The central chassis, known as a compression chamber, is constructed of three concentric pipes, which was found, said the company, to be sonically superior to the standard ‘folded pipe’ system seen in standard speakers. At the top is a suspended radial diffuser cone made from wood.

    Why is it being called a horn speaker, it’s using a single 8 inch cone speaker firing upward. Full range?

      Yes, my mistake. It is, in fact, a full range unit. I was reading text on Lowther and got the wrong end of the stick 🙂 Thanks for the heads up, I’ll correct that now.
