All new loudspeakers need at least 6 months to find a proper location. Give at least a week for new Mi-Horned speakers' setup.
Mi-Horns work best for Home Theater sound system. There is no better way to have the best movie theater sound for Home Theater than Mi-Horns. (Unless you have Altec A7.)
1)Mi-Horn should face straight to a listener.
2)The sound absorbers behind a listening chair.
3)A powered sub-woofer.
4)More listening distance.
5)Raise the volume to hear the difference.
6)Ask wife and kids for opinion about new sound. Your listening habit may be hard to change. Many audiophiles listen only sound. Not music. Your wife is not an audiophile. She only listen music. Please ask her.
Filling the gap.
Fill a gap between the base and the speaker front panel with a foam.
The gap and a long foam strip.
Some users like the sound without filling the gap. It depends on your taste and a room acoustics.
Control the quantity of high frequency
The quantity of high frequency may be controlled for the frequency balance. Covering the entire tweeter with the cloth is not a better way to reduce the quantity of sound. It will lose the clarity and details. Mi-Horn lets users control high frequencies without losing the transparency and details.
Insert a foam ring in the inside of 1-incher base. Use similar color foam.
Standard 1-incher base with 1 foam More reduction in treble with 2 rings.
Insert foam rings in the throat of 1-incher horn for more reduction of tweeter sound.
A foam ring in inside horn for more reduction. 2 foam rings for even more reduction.
Also, foams may slide down from the throat to the mouth of horn for more reduction.
Combination of Horn and base for your taste.

More effective than sponge ring. Good for HT rear spkr.
More effect on high freq. Maximum effect.
The twisted base problem.
Installed base on the driver may be twisted due to slight different height of spade terminals or tightness of screws. The horn may not stay on the twisted base. This may be corrected by pressing parts of base between spade terminals to straighten the plate.
