The big news for 2017 is the introduction of the Point Source Technology featuring UHS in an industry first Coincident Mounted Compression Horn designed to deliver inhumane amounts of SPL while distributing a full range of frequencies. The main advantages of these horn speakers are their ability to produce about five times more sound than a traditional cone speaker from a given amplifier output. Point Source Compression Horn Tower Speakers & UHS Technology The new THOR ultra-high sensitivity (UHS) speakers create a single point source with a unified magnetic structure allowing all musical energy across the frequency band to come from a single focal point within the transducer. This dramatically improves the directionality of the speaker system while the design of the compression horn improves SPL. The systems are available in an 8-inch tower and 6.5-inch compact tower speakers plus 6.5 door speakers. With minimal amplification, these Hifonics UHS technology drivers can produce 92dB from a 6.5 inch and 95dB from the 8-inch driver. By blending the benefits of a shortened horn design with our thermal formed woofer cones your music has never been this distinct and loud!

8 inch compression driver includes 11 mounting options
The THOR TPS-CP80 incorporates all the features of the compression drivers with the advantage of a heavy duty, steel reinforced mounting system. Internally, we have engineered steel plates for added strength from your roll cage or two bar to the speak support. For mounting the enclosure to your vehicle we have included 11 mounting sizes - nothing extra to buy.
In this cut-a-way view, you can see all of the elements that make up the THOR compression horn system including the steel reinforced mounting system.

For those more difficult installations, you may need to get the optional swivel mount. This mount allows your speaker enclosure to rotate up or down 180 degrees. With our Transverse Mounting design, each speaker can rotate in opposite directions.
Match up the compression horns with Thor amplifiers, soundbars, marine certified source units, and Bluetooth controllers to complete your system design.
