Back in the days of Black and White Movies, and remember, the Silent Movies?

Then came sound and because there were always not much space behind the movie screen, Western Electric had to make a speaker/horn system that will fit the narrow passage way behind the screens.

And voila, the Western Electric 16A was created. And history was made.
