One Tweeter Is Bad. Wanted to list that up front so it didn't get lost in the description. Model number is B-209A for the tweeter which Audioclassics shows in stock for $50.
Local Pickup Only
Found this pair at a rummage sale for the local SPCA at least 10 years ago. This was a HUGE once a year event they had which covered multiple acres of buildings and found one on the first day then spent the rest of the second day looking for the mate before finally tracking it down nowhere near the first one hiding behind a bunch of busted furniture. Plugged them in once I had both at home and, even though I had no possible place I could use them, they immediately were mentally flagged by my pack rat brain as "too cool not to keep". So I've basically just been using them as attractive .... yet not particularly efficient .. pieces of furniture since.
The one tweeter that is bad was that way when I first got them. The cabinets were not in bad condition but looked to have had things sitting on them over the years that left rings on the tops and generally just looked washed out so I used a refinishing kit just to clean them up. If I were going to do it again I would have just done a light sanding and then applied a slightly less glossy sealant but they do present pretty nicely as-is though they do have their share of scuffs and dings.
Tested them today and gave them a quick clean. Confirmed that the one tweeter is completely dead. When you tap the surface of it sounds like something degraded inside of the driver. The others don't appear to have any issue and that includes the "mate" to the bad one. Played music through them for about an hour and, despite the bad tweeter, they sound really good. Played them at a loud enough volume to be uncomfortable when placing my ears close enough to each driver to check for any distortion and I could hear none. The surrounds on the woofers look to be in very good condition and the cones show no sign of rot or being dry/delicate.
Since these do appear to be a matched pair I only pulled the back off of one to get the driver model info. I did look inside both when I first got them and don't remember there being any differences or indication of having ever been opened before (smelled like fresh cut wood when I opened them).
Information is as follows:
Serial numbers are B20806 and B20805
Model B-302A Urban
Code 624 (don't know what that means but it's on the label)
Woofer Model B-199A 8 Ohms
Mid Model B-209A 8 Ohms
Tweeter Model B-200Y (taken from bad tweeter)
Crossover ... see picture
This is LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. These aren't the heaviest things in my theater room (not even close actually) but they are heavy and big enough I can't imagine it would be worth the expense of shipping them. If, by some chance, you have access to something that might make shipping possible let me know but I'm not going to spend a day of my time running around town looking for pallets and boxes for some convoluted freight forwarding deal. If all I have to do is get them outside and be here when someone comes to pick them up I might be amenable.
NO RETURNS. Since this is local pickup and I'll be letting the buyer check them over prior to taking possession I will OBVIOUSLY provide a full refund if anything is not as advertised.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions about this specific pair but if you want general information there is an active community of people still using Bozak speakers so let Google be your friend for those type questions. Check my feedback .... despite all my disclaimers I always try to be honest about what I'm selling so that everyone involved ends up happy with the deal.
Overall present pretty well but do have their share of scuffs (pretty easy to fix if refinishing) and dings (would require some more work). All pictures were taken today (7/29/2017).
Send them my way but PLEASE check through the attached pictures and the description first to make sure they aren't already answered here. I'm pretty easy to work with and have no problem getting on the phone if you like.
