Myself, SoundMods, J-ROB and Tubedriver are using horns.

Anyone else?

Me, depending on when you ask and how strictly you define "horn". The tweeter in the Tannoys is technically a horn...

Not technically. The Tannoys are horn speakers! The the woofer cones extend the horn driver outlets like a large round exponential horn. :character-oldtimer:

And -- if you look closely you'll see that the Tannoy horn drivers are compression drivers not unlike Altec or JBL horn drivers.

Some might argue that the later models are more a wave-guide than a horn, but I'll stick with it being a horn. Of course, I've had quite a few others over the years, so I've been running horns almost full-time since 1997....

They can argue all they want. If it sounds like a horn, and looks like a horn, it is a HORN! :lol:
