Have heard them many times at shows and can say they are about the best current production horn system you are likely to hear.
He does about as good a job of crossing over between mid and mid-bass and then to the sub as I have heard and speaking as a horn lover who is WELL aware of the many pitfalls of horns, I can say that the Volti Audio horn system has very few weak spots.
I have a distinct crush on them and even thought of self importing a pair to the UK. However the drop in the value of the pound, shipping, 4% duty and 20% VAT rules them out even if I had the space.
A guy in the UK does something similar based around the smaller Klipsch Belle. Check the link and look at the standard of that woodwork on the treble and mid horn. 10,500 gbp ain't bad either. Probably too high a bass cut off for me but he says he is working on a bigger one. One day.
and that is NOT easy.
Have a pretty good relationship with a fair number of horn speaker builders here on the West Coast and only know of a very few full range horn systems and they are indeed HUGE!
I have Edgar Horns which roll off at about 80 Hz. Bass is only in my imagination as I have not found a really good solution for an integrated sub. Actually even the crossover between 500Hz tractrix and the folded mid-bass horn is problematic.
But I get music from 8 watt 300b amps. :-)
