Default Horning Alkibiades - Fullrange with very high frequency Tweeter ? - Crossover Network

I am looking for test reports, technical details and the schematic of the Horning Hybrid System model "Alkibiades" (Horning's first loudspeaker model - so I think).

Who can upload this?

The only test report, that I know, was in German's magazine "IMAGE HIFI" issue 3/1995 - for a cover picture of those magazine go to ebay auction

some URLs:
Lowther. - Page 3 - The Art of Sound Forum
Alkibiades Loudspeakers Loudspeaker Manufacturer & Wholesale Supplier From Denmark - Horning Hybrid Systems
Audio Asylum Thread Printer

There are no details on the web arround this loudspeaker.
Thank you very much for your informations.

If I'm not mistaking, there is a second Lowther inside the horn? And I have heard this speaker....

Hi tiefbassuebertr,
If you need to repair them why don't you give them a call,
Tommy Hørning's loudspeakers link here.

I don't need a repair service.
I am just looking for test reports, measuring results and technical details so as the crossover schematic of this first model, as I mentioned already in my first post.
I intend to sell this speakers for a friend in my area without internet.
For this reason (and to find an auction text in detail with the acoustical advantages) I want to have this mentioned informations.
German's magazine IMAGE-hifi don't provide the wanted informations by the Horning Alkibiades SIGNATURE Gold - particularly measurement results you don't find there in general.

In the meantime I have heard this speaker. For me it is one of the best high resolution speaker, particularly in the low SPL area.

There is a website from the currently owner of this loudspeakers - go to
Stimmkorrektur
and to get contact, go to
