Those look great!
I have heard the Altec versions and they were fantastic.

Haven't seen Michael' site in some time, it does seem to be offline.

Maybe he can be reached by email?

onemichaelchrist at hotmail.com

just put the @ sign where it belongs.

Thank you panomaniac, do you know any diy web-site mention about the wooden multicell horn project?

And how about this wooden horn? Anybody know it? Is it a diy or commercial product? Where can I buy it?

That horn is an Onken, I think. Onken drivers too.

It is in a very large and famous home installation in France. It has been reviewed in several magazines and websites. I'll see if I can find the links when I get home. Maybe that's were you found the photos?

Talk about bass horns!!

Here is a link to the system pictured. Belongs to Mr. Roggero in the south of France.

Giant System.

Article says those are Onken multicell horns and Onken 2" dirivers.

Enjoy!

Onken is Japnese. I think they are still in production.
You'll have to cruise the Japanese sites. But Onken should be well known in Hong Kong. Right?
