    A CORONA Plasma Speaker on top of my JERICHO HORN

    Otto Braun sold his speakers from beginn on as OEM Versions for speaker designers, so that there were many type of different systems sold with his plasma speaker.

    Inside CORONA

    There was nothing new inside. It was the same principle as the Ionopphone and the other plasma speakers at this time. A self oscillating circuit with a EL519 (PL519 or 6DQ6) tube. Modulation with a transformer on gate 2 of the tube.
    The good efficency comes from the Horn. It has a smooth contur and was well calculated.
    The little air coil on top of the big resonator coil is against uncontrollated RF.

    This is a good picture to see how this tweeter is build.
