Dec 2 update. .Just had woofers pro refoamed. Had a good listen - reduced price a little.
Exceptional condition vintage speaks
Early 80's? Guessing that because have been travelling toghether with A-70 amp and F-90 tuner which date from then.
This price is for one pair - I have 2 sets. Second set needs woofers foamed - $200
I also have the A-70 amp that is a great match and was purchased with these speakers. 120 watts. See my other ad. With F-90 tuner.
Assymetric - that is, there's a Left and a Right - cabinets and even the factory boxes are marked R and L.
Not a lot of info out there, but supposed to sound pretty good - some say comparable to HPM-100? Not sure are that good, but hopefully are contenders in the $400-500 zone.
My speaker tech says these have very well made voice coils. .he's been inside coils on another speaker....not these.
Speaker cones are plastic....important that they be in good shape - these are. Also a good reason to have a pro go the foams. ...these cones make it tricky to do good job. Cost me $120 plus travel.
These really are in great shape. I give them a 9 out of 10 for cosmetics, as compared to a few other urnestored sets. And I grade hard. Cant remember last time anything got a 9. The one photo shows the bottoms - which are better than the tops of most vintage speaks. Tops also excellent - forgot to take photos.
Small defect - one dust cap now dented. Just happened when transporting from refoam. Cosmetic only.
Check out the build in photo showing the internals. Crossovers look decent, enclosed mid driver.
Sound? Been listening today after breaking in the foams for a few hours. Pretty good, not bad, cant complain. Contenders in the $300-400 range of vintage speakers. Quite smooth. Bass is robust without taking over. Not as good as my Ditton 551, and I think I prefer my Technics SB6000 - but better than a lot of Sansui speakers I've heard that command similar price. Don't have quite the clarity and detail of a better speaker, but well balanced and not offensive.
Quite efficient - would estimate around 93-94 dB. Was running alongside another speaker rated at 90 dB, and a considerable jump up in volume when switching to these.
