I upgraded my speakers with bullet tweeters 10 or 12 years ago and would like to try horns with drivers. Not sure what I am looking for something that will handle the power from the WOPL 400... new or used but don't want to go over about $200.... also thinking about cross overs. Any suggestions??

To do horns right takes a lot of money......200.00 will just drive you from the room screaming...

The crossovers for my K's were 1600.00......

They say if there is a will there is a way..... got to be something out there to get the job done...

If I were a rich man I would probably be looking at something like this

I'm very happy with my Vandersteen's...with no horns involved. I have some horns I would consider shipping to a Phoenix member for shipping.

Get a set of speakerlab k-horns. Then you upgrade them over time. About $3000 should get it done right Lee?
That is what I have in mind... start somewhere and maybe later upgrade as long as the horns have something standard to upgrade drivers down the road....
