from Good for the Price!This was my first Horn purchase so I can't compare it to others first hand.Attached is my first measurement with it mounted to a Selenium D220Ti-OMF-8. The X-over was a straight forward 24 db LR at 1.32kHz. Measurement was slightly off axis toward the wider dispersion side of this horn. The speaker was laying face up in a 60Wx90Lx20-30'H warehouse during RTA'ing.

from Nexo copiesThese horns are loosely modeled after the Nexo asymetrical horn. Unfortunately they are still Pyle quality. The plastic molding is very poor. They are of a medium strength, but I wouldn't hang a JBL driver off of them without extra support. Worst of all, the entrant hole is not exactly 1" plus mine had molding flaws that left ripples and hairs in the throat. Also the mounting holes were way off. Even if my Selenium D220 fit the holes (it didn't) they wouldn't have lined up with the horn mouth anyway.All in all, the sound from this flawed horn is pretty dang good. Just expect to do a lot of work to get your driver mounted.

from AWESOME!I've owned this driver for 1 week now. I've listened to it for probably 50+ hours with all kinds os music, and movies. No live use to speak of yet. Using a Selenium DH200E driver, x-over 6db/octave @3khz. This horn is immaculate! I have a new favorite. completely transparent. I was completely surprised to hear almost no diffraction distortion in the long throw section of the horn (it IS a Nexo ripoff as I previously suggested, but not an exact copy). I am thoroughly satisfied with this horn. I hope PE doesn't realize the inherent value of this product and up their price on it, cause @ $10 it's a steal!

from nexo ripoff?I don't own one of these yet, so I may be mistaken (but I don't think I am), but this horn looks like a direct ripoff of the horn used in the Nexo 8" 2-way. If you look closely you'll see the throat of the horn expands @ a different rate from the top of the horn to the bottom (the throat's 12 o'clock expands slowly, the 6 o'clock quickly). This is something I've only seen in Nexo cabs.
