    Lansing Heritage? Westrex T5208 baffle and horn assembly.

    Think these are pretty rare. Doing some research on unique vintage theater sound systems and came across blueprints for a Westrex T5208 baffle and horn assembly. Looks like 4/9/1953 is the date on the print. Two 15's (18's ???) one directly above the other - into some type of exponential flared horn (horizontally). The upper and lower surfaces - unlike say an Altec 210 VOTT cabinet - are NOT parallel. They look to be at angles of .....oh, about 20 degrees from horizontal (in a side view).

    Anyone ever heard one of these systems or seen one? With the left, right, upper and lower baffles, it seems to be a fairly large speaker.


    Thanks..........

    How rare?

    See the post about a JBL / Ampex 5050 cabinet for a picture similar to the Westrex 5208 I'm referring to. The only difference is that there are only two
    15's and they are mounted 1 above the other. Otherwise, the speaker system is pretty much the same.
