What do we have here?

I was reading about how to build a capacitor checker from the December 1959 issue of Popular Electronics and stumbled across something that looked very familiar.

Dec-1959-Popular-Electronics

I know that shape.

Bose-901s

Nearly identical to a Bose® 901 Series I/II cabinet, and even specifically references expanding the sound field with a reflected wave. The 901 series uses what Bose calls “Direct/Reflecting” technology.

Anyone know about these “Cosmos Industries” speakers? Does anyone know any of their names, who might have gone on to work for the early Bose® corporation?

    Hi,
    Don’t know anything about the speakers or who built them, but did find one thread on Audiokarma that briefly discussed them:
