Edgar Lavington History

Paul Taylor lodged a number of interesting patents. All were in the field of audio reproduction, often for Public Address use. In particular he was passionate about carefully delay-phased line-source loudspeaker arrays and we have his extensive original design notes. This led him to development of loudspeakers which were used in St Pauls in the 1950s and much later, the improved models which were used in Westminster Abbey in the 1970s.

I am aware of the following patents:
