Red Dead Redemption Soundtrack LP - Two Tracks

This is the first in a new series of postings featuring YouTube video embeds.  We are going to find out how some really high quality recordings sound on the New Corner Bass Horns.

These horns are the Real Deal.  They are designed to work efficiently throughout the audio frequency range.  No equalization is necessary.  Hardly any electrical input power is required for a comfortable listening level.  The horns are also highly efficient acoustic absorbers and provide effective acoustic treatment for the room.

This video is about 8 minutes long.

Fountek FE87 As Midrange Horn Driver

I just acquired four Fountek FE87 full-range speaker drivers.  I am always  on the lookout for midrange drivers that would be suitable for a midrange horn.  I did some free-air listening to pure sine waves from 27Hz to 880Hz and can detect no buzzing.  This is a plus, because if your horn driver has any buzzing, the horn will amplify the buzzing right along with everything else.  Here is an image of the test setup:

I have tried other small full-range drivers but even the new ones seem to buzz throughout the frequency range of interest.  The Fountek FE87s I have tested so far have a very clean sound.
