It seems that everyone that gets a chance to audition or demo the Synergy Horn line from Danley Sound Labs is thrilled with the "definition, clarity and effortless sound" that design yields. Some have even compared the SH50/60 favorably to electrostats. Many have gone to a full Danely 5.1 setup as a direct result.
Tom Danley has worked with other members of the DIY community on several other projects to include the predecessor to the Synergy Horn (Unity horns) line and most recently the hugely popular DTS-10 kit.
Each project started with a common denominator, demand and requests from DIYers like you and me. If there is a market for a product and it is fiscally feasible, it has a good chance of coming to fruition.
I fully realize that not everyone likes or 'believes' in horns and each design has its inherent strengths and weaknesses. However, I think we can all agree that as a community we all benefit to some degree from the differing designs and implementations discussed in this forum, if not only from the resulting debates.
More choices and competition is always a good thing.
The one limiting factor for many of us is the price of the Danley products. These are commercial grade offerings and the price is commensurate with the performance. Many of us would not have been able to afford the purchase of a DTS-10 at the fully assembled price, but the kit form really put things into reach.
So, my suggestion is to contact the powers to be at Danley and politely request that a Synergy horn kit be designed and made available for the DIYers out there. The only thing that I can guarantee is that if you don't make the request, there will be no kit.
I am not sure who to contact about this, but firstname.lastname@example.org
, the customer service rep might be a good start.

This thread will either die miserably or be the impetus behind another great product.If you would like to see a Synergy Horn in kit form post here too to keep this thread on the radar so to speak.
