These are the legendary full-range Coral (Japan) Beta 8 drivers that don't use crossovers. Installed in custom raw Medite folded horn cabinets, they offer very satisfying full-range sound including surprisingly deep bass response.
The speakers work perfectly and sound fantastic.
There is some crumpling of the whizzer cone on one driver (see closeup pics below; it's the speaker on the left in the pics of both speakers), but it doesn't affect the sound or performance of the speaker. It is however noticeable as cosmetic damage, and I don't want to make it sound like the speakers are pristine if they're not. The front frames of both drivers are also painted white (the original finish was red).
The cabinets are fully glued together (no screws used) 1.5" Medite (like a very dense, heavy masonite) back-loaded horn enclosures. They were built from well-known and widely-respected plans and were very nicely done - they look professionally built. They're in excellent shape and are unfinished (not painted or stained), so the new owner can leave them as-is or customize them to suit their taste.
There is no crossover for the speakers, so there's just a speaker wire coming out the rear of each box which is connected to the driver on one end and attaches to the amp at the other. This brings the speakers into the realm of a 'direct connection from the voice coil to the amp's input', with only the speaker wire coming between the two.
Asking $600. Auditions welcome. Please be aware, these speakers are big and heavy (almost 100 lbs each), so transporting them will take some planning and effort. For that reason I strongly prefer a local sale.
Sorry, I will not ship the cabinets. However I will consider selling and shipping the drivers alone on a case-by-case basis.
AMERICAN BUYERS: Please note my conditions for sales to the U.S.:
- My prices are the same in U.S. dollars, so for example $100 Canadian = $100 U.S.
- I'm happy to accept POSTAL MONEY ORDERS (only the International type please), PERSONAL CHEQUES (allow 2-4 weeks to clear), or CASH (in person or by registered/trackable mail); unfortunately I will only accept PAYPAL with a minimum 10% surcharge on the total price (including shipping/insurance), due to their unfair fees and exchange rates.
- I use Canada Post (USPS) almost exclusively. UPS and FedEx tend to cost more (in some cases more than double the domestic rate), however they will ship larger and heavier packages than Canada Post. If you prefer to use UPS or FedEx, please let me know ASAP so I can get you a quote.
- If you know somebody who lives in or around Vancouver, I'm happy to have them come over and audition any gear I'm selling.
Last but not least, THANK YOU for your interest, and WELCOME to the Audio Mart family!
