Post Subject: The CES's 2011 hornsPosted by Romy the Cat on: 1/7/2011

I wonder if any new interning horns ideas are present at CES. There is a post at the hi-fi-heroin site:

… that depicts a new speaker. I kind of like it and don’t.  It is 3-way speaker at the bottom it has push-pull looks like 15” drivers. In front it has a very shallow horn give probably one-three dB at 200Hz. There is back exit from that 15”. I would estimate 80-70Hz. The speaker has those wings from 30s that shall pouch some additional upperbass forward. This configuration is of cause is self-defeatable for the driver. On the top there is some kind of 12 multicell with exit of at least 150Hz. I think a MF driver live in this horn but the horn is very strange.  It flat and has no curve, it means the length of the middle pipe and the side pipes are different – not too kosher. The biggest problem that I with it is the relation between the size of the MF horn and the depth of the horn. This horn looks like 15” deep and will not provide any QE at all. It acts more like a diffuser, which might not too bad itself. Between the MF and bass channels there is a WE type tweeter with a pipe.

 I like in this speaker that whoever behind it was trying to do something different but I do not know that they accomplished.
