Unihorn stands for Universal Back Loaded Horn. Ronald Waßen had been inspired by quite a few historic horn systems and designed the Unihorn with a high quality Seas Exotic F8 driver.

The horn consists of roughly 22 small boards forming the course of the horn inside the cabinet.

The full range driver is controlled by a crossover with wave trap and an absorption circuit. The wave trap reduces the level between 2 and 9 kHz over a wide band. The absorption circuit reduces the diaphragm resonance at around 3.2 kHz.

An excerpt from the Klang+Ton review

... "The diaphragm virtually sticks to every impulse. The Seas benefits audibly from the horn. The bass shows zero gravity and arrives with powerful, well structured and really deep vehemence. There is no exaggeration, sensationalism, aggressiveness or putting on an act. High-frequency instruments like triangle and cymbals are reproduced with substance and a wealth of colours. Vocals and instruments possess body and contour and are positioned within your reach. The atmosphere of a live concert - never mind the style of music - is reproduced like a duck takes to water. The meticulous reproduction of ambient noise like clapping, flipping, hacking, laughter etc. transports the listener right into the concert hall. Power handling is staggering and is sufficient for live concerts. Every silver lining has a cloud: this loudspeaker reproduces everything, also recording errors. Some of it you probably don't want to hear, especially vocals that are too sharp-edged. Well recorded music, however, you will discover again and thoroughly enjoy. "
