ALE Acoustic


On the top of this page you can find an overview of all brands that supply horn speakers.

The cone is the oldest and simplest acoustic horn and, as the megaphone, is still used by cheerleaders and lifeguards as a passive amplifier of their voices. Because the conic section shape describes a portion of a perfect sphere of radiated sound, cones have no phase or amplitude distortion of the wavefront. The acoustic loading provided by the cone does not extend the low frequency limit low enough for most modern purposes, with its output energy markedly less than later designs throughout the bottom two octaves of the cone's intended frequency range.
