Notes

The Crosley 146 "Senator" is an AC operated 9 tube BC band receiver.  Has RF gain stage, two stage IF amplifier, active AVC circuit with sensitivity control and push pull audio output stage. BC band tuning range is 550 to 1750kHz. Crosley advertised that the Police Band could be received due to this extended BC Band range.

Please note that some illustrations of this model show 3 knobs on the front panel, while others show 4 knobs.  Actual radio models have 4 knobs, which is supported by the Crosley parts list. The knobs are as follows: volume, tuning, selectivity and tone/power switch.

From the 1932-33 Crosley News Brochure:  The exquisite stump walnut overlaid front panel is arched with beautiful burl maple.  The curved pilasters are panelled with stump walnut veneer and capped with cross straight-grained walnut veneer.  The apron has an overlay of burl maple.  The six reeded legs are beautifully turned and are capped with medallions.  The top and sides are finished in walnut and are hand rubbed.

In many cases Crosley used the chassis number as the model number, and added a model name to some models to help distinguish versions that used common chassis. The 146 and 146-1 chassis are similar except that the 146 chassis drives a single speaker while the 146-1 chassis drives two speakers. Here are the models that used the 146 and 146-1 chassis versions:

Model Model Type Chassis Speakers
146  "Senator" Console 146 Qty(1)
146  "Mayor" Table Top 146 Qty(1)
146-1  "Congressman" Table Top 146-1 Qty(2)

Quote from Dave McClellan: "The Crosley 146 from about 1932 is a 9-tube superhet with a tuned RF amplifier and two IF amplifier stages. It receives only the broadcast band - the figures are 55 - 150 on the scale. The chassis is very complex and features a sophisticated AVC system with sensitivity control, push-pull class B output stage, a tuning meter, choke input filter power supply with mercury vapor rectifier, and both 2.5 and 6.3 volt filament tubes!" We can add that the broadcast band is extended (compared to chassis 124) and received the police band also.

There are 3 models associated with the 146 and 146-1 chassis that are not identified in the Crosley documentation, identified in this LINK.

There are 3 models associated with the 146 and 146-1 chassis that are not identified in the Crosley documentation.  The models are as follows:

Model Model Type Chassis Speakers Notes
146  "Announcer" Console 146 Qty(1) According to the Crosley documentation, the "Announcer" model name is associated only with chassis 124-1 and 126-1. It is not known if this model was originally built this way by Crosley or if the original "Announcer" chassis was exchanged with a 146 chassis at some point later in time.
146-1 "Legislator" Console 146-1 Qty(2) This model is pictured in the book by Mark Stein: Pre-War Consoles.  The Crosley documentation does not list a model called "Legislator".
146 "Tombstone" Table Top 146 Qty(1) The chassis in this model is labelled 146-1, however the chassis is actually a 146 chassis, since there is only 1 filter choke and a 4 wire speaker cable to support just 1 speaker.  The chassis is also factory ink stamped "SENATOR", which is a known console model supported by the Crosley documentation (But using a 146 chassis!!)  It is not known if this model was originally built this way by Crosley or if the chassis was placed into this cabinet at some later date.
