ElectroVoice Popular Electronics Ad October 1955

I recently acquired a pair of ElectroVoice Aristocrat speakers. They are very interesting and were sold under a Klipsch license. PWK stopped doing this at some point because of the lack of quality control. This has led me to take an interest in this time period where kit sellers were selling Klipsch kits. The biggest sellers were ElectroVoice and Cabinart. Here are a couple ads I found recently.

EV took advantage of Klipsch plans more than anyone.


Cabinart sold several Rebel kits.


Compare this to the size of the Klipsch ad for a Shorthorn.


It is interesting that EV mentions Klipsch several times yet Cabinart only mentions Rebel but nothing of the origins.
