Leak Sandwich loudspeaker

Discussion in 'Audio Equipment' started by Michael Harrison, Nov 21, 2008.

  1. Does anyone have experience of the Leak Sandwich loudspeaker from the
    1950s/1960s? How does its performance compare with modern speakers?
    I would be interested to learn from those who know.

    It was several orders of magnitude better than anything made today but
    the British gov't drove it underground and snuffed the project for
    security reasons.

    It was way ahead of its time but that time has past. I loved the
    structural integrity.

    Yes, I remember hearing something like that also. I recall also hearing that
    the last known pair were nailed up in a large wooden crate and stored in
    some massive undisclosed warehouse somewhere in Briton.
