Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: Here's one thought about why...

Hard to imagine anyone liking horn honk but generally this "sound" is not the fault of the horn but rather the crossover.

Well a better description is that in the old days, there was no way to design a crossover other than to look up values on a table or calculation.

While the calculations are correct, they are only correct IF one has a resistor as the termination and loudspeakers, especially compression drivers are not much like a resistor.

Usually one finds that there is a peak in the response related to the impedance peak at least on older horn systems and to me, it doesn't look like there is a lot going on now scientifically with horns except for some proponents like myself.
