Hi everyone,

I have just found these in my unit, they seem to be some sort of speaker for a sound rig.

Does anyone know what they are or when they were made?

Heres a couple of pics.

Those are vintage Orange Bouncer Horn Cabinets. Seen in the 1973 catalogue here: http://forum.orangeamps.com/viewtopic.php?t=4674

They are to be used with a PA. Are probably worth some money too.

I never really thought about it before, but those cabs have some serious horn action going on. Modern PA cabs usually have a single horn- these have four!!!

Wonder how they sound?

Are horns more efficent now, or do speakers just have more treble reproduction?
