Male Cheerleaders serve a variety of purposes. The first and foremost is their ability to stunt. Male cheerleaders can lift female cheerleaders into the air over their head so that the female cheerleaders can better engage the crowd. It is much easier for male cheerleaders to base by themselves, and therefore requires less people per squad. Male Cheerleaders are often skilled tumblers too. (Tumbling has been incorporated into cheerleading because it is flashy and can help draw the crowds attention). Again, genetics give males an advantage in this particular activity. Males tend to be more top heavy and so tumbling is easier for them than females. Male Cheerleaders also help add lower octaves to cheers too, this can make them more audible.
It sounds like your talking about megaphones. They can also be called cones. Some girls yell out of them too.
