The smooth frequency response for Giving What is S2 has made ​​a strong magnet of alnico type tweeter horn by attaching to the dispersion has assembled a sieve. At the time, has made ​​a relatively glamorous enough to have attracted many music lovers.
Nowadays people come and enjoy a classic luxury speaker system, include the number at the top of that, and you will see recommendations. The model showed that the extremes of woodworking art, play music to the speaker system beyond the Iran-dimensional work of art is evaluated will suffice.
On the other hand, appeared in 1953, the company's auto-graph Tannoy accomplished Rival products have been evaluated.

Courtyard by systems other than the speaker unit to buy Vox design and manufacture of various units to continue to develop a more focused announced. Among them was created for the general customers 15 "AK-155 and the compression type and treble unit, S2, and include several types of mixed systems.

Garden of the speaker drivers and microphone VOX only other specialist in the creation and the United Kingdom as a manufacturer of audio is one of the oldest companies. The company in 1931 by Leonard Young was established in London's West molraendeu load. As the owner of an intellectual nature, he has a strong commitment to it was a typical English gentleman.
founded by the son of the time the building was used as the grunge'm a quiet old building which is housing there and it was like to look good. Leonard Young, founder of the company after his son was left to be president mulryeojugo.
He sejjeume 20 merchant ships that sailed the oceans of 5 radioman had worked as an engineer to operate the unit as an audio playback device that he had a strong interest in was justified. He plays acoustic instrument ever perfect when you need a device to mankind in the future expect to come upon soon decided to dive in this area:
in 1928, 25 years old Leonard Young was recognized talent as an engineer in the UK maker of acoustic devices Dual-VOX company began working as chief engineer. What matter where he established a fund for Joshi companies to realize the dreams worked hard:
he do anything to make money and lots of stuff to organize a dance band which violin, piano, saxophone, and played directly was even. He was thinking only or kkaena only company.

Best quality' awareness to all employees simeojwo

1931, which finally led to his dream, "Buy another Vox Limited (Vitavox LTD)" a sign that his company is built on West molraendeu load at first, just working without sajangsil Taiwan's first task was the installation began.

Leonard Young Bai other Vox was to establish a continuing chaos in the world, there was at cost-effective. Journal started in 1927 versus the U.S. economy and the recession led to panic in the world went to Europe, as did the number of exception:
Britain's lost a job in one day to roam the streets unemployed people were coming in.. Glad of It's a misfortune, Leonard Young is a company that needs practice balls were able to very easily obtain 0 the smooth progress of the operation was
raised at the time of the Great Depression, the film industry during the boom, such as helping to build people's minds were truly . In the film industry became sondaetdeon people have their fun, they became interested in the talkie system.
talkie cinema sound is not good because the guests molriji, Pay close for Torquay system will start to install the unit. Bai conceived from the beginning here to buy another Vox talkie film speakers for the system gradually starts to hand in the manufacture of a good response is obtained:
the first year of the founding companies of the total sales amount of 3000 pounds, but the deficit was 500 pounds. However, while satisfied with the amount of revenue lost in production was more. Leonard Young in any situation, even if the other Vox Garden the 'best quality' management philosophy that should be instilled to all employees. He then worked hard for three years resulting Bai other Vox and finally out to reduce the deficit gradually started to enter profitability will continue to evolve could.

Quality accredited by the British Navy

Are greeted by booming theater speakers for movie theaters began mass production made ​​at this point we look at the Garden other VOX, West Electric-type full-Dead ikseuponnensyeol horn 15A, 15B, 16A and is
assembled with the unit created speaker system was installed in the theater in Britain, has been exported to Germany in 1933 is once. 16A horn installed in the first movie theater in London, gave a bond to the Westminster Abbey after the order has been among other places.
This causes the other Vox Bai Hai's reputation and the quality of the product is widely used as well as inform. Emphasis on high technology and quality, so thoroughly that it needs time to perfect the product from the famous British naval official of the company's products, amounting to order.

British naval vessels to use the microphone and speaker for PA as well as the robustness, even under extreme circumstances to be able to exert maximum performance, so yihoe's products have passed in all experiments will have received a supply.
Garden Railway at the time of other Vox products, Airport, the main arena, music club, a discotheque, and was mainly used at the time showed a more advanced look. After the Second World War, Leonard Young in the field of hi-fi speaker system, turn our eyes, that can be used as general home speaker system began to show interest in the production.

This model is designed to be used in a relatively large area IS SOMETHING, 2-way 15 "jeoeumyong unit AK-156 and CN-157 which consists of horn tweeter is goeumyong S2. When the unit configuration information siwonseureopge no different than CN-191 and beyond should have a sense of sound reproduction buxom.
Bai other VOX company also released in the UK Tannoy Dual Concentric Coaxial 2-DU-121 speaker system is similar to the Iranian model Development has announced. This 12 "bass cone in the middle as well as a specially designed cone tweeter is installed is a model
