from great companyThe item actually was a direct replacement so that was no problem. What I think is important is how easy, helpful, and respectful the people/process was. I will not hesitate to call again for future adventures. Thanks for treating me like I was spending a ton of money.

from halfway horns?realized that these were cheap - but - the $2 bullets sound better!my ears are old, so horn loaded is my preference-refer to Klipsch high end speakers - this is what all should sound like!I am a radar engineer, designed and built my own systems at 15 years old, alwaysrebuilding older ones that have nice wood cabinets.in this case - old '73 Sansui 10" 2-ways with the nice lattice grillsguess I will need to go a little more $$$ to get a more clean sound?help out an old 3 time war zone veteran with some advice :O)

from Making LemonadeI have two old Realistic PA-100 speakers with 15" woofers and 2"x5" piezoelectric tweeters. Bass and treble were good but the midrange was a little weak as one might expect from this setup. I decided to fix that by replacing the piezo tweeters with the Pyle horns and a two-way crossover at 2 Khz. When the parts arrived I disconnected the piezo on one speaker and set the horn on top to test with the crossover and L-pad. I turned on the music expecting a big improvement. It was awful. The highs disappeared leaving a thin flat sound above the bass. A-B testing against the unmodified speaker just made the results seem worse. I tried using only the high pass portion of the crossover and I tried using just a capacitor in series with the horn but it was futile. Finally in desperation I reconnected the piezo tweeter and left the horn capacitor connected. The mid-range popped up nicely. Connecting and disconnecting the horn confirmed the improvement. (Try understanding the lyrics on Roy Orbison's Mean Woman Blues with a muddy middle!) The horn impedance measured about 6.5 Ohms from DC to 2 KHz and I finally settled on a 22uF capacitor which makes the crossover point about 1100 Hz. The woofer impedance is 17 Ohms and rising at 1 KHz so the parallel loading of the horn has little effect on the total load seen by the amplifier as it kicks in. I have attached a schematic in case anyone is interested in replicating my dirt cheap three way system. Note that the tweeter polarity is reversed in the PA-100; that's the way it came and I didn't fool with it.My advice to anyone thinking of purchasing the Pyle PH391 is to consider it as an upper mid-range only.

from Great ExperienceI bought 4 Pyle PH391 horns and they are wonderful. They have a very smooth yetbright sound. These horns combined with the Pyle 15" full range speakers gives you a great rock & roll sound system for smaller venues.

from Great for the priceI have two PA horn cabinets, the old Realistics finally gave out in one cabinet and I replaced the 4 horns with 4 of these. These were put into a tri-amped system and compared to the realistic, the high hiss is a bit softer and more manageable with these new ones.
