    When looking at the components of an amp I usually see the word "horn". On the Eden site I see some speakers have a "cast bell horn". Yesterday I went to a music shop and saw some amps had a tag that said "w/ horn".

    Argh! What is it?

  2. It is a high frequency tweeter used to reproduce those lovely high end clicks and harmonics that bigger speakers will not faithfully reproduce.
