I poured over his articles in Speaker Builder Magazine, he was a pathfinder in trying to develop a rational basis to front horn speaker design, long before computer modeling simplified the task. He will be missed. RIP.

I met Bruce Edgar in 2001 THE Show in Las Vegas. Never heard his creations before. He was exhibiting large horns in a small room. Not much of traffic to his room. Moment I sat in the listening position, was drawn immediately into the music. Everything was so natural and realistic. Ended up sitting there for half-an-hour.

I remembered those speakers were Edgar Titans, but lookin at pics online, i think the speakers the speakers exhibited were larger than Titans. The inside of the mid-bass horn was black, not the best sight. Bruce explained that he uses truck undercoat in side the horns to control reflections.

Great Guy. RIP.
