Great Male Vocals--Walter Wolfman Washington

Horn Speaker Recommendations
@atmasphere  ... " your amplifier investment dollar will be best served by a speaker of 16 ohms rather than 8 or 4"Curious, then why don't speaker manufacturers do this? Wouldn't they want their gear to sound the best possible?
