Horns & Drivers                                                                                                            





We are offering individual, customized horn solutions, based on the traditional Designs of Western Electric, but in a modern way of design and development. Horns without any kind of coloration or "horn sound". 

On the top you can see the Sato. Also we are offring the small Sato, the Western Electric 15A and the Hornsoltions WE66A. As tweeter horns we are using the outstanding Elysio horns. HT 9, HT16 and the HT 25. For bass horns or Open Baffles, please contact us.



Wir bieten Ihnen individuelle auf den Kunden, und vor allem auf seinen Raum zugeschnittene Lösungen. Dies umfasst Basshörner, Mitteltonhörner wie das Satohorn, das WE15A, das WE66A oder das kleine Sato, welches dem kleinen WE22A  in seinen Maßen und der unteren Grenzfrequenz sehr ähnlich ist. Des Weiteren bieten wir unterschiedliche Varianten für den Hochtonbereich, wie das Elysio Hochtonhorn unseres Kooperationspartners Elysio Acoustic. Für maaßgeschneiderte und auf ihren Raum angepasste Bass Lösungen setzen sie sich bitte persönlich mit uns in Verbindung. Zusätzlich greifen wir auf computergestützte Einmessverfahren zurück, welche es uns erlauben jedes unserer Systeme weltweit in Echtzeit einzumessen. Das ganze auf Wunsch phasenkorrekt über den kompletten Frequenzgang per Amplituden Einmessung.











The Satohorn

The Satohorn was designed by the great Mr Susumo Sato in the late 60th. He wanted to design a Horn which is a little bit smaller than the Western Electric WE15A, but still able to play the deepest Midrange Frequencies.

Indeed the sato even has a more linear Frequency response than all the traditional WE Horns. For Frequencyresponse Measurements please scroll down.


The original Sato was around 180 cm long to mount a 2" compression driver and had a straigt Throat.

The Hornsolutions Satohorn is a longer version to mount a 3/4" or 1" Compressiondriver and has a curved Throat like the Westen Electric Horns.

Throat of the Satohorn

Hornsolutions is the only Company which offers the Sato with the curved Throat.

The small Satohorn with WAF 

The small Sato we've developed for people with smaller Space or the ones,  who have to deal with the WAF. It's not a  Western Electric WE22A Copy, but the Frequencyresponse and the cut-off is nearly equal. We also offering very small Bass Enclosures based on the Altec Voice of the Theater which are a perfect with our "Babysato".

Straight Throat small Sato

The small Sato can be ordered with straight or curved Throat

The Western Electric WE66A

The WE66A wasn't designed by Western Electric. The design was an idea of the great Jean Hiraga many years ago.


The complete horn is an 33% reduced version of the Western Electrric 15A. Thats why it's called 66A. It is simply 66% of the 15A.

In our opinion, the most beautiful horn on planet Earth.

The ultimate sounding 1920th survivor horn



The Hornsolutions BH 416/515

One of our bass horn designs. This bass horn uses two Altec 416B or 515B chassis. It#s not an pure frontloaded horn construction. We also use reflex channels of nearly 180 cm to reach a lower frequencyresponse. The BH 416 can be used from 25Hz up to 1000Hz and the BH 515 can be used from 35 up to 1200Hz-

Elysio Acoustics Tweeterhorns

For 5 Years now we have been using the Elysio Tweeterhorn in our Showroom. First we started with a Prototyp of the small HT 25, which covers the frequency range from 2.500Hz up to 20.000Hz. 

Today we use these Horns in all our Sytems.

Depending on the size of the Bass-Midrangehorn we choose the HT 25 in case of the small Sato, the HT 16 we combine with the Satohorn and the WE66A and the HT 9 we use in combination with the Western Electric 15A.

In the Photo above you can see a HT 9 implemented in the WE15A.

As you can see we suspend the Elysio horns inside the Mouth of the larger snail horns. This makes for a concentrical arrangement of the drivers similar to the old Altec 605 Duplex and the Tannoy dual concentric drivers. All the Drivers are on the same Soundaxis.

The rersult of this speaker arrangementis is one Part of our success.

On top the Elysio horns are build with special covers at the backside to prevent internal reflections inside of our snail horns. 

The Elysio Horn can be used in all kinds of large horns and also in other types of speaker designs.

There are three Size versions available. 




HT 9          900Hz till 20.000Hz

Size:           33x36x70 cm


Price 7.500.-€

All three Versions are available in any RAL color and in 3 different directivity ranges


100°/100°, 80° / 60°, 70° / 40°.



Price includes a custom made passiv filter and compression driver in case of the HT 25 and HT 16











Elysio HT 16

For high frequencies we simply trust in the work of Elysio Acoustics HT horns

Compression-driver 666

The compression driver is one of the most important parts in any horn system. Low distortion, a high SPL and a flat response are the main goals during the Development. 


The Measurerment of our 666 compression driver demonstrates the extrem low distortion and the Ultra flat response. On the actual market our driver has simply no competitioner.
