PWK 3 X 5 MultiCell Horn 1944

I really like multicells especially the big ones. This one was designed while PWK was looking for a solution for his HF. This horn did not make it to production. 
I was recently at a friends listening to some large 10 cell Vitavox multicell horns that literally reached from corner to corner on top of a pair of khorns. The coverage was superb. I can't wait to hear this combo again. Don't discount the multicells horns to fast because they are old technology give them a chance.
Jim Hunter Klipsch engineer and historian posted this document in his post about the first 12 Klipschorns.

JBL Multicell Horns

Time Electronics... Now that is what I call multicells....Dammm. These were fitted with JBL 2480 drivers. Did they all fit in the van?

Early Lansing Factory

This is a great pic of the early Lansing factory and multicell horn construction. That 10 cell multicell horn looks big.  I've always wanted to see a modern take on the multicell perhaps with tractrix or le cleach profiles for each cell. However construction looks difficult.

Western Electric Prototype ?

I saw this posted on a forum a while back. They were calling them phantom 23a horns. The material covering them look similar to the material on a Western Electric straight horn I saw. Does this look familiar to anyone?
