    AUDIO mag - 1954

    was cleaning out my dads old stuff, when I found all 12 issues of AUDIO from 1954. What a trip !!
    really nice condition and very informative - DIY on speaker refoams , DIY amps ...etc.
    But the ads !! Those are way kewl ...

    here are the JBL and Altec ads

    and then I saw this one and immediately thot of HJ and her light colored gear

    and then there is Edward Vilchur's article on his upcoming experimental acoustic suspension speaker !!

    Neat. Life was so much simpler then, and expectations were relatively low, so everything could be new, exciting, and neat-o!

    Maybe the original plan for Zilchlab's sub ??

    15 in LF mounted into the top of a 55 gal drum , planted in the ground with a huge cement horn into a 4 x 6 ft aperature in the dining room.

    notice rocks in the drum for dampening ....

    consoles were the big thing in 1954. most were 300-500 dollars so this was very expensive

    Seawolf, thanks for sharing all these old informations:

    TALKING RUBBER !!!!
    When I was young, very young but I can remember, my father brought home a strange office machine. He encouraged me to sing. Afterwards I could hear my own voice for the first time! I never remembered this kind of machine exactly, I only knew it had no tape.

    It must have been something like this Talking Rubber, thank you!
