Hi all
I have a Lunt unmounted ERF that I am going to make a cell for, do I have to tilt the ERF?

Yes, I always do. Good practice as it throws any reflections that may occur.

Hi Paul,
my standard Lunt Double Stack unit 50mm has the ERF tilted by about 1mm, that should be more or less 1 degree angle

cheers
