Hi Mike
I have a 4BA 11ft above a EF320 and it works fine. I know this is not
exactly what you asked about but I thought it might be close. Tom at Force12
told my to put the 4BA above the EF320 I would gues the same recommendation
would hold for the EF420.  He said the pattern would be bad with the EF320
on top.
