  • "Brought back a very good memory" by Robroy42 on 1/19/2014
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I sold HI-Fi for jafco in the 70's. One of my friends, an acoustic engineer, had designed his own speakers, each using two altec 15's and a large altec horn, powered by a phase linear 750. The sound was so amazing that I remember it to this day. (more on that later)

    So, anyway, I used these tweeters to replace the blown piezo tweeters in a couple of Kustom floor monitors / pa speakers (I also replaced the 15" woofers with MCM woofers, but that's another review). My speakers now sound incredible. Absolutely HI-FI! You could use them in a home stereo and be more than pleased with the sound quality.

    Back to my friend's custom Altecs. In experimenting with my new speakers, I was listening to some Frank Sinatra and the sound was so smooth and the midrange so clear and powerful that I was suddenly transported to that room listening to Genesis' "Firth of Fifth" on my friend's stereo that day back in 1978.

    BTW, the highs are great too. It's just that that sort of clear and non peaky midrange is a rare thing in a "high volume" speaker. These don't just have it. They nail it!

    And if I closed my eyes, Frank was in the room. It caused my wife to get up from her book and dance with me. :)

  • "Pyle PDS442 Horn Driver (MCM Part 53-750)" by laynego on 9/25/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    While doing a mid-west county fair tour this summer, we blew the horn drivers in both of our JBL MRX525's. My first thought was to replace with identical drivers, thinking, "I don't want to lose the JBL quality sound". At the same time, it didn't seem too smart to get the same thing that already failed once. With the stock drivers rated 70 watts in cabinets rated at 1000 watt peak, I thought I could at least try a higher wattage driver, see if I don't lose too much in sound quality or efficiency...and hopefully improve durability for the outdoor road show. What a great surprise when these Pyle PDS442 drivers sounded GREAT! They actually sound stronger, cleaner and better balanced with the 15" drivers in the cabinets. I'm sure at least someone reading this is saying "no way $25 Pyle horn drivers working better than JBL 2408H" ($160 each). Well believe it.
