The driver barely moves and puts out a minimum of 104db at 1 watt. They are very alive, even at very low volumes.

To make/keep this related to guitars... Listening to Michael Hedges "Aerial Boundaries" is a sonic masterpiece. Also, for real dynamics, listen to Ricky Lee Jones "Under the Boardwalk" on the "Girl at the Volcano" Album. The clean dynamics on this cut, with a set of fully horn loaded speakers, will blow your mind. Not to mention it's a great version of this song.
Some day I will get a chance to listen to K-horns. Thanks for the recommendations for some tracks to check out!

In addition to have a roster of some amazing guitar players CandyRat records does a phenomenal job of recording them so every nuance of the playing is captured. Adjust the volume to acoustic guitar level, close your eyes, and it's like having the artist in the room. It's sublime and inspiring.
