Hi,
This vintage speaker (see http://202.7.77.63:8080/Photos/SAM_0115.JPG) has been hanging around my shed for 40 years and before that around my grandfathers shed.
Can anyone shed some light on it, or would anyone be interested in it?
Cheers
Bob

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

That's much better than a dead link.

Airzone featured... Suspect the missing valve is the Pentagrid. Probably 6AN7 Triode Heptode (9 pin) 6BE6 has seven pins.

I have no info on that style of speaker in my books pre 1929 look for an ID plate, which would have probably been on the coil cover, that someone found useful for feeding the chooks.

I have only ever seen an AWA with tow bar iron like that. It's pretty obvious that its electrodynamic. The "Lyric" speakers had long electromagnets, but not that long, and without a "Draught horse shoe" Possibly late 20's early thirties as a wild guess.

No ID plate. Just what looks like a serial number stamped in the bottom of the horse shoe.

Rather what I expected, most of the info was probably on the cover, where ever it is?

I will keep an eye out, in case I spot one.
