Horn No.1689 is the latest ES Circular horn featuring a 1" throat and 1kHz cutoff Frequency. The horn has been highly optimized for the controlled coverage down to the horn's cutoff Frequency.  This is achieved by using a large horn mouth area along with a high flare rate. Not only does this provide controlled coverage, but it also completely eliminates any horn colouration due to resonances and edge diffraction. This brings out the full potential of your compression driver in terms of sound quality.  

This horn is featured in my blog here where I test the horn with three different compression drivers. 

Construction

These horns are constructed from solid walnut hardwood. The horn is precision CNC machined from a solid piece of stock material. This means that no gluing of parts are done after machining. This ensures excellent fit and finish. The rear podium mount is integrated into the horn for an elegant appearance. 

The horns are sanded and finished with Rubio MonoCoat providing a hard durable finish that looks natural.
