What do you mean by "horning"? that's a new one for me.
Not sure exactly what is mechanically happening, except that certain frequencies "horn" or spike out due to the back-of-speaker to wall-to-speaker-again refelction time. Basically, the opposite of "flat frequency response," where certain individual frequencies become really prominent. I think these are often low-mid frequencies and not so much high frequencies.

Others here probably know a lot more about what's actually going on - I've heard horning soffited speakers more often than not, and they can be devastating to a mix cos of the way you compensate for the errant frequencies!
