Avantgarde

Avantguarde speakers are gigantic and often candy-colored horn speakers feature gigantic round flanges. They are the visual definition of why a wife might file for divorce about a pair of loudspeakers.

Avantgarde's horn drivers were very efficient, thus audiophiles would match them with low-powered single ended tube amps (SETs) for the "hot setup."

The Avantgarde Trio Classico, for example, is 61 inches tall, has a claimed sensitivity of 109 dB, and a frequency range of 100 Hz to 20 kHz. The Avantgarde Duo Primo is 71 inches tall, has a claimed frequency response of 170 Hz to 20 kHz and a sensitivity of 107 dB. The enormous Avantgarde Basshorn subwoofer is 80 inches wide, 90 inches tall, and weighs nearly 1200 pounds. It is claimed to produce down to 18 Hz.
