Speakers : Non German Speakers
Tesla 10 cm tweeter KE11
The company Tesla was founded in Prague, Cszecholovakia, in 1946. Similar to RFT, Tesla combined a whole load of smaller companies under obe roof.
F's comment: Apparently "Tesla " indicates the genius scientist, inventor Nicola Tesla, the hero of Slovakia. So Moscow got a sniff of Nationalism and complained the name. The Industryminister of Czechoslovakia faked a report, changing "Tesla" to "TESLA". According to his explaining, TESLA stands for "TEchnika SLAboproudá " or slowakisch TEchnika SLAboprúda". This seems typical Czechoslovakian way. After the summer of Tanks(07.1968), they pretended to obey Moscow, but continued the program of freedom and reform. Income per capita became next to Italy on the eve of collapse of wall. TESLA is the first and maybe only company which made Video-player and CD-player inside Iron Curtain. TESLA contributed the development of speakers in 50's. They made cones whose thickness change by gradation from inside to outside.
