What Horn loaded speaker/ speaker system for $10k'ish and under

I’m looking to go potentially go back to a horn loaded speaker, or hybrid budget under $15k. I’ve had LaScala’s in the resent past (prior to my current Spendor D9.2’s that are for sale now) and loved them but I feel there is better out there for similar money.

JBL horns like the 4367 or 4349, S3900, S4700? Volti? LALS? others I’ve forgotten or not known.

I’d like to have efficiency above 90db,

extension to 35hz or close to it, I could live with subs though.

I’m not apposed to used in good condition, I will not buy black speakers though.



I would get the Cornwall IV.

They are an absolute bargain. Not perfect, but they do offer a lot of great attributes at the price.

in no particular order:

Altec Malibu

JBL DD5500

JBL 4343/4344/4345

I own the Malibu, DD5500, and 4343


best of luck in your search.



May I suggest a speaker from Rethm? The Maargas are in your price point and the sound is amazing. Built in active bass drivers. I own an older version of the Saadhana (one size up and the largest) and am always amazed at the sound quality. Always with great reviews

Here is a recent one


You have to look at PBN.  California custom speaker builder.  Petter is a genius and has been awarded many times for his work.  The M series is insane.  I just got lucky enough to get a pair. M1!  (2) 12 and a horn.  Amazing
