1957 Presenting THE FRAZIER SERIES Brochure By IEC

 This brochure was a real eye opener for me. I didn't know that Frazier's were once manufactured by International Electronics Corporation. Nor have I ever seen The Frazier Californian... Oh mama...... That is superb. Shipping weight 400lbs........ Mmmmmmmm


 


 OMG This is the speaker I want to find. The Californian utility... It is a good size it is two way and big ole folded bass horn.... A few of my favorite things.
 
Thank you for email me this one.... Wow...

EDIT: Additional information from Todd Crane.
FYI International Electronics was "FRAZIER" It was Frazier-May way back, but it was still Jack's Co., and the speakers were still hand made by some of the guy's father's that were still at Frazier when Jack died. (sons and grandson's) Jack loved the 30 some odd people that worked for him. Two 15 min breaks a day with NO time clock, other than to punch in and out each day. A plot out back where the guys could grow their gardens...etc, and Jack talked to EACH employee EVERY day!

  1. Iian, notice how much the Californian looks like a Klipsch Jubilee?

    I'm not sure about who/what IEC was. It was after Ed May left Frazier-May for JBL. Seems somebody told me once that IEC was just a marketing firm that Frazier-May and Frazier used before bringing sales in-house (1960?).

    Yeah, I'd like to see/hear a Texan or a Californian, too.

  2. oh yes of course. I bet the Cali is one rare speaker... Wonder how many were made.

    I'd love to see plans for the Californian. Do we know know any Frazier employees?

    If you read the small print it says Manufactured Exclusively For Frazier By IEC.

  3. Yeah, I've read the small print, but I've never gotten a clear answer. At one point in the Frazier-Mat era, a casket maker was sub-contracted for cabinets (as did Burhoe with EPI later).

    The Frazier experts (including Todd Crane, the former national sales manager) gather on the Klipsch 2-Channel forum under the F.U.G. thread (Frazier User Group).

  4. Handout plans should coordinate the topic of the organization or a venture; albeit all outline suit all associations, regardless of whether non-benefit associations or government offices. Brochure Design
