Bose has had limited success in PRO CINEMA. This is what they use...

I'd imagine movie theatres could fit basshorns quite readily...

They could use bass horns, but only the back of the theater would get the full bass response. With the advent of modern high power amplifiers, bass horns (Altec VOT) have been replaced with large direct radiating subs. The JBL dual 18" sub is a great box. It's 1200 watts at 4 ohms, and stays pretty clean all the way down. These drivers are also used in JBL's SR4719X live PA box.

Cheers,
Zach

for a "home" theater an IB sub is usually the best choice IMO-cheap,plenty of output to below 20 Hz and no big boxes in the room...but for "real" theaters it would probably require too many drivers
