To be honest I have never heard a Western Electric system. Given the reputation I really would like to hear a complete system of Western Electric from Horns and drivers to vintage 300b theater amps. If anyone has such a system in the Southern US please contact me.
These snapshots were in a folder of pics I took at the Klipsch Factory Museum. These drivers and horns were tested by PWK himself. The old fashioned way not like today with computers and printers. This was a tedious time intensive process testing drivers. I wish I had a better camera back then but you can read most of the notations.
Here are some other pics of Western Electric horns and drivers at the museum. If I make it back I'll try to take better pics.
