"David,      You stated, "The prewar and post war remote control keyboards look the same, but are wired differently so are not interchangeable, but can be re-wired."  I have a remote, (not placed into service yet),…"

"Lance: Check the back side of the outer rim of the speaker.  There may be a series of numbers printed there. Jensen and other makers identified them with these numbers.  The first two are the makers code, I think Jensen is #52. The next…"

"Norman - thanks. Good to know. For the AW-15, I have seen only the casting with oval openings for the several I have had and the 4 in my possession now. Presents an issue if we improve the AW-15 speaker info page in the 2nd edition of the Scott…"

"Thank you gentleman for the prompt replies. I will look for the 4 digit part numbers stamped on the pedestal. If I find these numbers, is there anyone who would be interested in these numbers in order to keep up with what speakers go with what radio?"

"Dave, there were three types of speakers employed in the AW-15.  One was physically identical to the AW-12 Deluxe speaker, another was a cast speaker with oval openings in the basket, and the third was s stamped frame version.  Visual…"

"I differentiate the AW-12 and AW-15 speakers by the basket casting. You have the AW-12 speaker. Two field coils. One is in the B+ circuit. The other is in the negative Bias circuit for the output tubes. The field coils are wound side by side on a…"

"Good morning David,              Thank you for the great information. I believe my speaker baffle is two to three boards glued together. I'm away from home at this time but will return this…"

"For most Scott cabinets, the Tauscher sound board if used was hidden behind the speaker cloth. But the Regent cabinet of 1940-41 did display the Tauscher sound board. And some custom installations might display the sound board instead of speaker…"

David C. Poland replied to Lance Hughes's discussion SCOTT NAPIER ALLWAVE 12
"Agree - the Tauscher sound board is best a display curiosity and not used over the speaker. Look closely at your speaker baffle - it is two or three boards (Spruce?) glued up. Not plywood. Those 4 large round Forstner bit holes near the corners are…"

"Beautiful radio David!!!! Thanks Norm for the information on the sound board. I wonder when or why it was attached to the baffle. Who knows right?? I will take your advice and hang it on the wall. Thanks guys."

"The Scott-Tausher sound board was not even invented during the entire run of Napier Consolette cabinets.  Furthermore, although it did defeat the beam effect of a curvalinear cone, it also defeated sound quality.  Remove it and hang it on…"

"Thank you David. Great information sir. Was your amplifier somehow bolted to the cabinet?"

David C. Poland replied to Lance Hughes's discussion SCOTT NAPIER ALLWAVE 12
"The Tauscher board should be installed BETWEEN the speaker and the baffle board, not the opposite side of the baffle board. Scott supplied longer 1 3/4 inch round head wood screws.  * Why refinish the whole cabinet? Looks pretty good overall.…"

"Good evening David,               I'm sorry. I'm attempting to wrap my head around this speaker baffle. You stated your baffle is about 1 inch made up of wide boards glued up.…"
