Oh yeah polars will be normalized, well at least the sonograms will.
When it comes to the second round of waveguide testing I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks for the offer Pitviper, You may get a PM if I know specifically what day beforehand I might end up doing some of the testing. You could also have a listen to the some of the speakers that don't have their insides strewn about
, might be good to get an outside opinion on the voicing of some new ones in the works.

You could get most everything you need to know from the horizontal pattern but verticals will be tested for good measure. A horn with less spill (tighter control) vertically is usually a good thing when trying to reduce floor/ceiling reflections.
