In Search Of Quality - Construction Of A 25ft Horn WE555 - Wireless World 1929

This is one of the coolest articles I've posted in a while. A 1929 article appearing in Wireless World documenting the building of a large 25ft no compromise Wente and Thuras style horn. The driver is of course the Western Electric 555W. My favorite feature is the use the ceiling as the horn mouth. 


  1. Wow! That makes a concrete horn from your yard into your living room seem tame. Especially in a commercially zoned neighborhood.

  2. This is not surprising, since in virtually any industry the cheapest products usually produce the smallest profit margin. Powertoolbuzz
