1. Compression horn, e.g., Tannoy, Klipsch.
2. Honky horn, e.g., Fostex, Lowther.
You want the first kind.
I have to disagree with you about horns which honk. Among other horns I use DSPed Oris 150 horns driven by AER-MD3 drivers. I hear no honk.
I remember once listening to a pair of Tannoy speakers with pepper pot HF horns, and in that room and with that system they honked like wild geese.
I concur; I too use AER drivers with Oris 150 horns (with no DSP) and have never heard "honk." With Lowther drivers I heard plenty of "shout," but with the AER's I just hear music.
It is quite easy to have a honking compression horn, before CAD it used to be common too.
Just take some classic pepperpot Tannoys, remove the notch filter from the xover and honking abounds.
I didn't think Lowthers were particularly honky but they were particularly bad speakers in many other ways. To this day the worst speakers above $2k I've come across in well over 30 years.
I have Lowthers. They don't honk
Lowther makes horns?
Have Fun and Enjoy the Music

True on two.
How about ALTEC and GPA on (1) ?????, or maybe ONLY those two for (1). JBL ?? Maybe. KLANGFILM WW2, yes but unobtainium !! ALTEC and latest GPA is nice.
