The word "legendary" is thrown around a lot in Audio circles, often for equipment that doesn't qualify for that high praise.
However, the Ohm "F" speakers with the omni-polar Walsh drivers DO qualify! These uniquely engineered speakers were way ahead of their time when they were produced in the early to mid 1970s and into the 80's.
The Walsh driver is an inverted cone made of titanium (high frequencies) aluminum (mids) and paper/silicone (bass) with a 12" surround at the bottom, firing down into a large cabinet. The voice coil is at the top of the cone, and the whole assembly is supported by a metal frame bolted to the speaker cabinet. Check out the pictures.
The Walsh drivers have no crossover, and this configuration is capable of producing surprisingly full range sound, including great bass response. Rated at about 85 dB and 4 ohms, they are not an efficient speaker, so a good solid state amp is required.
I have sold three pairs of these speakers over the last few years, and this pair is in the best condition I have seen yet. The cones are in excellent condition, with no dents or creases. The cabinets are in very good condition as are the grilles/covers. The inner foam on these Ohm F cones is in very good condition, as can be seen in the photos.
The cones have been stored in an inverted position, so that the cone was not weighing-down/pulling on the voice coil and 'spider'.
Note the expensive HiFi Tuning fuses at the binding posts.
The Ohm Fs sell for $1200.00 to $1800.00 US dollars now, (use link provided above to see an eBay ad and a lot of info about the speakers as you scroll down) and most of them don't look as good as this pair.
You can have this pair for only $1300.00 Cdn
These speakers are heavy, and although the drivers are easily removable from the cabinet they would be a "pain" to ship, so a local sale is preferred.
