1968 Tannoy Autograph Speakers

I have an irrational love of Tannoy loudspeakers. I've never heard them but I am amazed by their design and construction. Their product lines are very interesting. It is hard for me to appreciate a speaker that is just drivers in a box. This is wrong I know but that is how I feel. When I see a speaker with a complex cabinet design to me there is more engineering and complexity to the design which I appreciate. The Tannoy Autograph is one of these speakers. Would love to spend some time listening to a pair. That is enough of my rambling check out this speaker eye candy.

A Corner Labrinth Transducer

This is an interesting critter. It meets my first criteria in a speaker which is that it isn't small but it could be bigger still. I have severe distaste for small speakers. If you want it to sound real make it big. If you want it to sound like a speaker make it small. Ok sorry for the rant there. This looks like a missing link or like a bunch of speakers went to an orgy and this came out as a backloaded cornerhorn karson looking thingy.

Jensen Back Loading Folded Horn Cabinets July 1952

Great documentation for a Jensen back loading folded corner horn. You can use 12 or 15 inch drivers. This was shown earlier as a Brociner cabinets but it seems it was more than likely licensed from Jensen. The documentation calls for a Jensen P15 to be used which is what was used in the early Klipschorns.

Brociner Back Loaded Corner Horn

Brociner Electronics is a company I am having trouble doing research on. There is only a smattering of information here and there on the internet. I'm going to try to do more research on Victor Brociner for future posts. It seems he did some work for Fisher, Lafayette, Klipsch, Lowther and several other early Hi-Fi companies. For Klipsch Brociner Electronics built some early Klipschorns cabinets but this did not last long. Brociner employed the best designs he could find. This leads me to this very interesting back loaded corner horn that has been discussed at the Lansing Audio Heritage forums. Thank you forum members spkrman57 and Beowulf57 for posting pictures and plans.

Here are the plans for the Brociner model unknown.

Here are some pics of the Brociner back loaded corner horns.

If anyone has documentation or information regarding Brociner Electronics speakers please let me know.

Lowther Voigt TPA Corner Horn

The TPA is one of my favorite speakers yet I have never listened to one. This preference is entirely based on asthetics. It could sound like a bose wave radio for all I know. Ok I doubt it. I know little of its history but it seems to have been produced from 1951-1960's. There is some info available at the Lowther Voigt museum web site.

Here are some pics from of the TPA at the Klipch Audio History Museum in Hope, AR. This is one of the best examples I've seen.

If you have additional information on the Lowther TPA please post comment.

Jensen Plans

I must have been born decades too early because these Jensen plans are really cool. Jensen offered lots of plans for those willing to build their own speakers. When a wife is happily handing crossover parts and looking happy about big speakers now that is a time to live. When I find a place to host large pdf files I'll post one of the Jensen books I've found online. I've never heard them but back loaded corner horns rock.

Here is a shot of an Imperial.
