Ca: early 1924, one of the earliest paper cone loudspeakers. By far its the best sounding of all early radio speakers. When connected to equipment that will produce high quality sound, the Western-Electric 540AW will even produce nice bass notes, a rare thing thing in early radio speakers. Of course Western-Electric is well known for the very best in early audio equipment.
This was found with the paper cone badly damaged. I replaced the cone with one of Buford Chidester's beautiful reproductions.
The original finish suffers some scuffing and wear. The decal is quite faded. Other than the cone, its all original. The cone is all that's not original. I properly tuned the driver and the speaker delivers good clean high quality sound.
for the speaker plus $95.00 for *packaging and shipping.
* packing large paper cone speakers requires an oversized container, special packaging and a great deal more time than usual. The extra effort is needed to help prevent damage and endure the rough handling it will encounter during transit.
