Extra drivers added Sept 26/17

From 2005 until early 2017, Darrel and Diana Hawthorne operated a family business producing very popular and relatively inexpensive open baffle speakers. You'll find lots of information about the Hawthorne speakers on-line, including many discussions on Audio Forums and some reviews. One of the reviews can be accessed through the link provided above. You'll also find postings by people who have improved the design by installing higher quality parts in the cross-over....which is easy to do, as the cross-over is easily accessible at the back of the speaker.
There are also still parts available on the Internet, like Amazon.com, where yo can buy the 'Augie' 15 inch woofer if you want more bass performance.

The Silver Iris speakers employ two drivers made specifically for Hawthorne Audio, by the World-famous Eminence company in the US, well-known for their fabulous and very efficient drivers. There is a 15 inch woofer and a compression drive tweeter that screws into the back of the woofer, thus creating a coaxial pair, with time-alignment and very good sound-staging and imaging characteristics.
The drivers are mounted on a solid and heavy Baltic Birch (stained was applied for the colour they are now) and plywood baffle that is 37 inches high by 22 inches wide by 1.5 inches deep. They weigh 37 pounds each, so they're fairly easy to move around.

Hawthorne Audio sold speakers 'Factory Direct' from the US, so it was over $2000.00 US to buy and ship a pair into Canada.
You can have this pair for only $550.00 Cdn

ADDED: I now have two more of the Silver Iris drivers only(woofer and tweeter), no crossover $300.00 for the pair

There are no boxes, so a local sale is preferred...OR you can just buy the drivers and crossovers for $500.00 and ship much more cheaply.
