If you never knew, horn speakers, can be extremely efficient.
That extra efficiency often means your speakers sound louder with same amount of power.
But you're an audiophile, not an ecologist, right, so who cares?!
Well, the amplifiers don't get pushed into distortion regions as easily, so the sound quality can be improved.
Horn loudspeakers fell out fashion many years ago, but slowly people are waking up to them again.
