This general type of horn was commonly used in 1920s radios, enclosed out of sight in a cabinet. I have seen all sorts of folding schemes. That Utah driver is an early style reed armature compression driver. I have listened to a couple of these combinations, and they sounded tinny and resonant; terrible by modern standards. These horns served a need, though, for people who didn't want to listen to their radio through a big morning glory horn.

Hey, thanks for posting that link and thanks for the extra info Steve.

I am posting a couple of the images from the auction as eBay will evaporate them then no one will know what we were looking at.

And BOZE claimes to have invented the lybrenth designs? Stromberg Carlson did this in 1936 among others.
