    These are extremely beautiful wooden horns. On eBay there are a lot of pictures under this link http://membres.lycos.fr/brokaz/
    It looks like building instructions, but the creator must be very skilled.

    I just bought these horns. Communication with Phil has been excellent.
    My brother was able to read the web site in Dutch and also paid for it.
    Will keep everybody posted when they arrive.

    I'm not getting this. 2404, 2342, 2344(A), PH316, even, cheeks are not spherical.

    Hello Zilch !

    I am fully aware that these horns are not a small copy of the 2344. Maybe Phil should have made that clear in his advertisement. I bought them due to my Lust for horns. I will experiment with them. If I can not make them sound right due to lack of expertise, there will be 2 options. Send them to you, or use them as a very decorative item on top of my 4435's as an addition to the other horns. The origin of this thread however was pictures of horn systems.
    Here they come :
    Zilch, keep up the good work. I did always enjoy your expertise.

    New Thread on DIY Oblate Spheroid Waveguides

    In response to the request (post 51) from Titanium Dome

    Rather than clutter up the "Horn system pictures" thread, I have chosen to start a new thread under the DIY section, with more details of the design and images.

    the thread is called:
    DIY Axially symmetric oblate spheroid CD waveguides, in solid Oak

    http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=123390&postcount=1 >

    Work and Family keep me pretty busy, so I don't have too much time to spare for posting, but I will attempt to get all the images up today or tomorrow, and as always, I invite response/question, etc.

    ...with mid-bass horn

    These use esoteric Ale compression drivers with a straight real midbass horn with compression driver.

    Anybody listened to these unusual things in a decent listening environment ?

    Yep... I know the designer. I believe he has sold three pairs of them. They are really amazing... but they are quite a commitment in terms of cost and real-estate... speaking of real-estate, they cost more than some people's houses.

    Here is an Absolute Sound review of them... I have heard them with the DEQX and Pass Labs crossovers, but not the Marchands. I would agree with what was said about them with the DEQX crossovers.

    Here is a thread I started on them some time back before I heard the final version.

    ... magico ultimate... 88 dB for woofer. Dimensions ... 94"x18"x40". Weight: approximately 800 lbs.
    It is a design, so you like it or not.

    But in a 5-way horn loaded loudspeaker system I would really enjoy the impact of a bass horn with great efficiency instead of a 88 db woofer. An appropriate bass horn doesn't have pronounced bass, it has pure power. Sometimes you think something is missing. But when you have left the room then you know what is was.

    I just noticed this... the large midbass horn is driven by an 11" or 12" TAD driver, not a compression driver.

    Much of the "impact" we hear is higher up in frequency... I didn't find it lacking here... and besides the damn things are huge already... a bass horn would be insanely huge.

    I have an article on that Magico system in an audio mag from last January.

    They pay particular attention to making the horn, precision manufacturing from aircraft grade alauminum, and lots of crossbracing, its supposed to be resonance free.

    9w tube amps on the HF and upper midrange, 22w tube amps on the midbass section, and high power SS for the direct radiating LF, and they offer DEQX or Marchand crossovers for active xovers, and they say their Marchands are heavily customized.

    I would like to hear this system.

    Four months to build a pair of those Magico midbass horns? That's either bullshit or somebody doesn't know what they're doing.

    When I was a Boilermaker I could'a knocked out a pair of those in a couple of days at the longest. Including the layout work. Big deal.
