Speaker Of Unusual Size - Hornmassive By Matt Hope

 Sculptor Matt Hope spent six months designing and 14 months building Hornmassive and it is impressive. I do not tire of looking at it. This is a giant mobile mono system. WOW! I'd love to hear this one.

Calix Horn Speakers

The Calix speakers are hand made in Taiwan. I picked a couple examples I thought were interesting but they actually have a broad product line. 
The Neoclassic is a nice design but it would have been nice to integrate the tweeter into the cabinet. 

The Phoenix family of speakers are really interesting looking with some nice features. The product line has five different models.
I like the height adjustment on the mid horn. 
 External crossover.
 Just in case you needed some bling here is the diamond version.
 300lbs each.........

Horns From Down Under - Azurahorn

These guys in Perth build some great horns. I wish they were closer as they can't ship their larger horns. Hmm.. perhaps we could fill a large storage container and ship them to New Orleans :).  The horns are in the following flare rates: 160Hz, 204Hz, 340Hz, 425Hz and 550Hz. Those of us outside of Australia are restricted to the 425Hz and 550Hz. They sound superb and would do well on top of any big bass horns. Check out the impressive curves here

A few examples from their gallery. Their push pull horn is very interesting.

Pretty cool horn in the park fun. Doesn't seem to be anything hooked up to it so they appear to be just annoying the locals with the horn. Hmm I might need one of these.

Oswalds Mill Monarch

The first time I saw the Monarch I thought oh man the Monarch is gonna be pissed. If you watch the venture brothers its pretty funny otherwise maybe not lol.... Oh well. I'd like to think they named it after The Monarch instead of the butterfly.

The Monarch is a nice looking speaker and I do like two way speakers for simplicity sake. Looks like a Bill Woods horn on top which isn't a big surprise.

From OMA.
The OMA Monarch is the new standard for a two way speaker. Two 15" woofers mounted in a unique enclosure deliver bass that no high end design using small woofers can even hope to match. 104db efficiency (1w/1m) means any low powered tube amplifier can drive the Monarch. Large solid wood baffles help load the woofers and make room placement far less demanding. OMA's proprietary cast aluminum alloy horn and compression driver cover the midrange and high frequencies, with superb integration due to a simple crossover network.

The Monarch is available in a range of wood types and finishes. Shown in Pennsylvania Black Walnut.
