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.

Dance Craze 1981

If your into two tone than this is for you. Great stuff I wish I could have seen it in the 80's as it would have rocked my world. I was a huge ska junkie.

1930 Loudspeakers and Pick-ups

Saw these in Wireless World and couldn't stop looking at the big square horn. It reminds of that big sqaure Voigt horn but this oneis exponential. Tonearm looks like a record shredder. Good stuff.
