Hi Robert, I use a pair of KCS Hybrid basshorns, they stand 84" tall and use twin Eminence 18" drivers. The horn measures 16 feet in length. They are very quick and have a viscereal impact. They sounded very good with my Orphean horns. I sold the Orpheans to a friend and am now using Oris 150 horns with Lowther PM4A's using AER cones which sound almost as good as the Orpheans. Horn loaded bass is hard to beat.

But if here are Orphean owners on what hight are you listening to the Orphean horns?

Yes I did in the past but it is useless unless you cross at very low frequencies (<100Hz). If not then time alignment will never be 100% giving a nice full and warm but less accurate and less detailed bass with less precise focus as bonus...
