Default Hornshoppe horns Getting a make over?

Well hello again diyers. I just went to ed's wedsite the hornshoppe and went to the forum and saw that he has a new speakers after 10 years and running? I wonder if its because of the new horn box over on steve deckers web page? Looks very close to the one ed was making do to some changes in the front bottom with some tube thing? Well I just want to know what you all thought? I have never had a pair of horns but, I know ed is a swell guy.. Ed I hope you read this I was saving up for a pair of your horns now what do I do?? jm

IINM, Ed's "new" speaker consists of Heil dipole AMT and outboard crossover at 800Hz added to the existing enclosure making it a true 2-way - as opposed to simple addition of super-tweeter. Previously he had been experimenting with various super-tweeters such as T90 etc. No doubt properly implemented this will be a killer system, but not cheap. At $875 per pair for the AMTs, XOs and probably wiring harness, he's not making a ton of money.

Ed has famously maintained upgrade ability as a key part of his customer service over the years, and will never leave a Horn owner behind.



The new Deckert design is very interesting, and without getting political again, there has been some discussion as to what genus classification it should fall into - but it is certainly quite different from Ed's in several respects - not the least of which is sensitivity.

I'm still not sure that the mouth of a full bandwidth "horn" speaker is the best place to install a tube amp, but then I'm not a world class designer.

If you're curious about the timing - why not ask Ed?
