model R2-B horn speaker ca: 1922
RadiolaGuy collection, not for sale at this time

The Magnavox company is responsible for the sounds we hear today from the speakers used in your auto radio, TV set and every other audio device we listen to today. Magnavox invented and patented the Voice Coil that is used in all conventional audio speakers. They did this around 1917! Their speakers made in the early days of radio actually had a voice coil driven diaphragm mounted at the base of a horn. All other all other speakers were not much more than an earphone mounted at the base of a horn. The voice coil gave Magnavox Speakers more power and superior sound quality.

The horn speaker pictured here is one of their best and next to their largest. It measures 18" in diameter at the bell.
