Define "sound good".

I doubt they'll sound as good as a decent home hifi - PA speakers (unless you're paying a lot) rarely do.

I've never heard them, give them a try and see what you think.

You can use them with a home amplifier.

They probably won't sound great (in terms of HiFi), but will probably be very loud.

I'll second the rather cheap look to those Punch PA loudspeakers. Although those horns may or may not be Piezos ....the lower range those small horns will go will probably be around 3-3.5K....as such they will be putting lots of "stress" upon those big fifteens, trying to get up to 3K in frequency. While it might be "OK" for PA work...if you listen intently, voices and particular similar sources will sound "muddy" & rather in-accurate. A more suitable horn would be a rather large unit that would occupy the entire upper half of that enclosure with a 17" by 11" horn...or thereabouts.
To the original poster*** is this image we see, the set that you have??

Cool Punch PA Speakers

I contacted the fellow who is selling them and he knows nothing about hifi - I want an inexpensive set of PA speaks for DJ use with my big heavies seen here:

(note the Carver cube was used just because I was too lazy to hall out my huge and heavy Pro Amp for the vid)

I want a smaller set of PA speaks to act as tops for these guys (using Pioneer HPM-100's but they ain't rugged enough although they do sound fabulous and easily keep up). Also want the smaller PA speaks to act as stand alones for House parties and small venues. The guy wants $100 CDN for two so I thought I would at least have a listen tomorrow (Sunday)
