Marconi radio model 168
Cec Aube

I would like to replace the present speaker (not original?) with an original. Who was the manufacturer and any other details. The model in now is a Magnavox 12 inch 910 Ohms. Is it the original. Where can I buy an orifinal? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Michael Watterson

Actually your questtion should be at the Model

Canadian Marconi 168

It would be good too if you uploaded photos to the model!

Just a reminder the photos should be 933 pixel wide and up to 1400 high (use this to get a larger 1400 high and up to 933 of the chassis wiring), no flash or reflections from lamp or sun.

  • Front view (3/4) Angled about 10% of top and side.
  • For Radio models: Straight view of scale without cutting of bits, no angling
  • Rear panel
  • Model writing /plates / labels
  • Inside with rear panel off
  • Top view of chassis angled
  • For Radio Models: Detail of drive cord arrangement
  • Bottom view of wiring before modification as well as after if desired.
  • For Record players, Radiograms, taperecorders etc there should be photos of the "deck" and parts.

See also From Help on restoration on Front page.

Good Photographs (Martin Renz, Germany).
Irfanview for Prepairing Photos (Konrad Birkner, Germany).
Irfanview for Schematics (F.-J. Haffner, Germany).
NEW: Formatting Pictures with Irfanview 4.33 (John Kusching, USA).
NEW: Uploading a Picture to RadioMuseum (John Kusching, USA).

It may be similar to a UK model. But hard to tell without photos.
