I've heard venoms so I'm curious to hear commonts on how the horn version sounds, compared to other speakers and to the venoms in a conventional alignment. When I heard venoms at jaycar (bigger ones), I thought they were terrible, as with all of their subs bar one which had very little output Since then, however, I've built one from a Jaycar driver on special (response 10" that titanium driver on special for $50) ... if crossed fairly low, it sounds quite decent. I'm not sure if those Jaycar subs were junk, or if they were just poorly implemented.

Its hard to say with all of their stuff. I think their demo systems are usually pretty crap though. Here in NZ from what I can tell the venoms have a good rep for how cheap they are.

Here are some threads about them on NZIce mag forums:

I quite like the titaniums. They go well and were really cheap. Can't complain:

Im assuming you did your own design work? Would look impressive to people who've never seen a horn so are used to normal ports...
