Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

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

I have heard something similar. Those horns which are designed more for pattern control (i.e, waveguides) as opposed to high efficiency seem to have less of that "honk."

There was a peer review study conducted for different speakers such as conventional monkey coffins and different horns. The shorter horns (less than 1 foot deep if I remember right) had a sound characteristic very similar to conventional monkey coffins.

Maybe the cause, or a contributing cause, are the HOMs which horns can produce. You can read all about HOMs elsewhere (I even forgot what the acronym stands for - ask Earle Geddes).
