starting off I want to Thank Romy for hosting this forum Lots of information to think on...we as some people here have much in common some not so much hense the post

I attend many live un-amplified operas, college band, and symphonic music geners I also have taken part in recording some of these events
so i have some knowledge and understanding of what real music sounds like.... I call this musical IQ some people have it and some just dont
(reviewers) point in all this I see romy and others  talk a lot about music in musical ways which is very good as I have really grown tired of your typical audiophool who knows nothing about music...... Idiots! 

but this is where we part ways....Horn systems do not play music! there is no horn system that even resembles real music maybe
good for crap rock studio shit or PA use...idiots etc.. IMO

I have listened to several home built horn systems and a few commercial systems they all suck ...they all have non musical distortion! in a not good way!! so what gives? am i missing something are you all deaf too?

Lawrence,  am not surprised that you were disappointed listening a “several home built horn systems and a few commercial systems.”  Most horn-loaded installations are not good at all and most of audio people who do not deal with horns in more or less evolved fashion do not know that horn-loading might sound different if done properly.

I am bit at lost when you ask “why horn loaded systems?!” Are you asking why I am using horns or why you do not use horns? I do not know why you do not and I do not insist that you do.  You do not see me making sweeping statement like you do: “horn system that even resembles real music”. I perfectly admit that non-horn system might sound fine and I have heard them.  It happens that I use horns and it happens that I know how to get from them the sound I need. Do I need to ask your approval, consent or blessing?

Generally any technology or topology has own advantages and disadvantages. Horns do have many advantages and I very much like to capitalize on them. I can’t argue with your limited exposure nor educate you if you have no interest.  If you do not like horns then it is perfectly fine – juts do not use them. If you have other means the get the sound that with your musical IQ you find satisfactory then it is good for you and I do not mind if you educate me.
