Hi-Fi And The Electronic Crossover

Here is an interesting article from Popular Electronics March 1957. Can't say I'm a big electronic crossover fan but they are great tools. I'm not much of a system tweaker like many of my friends. I just want to listen to tunes.
Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been hiding in the Ozark Mountains for a week. It was superb.

Give Your Pick Up A Chance - Popular Electronics 1958

Here is another little gem from Popular Electronics. I feel like I have my duh hate on as I have been scanning in color which exaggerates the yellowing of the paper. From now on I'll do everything in greyscale. Oh well live and learn.

Here is another Popular Electronics article from April of 1958. I really like these articles because I learn some basic along the way. The information may be a little outdated but the basic principles are the same.

What's All This Talk About Hi-Fi? Popular Mechanics Sept 1954

I just picked up a lot of Popular Mechanics and Electronics. The earliest one I have from Popular Mechanics 1954. It is strange as there are no Hi-Fi ads but there is a great cover article. I'll be posting scans from these mags over the next couple months.

I love the built in designs. I guess they bought quality gear the first time and didn't really roll through a lot of equipment.

I love these family circus style charts. Popular Electronics and Mechanics used this style often.

Why can't I find a house with LC1 built in lol..... Sorry for the watermark but its easy too see where my scans end up and there is a blog out there that just copies everything I post.

Sorry guys I was checking out the girl on the cover and missed the rest of the article but here it is..
