    United speaker was owned by Bill Hecht. Fisher's Speaker Division was separate from United speaker and was a wholly owned subsidiary of FISHER RADIO. These were made by FISHER, NOT United Speaker.

    I only had the opportunity to listen for about 3 mins, but during that time they sounded wonderful. Hard to believe the sound that was able to be produced back then.

    Larry you know more about Fisher Radio Co, than most anyone here or anywhere else for that matter. :D
    So you would know. But if United didn't build speakers for Fisher what was their connection?
    IIRC their factories/assembly plants were, if not located in the same building, then they were at least adjacent to each other. Is that incorrect?
