Fairly rare set of vintage Technics speakers - and in very nice condition.
Some photos show a second set of Technics - SB-6060 three ways.
The 6000a for sale this ad are the slightly wider ones - 2 ways.
The 6060s are being parted out on Ebay...
Anyhow....the 6000s - I rate 8 out of 10, as compared to a few other unrestored sets. Grills have a bit of wear - otherwise would rate 8.5. See the top corner in the photo. One cabinet corner slightly dinged - photo. Minor marks and scratches here and there.
Front grills are pretty good, with badges, but show a bit of wear. Top hats are v good (frames not broken like on many).
I am pleasantly surprised by how good these sound - as do the 6060s actually. Have that classic 2 way thing of slightly subdued mids and highs as compared to a 3 way, but very decent sound overall. I say are contenders in the $400-600 range of vintage speakers. Put them A-B up against my Energy 22 Reference Connoiseurs with new crossovers and a value of $950 - and - well - umm - well - OK they sound nearly as good. Bass on the 22s a little richer, but not by much. Mids and highs very comparable.
Great looks and nicely made - I especially like the real metal trim piece and fittings that runs vertically on the fronts.
Has 12 in woofer with some kind of rubber/butyl surround material that is not the normal foam - so are still good.
Tweeter - very good tweeter in my opinion. And this version - EAS-6KH70SF- is used in the higher end 7000, 7070 and maybe 8000 as well. The 6060 has tweeter that looks same but different model number on it - 6KH01S.
On top has nicely made panel with a tone control for tweeter and speaker connectors - with the factory speaker wire nuts - which are quite unique and expensive if you need to buy originals. Note that I may switch the chrome metal ones shown here for a set of while plastic ones - depends on what my incoming 7000a set comes with. Metal ones are worth $30 a pair if you have to buy them.. Tone control working without scratchiness.
Specs: 6 ohm 93 db efficient 100 watts power handling 300 mm woofer (12 in)
846 mm tall x 425 wide x 340 deep
28 kg each
Only for sale as I am dragging home a set of SB-7000 soon - which are 3 ways and 14 in woofer otherwise very similar.
Also - more Technics - I have a nice little set of SB-L100 - smaller 2 way with nice horn for tweeter. See last photo. $175 cheap for the little puppies. Not so little actually - about 2 ft tall. And at least 10 in woofer, if not 12.
In central Alberta. Shipping not likely a good move - too expensive. As in several hundred clams.
Can deliver for free to Calgary or Red Deer, on my schedule.
