Are Klipsch , JBL, Altec and other horn speakers harsh sounding? My next speaker to try out was going to be a horn speaker of some kind probably an old pair of Klipsch (La Sacala)or an Altec or JBL. I have heard some of the Klipsh line but not in my home so I really don't know what they sound like after listening to them for hours. After my experience with the JBL S312s I am now wondering if this is what a horn speaker will be like. The S312s are very detailed , bright sounding and fatiguing. Very fun to listen to for an album, after that my ears cannot take much more. Does anyone here own some old Altec A7s or vintage Klipsch speakers and listen to them for 3 or 4 hours at a time?
