Ferguson Hill, top of the range horn loudspeaker system consisting of large horns with stands, 2 subwoofers and matching subwoofer power amp.

Great Horn design that brings the best out of the Lowther speakers.  Due to the speakers being made of transparent acrylic they are less imposing than most horns.  Looks absolutely stunning but gives up very little in sound quality in this open baffle horn design.

Originally imported from the UK – I don’t know of any others in Australia.  They were bought for RRP $28,000 AUD.

Audition is possible.

The Ferguson Hill FH001 loudspeakers are full range units from 150Hz - 20KHz, with no crossover, however, a sub bass unit is required below 150Hz. They reproduce music with a high level of clarity, detail and dynamics, are highly efficient, and will go loud with just a few watts (5 watts).

They work fine with both tube and solid state amplifiers but their efficiency allows their use with relatively low powered amplifiers further increasing the level of clarity obtainable, from such relatively 'simple' amplifier circuits.

The stands are a welded stainless steel construction, satin polished, with internal damping, integral spikes and the possibility of hiding the speaker cables within the stand.  The horns are made from toughened cast acrylic, precision moulded, 8mm thick. The support ring and phase plug are precision machined from aluminium alloy, and have a protective anodised finish.

The main drive unit is a modified Lowther DX3 full range driver. 

The sub woofers, FH002 (covering from 150 Hz down) have their own matched amplifier with level control.

The subs are an acrylic sphere 24 inches in diameter with a 12-inch cone driver. The enclosure has six small holes behind the driver, which provide a distributed port loading element to improve power handling without the resonant frequency of a normal port. 

The Ferguson Hill bass system is designed to visually and acoustically match the FH001 Loudspeakers, giving a seamless integration between the sub woofers and the horn speakers. The Bass Amplifier (FH003) is mirror-polished stainless steel, fully damped and its frequency response is set to complement the FH001 Loudspeaker.  This 2-channel, Class B, solid-state amp provides 100 watts per channel into 4Ω. Normally, the FH003 can be fed from a full-range preamp or power amp, and its active crossover rolls off above 150Hz at 12dB/octave.

The first set of pictures are photos of the actual speakers for sale.  The last three are the companies marketing photos which I included because, being transparent  they are hard to photograph. 

 

The first two photos specifically are simply my set up in two different houses as I have recently moved.

 

Thanks

      Item: Azurahorn Ah-160 Midbass horns
      Location: Melbourne 
      Price: $550 negotiable
      Item Condition:  Good for age.  
      Reason for selling: Taking up huge amounts of space.  Present audio room is way to small for these
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Up for sale is my Azura Ah-160 mid bass horns.  These mid bass horns have given me the best lower midrange through mid bass I have heard.  The fibreglass horns resonated quite a bit when i first got them so over a couple of years i put layer after layer of bitumen on them which improved the sound hugely (I got that idea from Goto with they're midrange and mid bass horns).  It took forever for the bitumen to dry hence the huge amount of application time.
       
      They retail for $1200 new and then you have to pay the shipping, put on mounting plates, a rear chamber and ideally damp the mid bass and then paint them.  This has all been done ready to bolt the drivers in.  They are cut to a 4 inch throat to suit a 8 inch driver (same compression ratio and driver type as Avantgarde use in the Trio.  I have built a system that allows you to change the compression chamber size at the back of the horn.
       
      If you wished to use them with a different sized driver (like a Western Electric style 555 compression driver or larger) you could get Azurahorn to sell you a extension piece.
       
      Some people on the net have used these horns with the Avantgarde Duo for huge improvements to the sound (and near Avantgarde Trio sound).
       
      They take up a huge amount of space (they are almost one metre in diameter so they just fit through a doorway).
       
      They were originally gold in colour (using various metal powders and wax) but are presently in a more discreet Charcoal chalky type finish.  The rim needs a little touch up due to being in the garage a couple of years (I have more of the spray paint so can do this if required).
       
      Useable response (depending on driver and position) is 60 hz (shoved hard into room corners) through to about 100 - 140 hz or so in free space.  I was crossing these over at 700-900 hz but many recommend using them to about 1100 hz.
       
      I have some 8 inch Coral drivers I can provide cheap with these if needed.  I was using the Corals with these before switching to the Fane as used by Romy the Cat in his Upgraded Avantgarde Trio Midbass horns.  The Corals sound excellent in this mid bass horn.  Almost as good as the Fane but less efficient.  
       
      The Fane drivers have been sold and are not available.
       
      Local pickup strongly preferred due to the obvious size and weight issues.  Otherwise you would have to arrange your own shipping.
       
      Priced them cheap for a quick sale.
