1950 McIntosh Ad

I've actually located a pair of these early McIntosh amps locally but the seller seems to like to torment me.

Lorenz Ad October 1958

I'm not sure screaming babies in stereo is a good audio ad. This might also explain why I've never heard of them.

Mid Century Modern Wall Horn

This was posted on Audio Asylum recently. I would love to own a mid century modern home but especially if it had a large horn built into the wall. Too dam cool.



You can see the HF horns would be at the top and the LF horn empties into the room on the bottom.

Daves Fastlane Audio Hobby Site


Daves site is the perfect place for those looking for tractrix horns for their DIY projects. Dave specializes in upgrades to heritage Klipsch but they can be used with many other DIY projects. I find Dave's site is different from most of the others as he provides lots of test data. There is allot of respect for the designs of Paul Klipsch but many want to try PWK's vintage designs with modern components. Klipsch pays respect to the Heritage line by leaving it mostly as it was at PWK's passing. The 2006 revamp was likely the best in Heritage history. However Dave's site is for those that want to hear what Heritage and DIY could be.


The Elliptrac 400 is very interesting. It can also be ordered in kit form. I may have to try this one if I can get it with 1.4 inch throat.






I like the different horns for Belle and La Scala.


I was skeptical about the biradial tweeters until I actually heard them. Amazing coverage.


I may have to be on the look out for some beater or parted vintage LF horns.

Univeristy 6201 Duplex

I'm still looking for some affordable duplex speakers for my refugee Shorthorns. Basically I want to keep them vintage and make them functional. These three cabinets aren't meant to be the last word in fidelity but rather a rescue project. Anyone have spare 6201's?

Jensen G610 Triplex

I was given a stash of Klipsch 1950's cabinets. This has led me to research duplex and triplex speakers. The recommended speakers to me were the Jensen G610 and Altec 604. These are a little more high dollar than I wanted to go but are certainly great choices. Check out the G610.
