Where are they used?

Tube loudspeakers are probably the oldest type of loudspeakers - in the beginning the sound was spread over large spaces thanks to tubes, which are nowadays the most important element of this type of equipment. Until recently horn loudspeakers were mostly used by professionals for sounding large outdoor areas such as various squares, parking lots, streets and sports venues. Horn loudspeakers are characterized by resistance to difficult weather conditions and, unlike classical loudspeakers, they have a really high acoustic power.

This type of speakers are also popular in cinemas and on stage. However horn loudspeakers are more and more popular among non-professionals. They are also used by home cinema enthusiasts and everyone who wants to really enjoy their favourite music with perfect sounds. In this situation we can find speakers, which will take up only a small amount of space.

How does it work?

The construction of a loudspeaker is based on the fact that the sound coming out of it is radiated thanks to an expanding tube. Depending on the particular model, the shape of the horn, the diaphragm structure and the magnetic system itself may differ significantly. Unlike typical speakers, these are distinguished by very high efficiency and more precise directivity.

An important advantage is also their efficiency, in other words high energy efficiency and a good ratio of acoustic quality (i.e. energy given out) to electrical quality (i.e. energy supplied). In case of professional sound reinforcement, energy saving and sound intensity turn out to be very important.

The sound of horn loudspeakers itself can be directed to specific points of your choice. This is possible thanks to a highly directed beam, which allows to provide adequate sound in large spaces.
