The most Natural, Realistic, Atmospheric, Detailed and Smooth sounding Vintage speakers I ever heard
(and I'm not new to speakers)

(Vintage speakers sounding commonly much better than any modern speaker, and they don't make speakers like they used to anymore)

(in United Kingdom, 1970-1980, not many people heard of this brand here)
(no exaggeration or hype, engineer and vintage enthusiast opinion)

To describe these speakers very briefly and why they sound better then any other vintage speakers I know of:
(even for 1k+)

* Midrange paper-cone is center piece here, look at how long it is and fully enclosed in solid metal
* then Tweeter is ideal soft-dome, made in Norway by Seas, detailed yet natural and smooth and does not damage or bother ears !
(tweeter's diaphragm suspended in ferro-fluid liquid)
* Woofer is deep light paper-cone ! with mid-size magnet, this means it is able to take part of Midrange lows onto itself, look at its area, it is like another huge midrange then, and therefore reproduces very atmospheric and natural sound, like you are near a live performance
* Every connection is re-soldered with silver solder, and no hype custom Litz cables of ideal size soldered with silver directly onto the network crossover, bypassing any connectors, - This upgrade alone is like lifting a heavy Carpet from your speakers
(this is major improvement, compared to resistor/capacitor/coil upgrades that are minor upgrades)

* big Volume and quality insulation inside (not fiberglass)

This so happened that I had the chance to find this speaker model and try hearing them myself, - that made be find out that other speakers offered sound horrible, in regards to these ones, and that most don't even know this brand or this model(made in UK),
and only know popular brands like JBL or others, which sound loud and low quality, and not natural or vintage...

I am only trying to relay in words to you how these speakers actually sound, without you ever hearing or trying this brand,
let alone this upgrade, restoration, or improvement of these speakers

No need for long description...

Technical stuff:

the Cable(which is included and attached), is already one of the highest quality sounding in the world, from engineer viewpoint,
so it does not matter how much you pay for another cable, this one should sound better or equal

Have been sonic tester for many years(of world music compositions, sources and amplifiers),
and these are the most moving and comfortable to listen speakers I have heard so far, (detailed, alive and natural sound reproduction)
without exaggerating

These speakers sound good because they are made properly with Paper Cones for mids and woofers, and Soft-Dome material for Tweeters,
and you can tell how much effort has gone into making them right away

(They sound much better than any other speakers I heard, saw and read about,
including JBLs, and any other speaker brands)

True to sound reproduction, very live, atmospheric and clear, no distortions or drowning of frequencies, feels like real instruments are playing live right in front of you

Very wonderful for Celtic, Classical, Live, Vocals and instrumental music
(near ideal for flutes, harps, xylophone, violins, drums, guitar, and piano)

These have been sonically restored
(Every solder on drivers' connections replaced with 4.7% silver solder,
Woofers refoamed,
Midrange foams reinforced

(New Original Foams for Mids available here: ebay.com/itm/1x-Foam-inverted-surround-for-the-Peerless-KO40-MRF-midrange-special-made-/152034974323

Tweeters checked and cleaned, tested through the whole sonic frequency range by ear with Wave Frequency generator)


(special true Litz thick wire has been attached directly to the crossover(internal network) with 4.7% Silver solder, and tweeter wires upgraded inside to real Litz wires,

*Includes a speaker cable of Litz configuration, that is made of hundreds tiny pure copper threads which are individually coated with enamel and woven in special configuration that preserves the signal purity as much as possible from amplifier to speakers,

*Each thread is very thin so that higher frequencies don't get cut off and as much of full spectrum gets delivered as possible to speakers, and the cable is thick to be able to produce bass properly, that is full, yet sharp and punchy and reactive, without drowning)

*This cable is carefully fed through original plugs, air-tight sealed, and then connected directly to crossover, bypassing every connector, inserts, any useless wiring in-between, this preserves as much of signal purity as possible

* Tweeters have also been wired using high-quality Litz cable that is thinner, so that they are able to reproduce high frequencies properly without loss via internal wiring)

*Woofers' mounting ring has been reinforced with big washers to minimize vibrations/distortions

+ These speakers sounded really good to begin with, and this upgrade has vastly improved the sound, it felt like a carpet has been lifted off, even though they already sounded superb

Cable Note:
ideal speaker cable for any speaker I found to be, is pure copper Litz wire configuration that is 100/35AWG full-range, 2-way or 3-way speakers(any speaker), and 200/38AWG for subwoofer only (this means 100 or 200 individual threads of specific thickness)
on ebay "litz 100/35", 30 feet
then use 4%+ silver solder, bypass any connectors between amp and speaker network, and solder directly onto board
from engineering viewpoint(and not from marketing hype), this is an ideal speaker cable that can be built with natural, atmospheric sound that is alive

Reduced to only 400 dollars firm(from 700)

(actual value of these speakers is... there is no price, after hearing and listening to these, I don't think any other vintage speakers offered within 1-2k range are close)
