Cinema National Movie Drive In Audio Speaker

$89.00

Cinema National Movie Drive In Audio Speakerl, Model Number 2234-2HD, Manufactured by Reed Speaker Company Golden Colorado. On the rear it lists a patent number D-199676. The patent is a design patent for a car speaker for outdoor theatres. It was filed Jan. 28, 1963 and granted Dec. 1, 1964. This gives an indication as to the vintage of the Cinema National Drive In Movie Speaker.

This speaker is a solidly built item constructed of aluminium and is in physically in good condition. The speaker is missing the cable as seen in the pictures, it was cut off at the entrance to the speaker body at some time in it’s life. The electronics are untested. Volume knob moves.

This speaker would be a great item for movie buffs and vintage car culture folks who are looking for a touch of nostalgia in their den or living room. Because the Cinema National Drive In Movie Speaker was meant to be used outdoors it could even be wired up to be an outdoor speaker for those inclined to tinkering with audio equipment. It has been done, I’ve seen one setup like that and it worked great!
