Should be fine; just don't turn it up to 11. Their sensitivity is not all that high.

Having lived with a pair of Little Horns and one of their stereo tube amps for a while, I will say they can be fun to listen to. They are not 'audiophile' speakers, though. I would be reluctant to use SS amplification with the speakers, although their powered sub with the built in stereo amp for the horns makes up an OK inexpensive system. The Hornlings may be less efficient than the Little Horns, but I wouldn't put big SS power on them.
Well, when I was at the shop talking with Ian, the owner/creator, we had everything running through their tube preamp/amp and it sounded fantastic for such a large workshop.
I am still waiting to pick them up and actually use them in a smaller enclosed room. They should be ready for pickup in two weeks so I will update as soon as I can once I get them home and all hooked up.
Thanks for the bring down Brian. They will sound splendid with a big SS amp. The Hornlings are three inch full range drivers that create a stunning three dimensional effect by rear loading a compression chamber through a geometric flair. Like blue jeans in the seventies.
What else would you recommend for a 3" rear loaded full range?
