Description

Sponsored post - log in to remove this ad.

Due to downsizing, I must sadly part with this pair of beloved speakers.
It has been driven with many different tube amplifiers, all with great result.

Its got Fountek JP3.0, one of the best ribbon tweeters at the time, has a low-mass (11mg) element of corrugated aluminum and a strong neodymium magnet with built-in transformer. Woofers are their later version with copper-plated aluminum phase plugs.

Cabinets are very heavy, with front baffle machined from 1.75" thick poplar, and incorporate a wave guide/loading horn for the ribbon tweeters.

Overall this in conjunction with some good tube amp will produce some very magical sound. Even 8-10w SET 300B/845 amplifiers would work great; can't say the same with the 20x time more expensive speakers like magico or wilson.

Txt me at 323.741.1857 for quick response.

Two-way reflex-loaded floor-standing loudspeaker.
Drive-units: 2.6" long Fountek JP3.0 ribbon tweeter, 8" proprietary treated paper-cone woofer.
Frequency response: 30Hz-40kHz, ±3dB.
Impedance: 8 ohms nominal, 6 ohms minimum.
Sensitivity: 95dB/W/m.
Recommended amplification: 2-100W RMS.
Dimensions: 40" (1025mm) H by 11.5" (290mm) W by 14.75" (380mm) D.
Weight: 60 lbs (27.3kg).
