Wow: thanks Steve, Klaus, Orioki, Martyn, Rich, Walt, Randolf, and
mdfrancey all for bringing new light to this subject.

I received the Wahlstrom paper from Walt and found it informative and
helpful towards making a decision about focal length.  I'm thinking
now I'll try a focus of 1/4 dish depth as the basis for my design.

Wahlstrom mentions filtering "-6 dB per octave above 1000 Hz to
compensate for the reflector response =85"  Is that close to what you
would suggest?
