Reminds me of The Joint at the Hard Rock in Vegas.

Interesting cabinets but without proper horns to make them a line array, they certainly won't project very far. Baffle mounted mids and dome tweeters won't reach beyond say 25 or 30 feet until the laws of physics take over. Beyond 40 or 50 feet, it'll be pretty muddy with a lack of highs.

They wouldn't be appropriate in anything more than a large room with like 200 people.

The subs look interesting but I doubt their efficiency is very high.

So are you saying this system would be better for wide rooms and horns focus the sound more into a narrower beam? Or are you just saying horns increase sensitivity?

Horn loaded compression drivers have much more output than one inch flat mounted dome tweeters. And many of the better compression drivers on the market will handle 100 watts.

A horn will focus or aim the energy across the distance of a room.
