks.

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

62CLRS is dome tweeter and FH6 LCR is a horn tweeter, which are known to be more sensitive. However, that 62CLRS was a great center channel when I had it. Very powerful speaker and lifelike sounds. Has good sensitivity, too.


Usually horns are known as being more sensitive, but in my upcoming speaker shootout, that myth will soon be proven wrong!!
