The M-Horn is one of the Clever Concept series (CC) designed by Bernd Timmermanns. The CC 72 is a 2 way horn system at an affordable price.

To achieve this favourable price Mivic drivers were chosen:
- the Mivoc HGH 258 FN II tweeter
- the Mivoc WPT 138 midrange / bass driver

Although the ducts look quite complicated it's still relatively easy to build the cabinet since most boards are rectangular; so you can buy the pre-cut wood and use an angle grinder or circular saw to bevel the edges.

Review of the M-Horn in Hobby HiFi 2/2007

"The M-Horn really got cracking in our listening room. This speaker enjoys what it's doing. 'The O-Zone Percussion Group', to be found on the Manger Listening test CD, had a spectacular appearance. That's exactly the right speaker for this type of music. It was quite amazing to experience the tight the powerful drum beats that were thrown into the listening room. Or 'The Cost Of Freedom' by Marla Glen: the rich bass of this recording filled the 30 square metre room with ease, and the vocals were remarkably detached from the loudspeakers."
