Second Horn System Running

By | February 4th, 2018|Categories: ItisHifi - Vintage|Tags: , |

With help I got my second horn system up and running this morning. I’ve been collecting these parts for years lol. Folded bass horn has dual 12″ drivers, 233hz tractrix horn has JBL2482s. round tractrix tweeters are some B&C DE250s. The tweeters are a pretty hot so they need a bit of taming. Now to build some top hats and get some tubes…

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.
