Australian made speakers.
In 1960, an RCA engineer named Victor Kay (Snr) moved to Sydney from Brazil and went to work for AWA.
Import duties on imported speakers at that time was around 45%, so Victor made his own 12-inch and 15-inch speakers in 1963 under the name of ‘Lafayette’.
Victor formed the ETONE company in the late sixties to manufacture speakers. They still do to this very day. [Source: Colin Baldwin]
