  1. Hí Iain,

    I have a picture of a model of baffle elaborated or
    produced for the sound system on the north coast of
    Colombia, between the finish of 80s and 90s. this model was known with the name of "Fraccionados"

    some photos here:

    in this photograph shows the back of the turntable
    the machine of sound or amplifier of vacuum tubes

    Some of these models were used in the 80s
    old sound systems of the northern coast of Colombia
    called "Picós"
