I bought these a couple years ago from another cam memeber. they were in excellent condition and sounded absolutly stunning. I have had pretty much every speaker system out there and these trump most. I also have a set of the Fab Model 1s. Im a huge fan of Jim Fabian and the speakers he has built. These speakers are an efficient 96db and sound incredible with low power tube amps.
Heres the bad. both woofers need to be re coned. I had a power surge and it fried the big Yamaha amp I had powering these speakers and killed the woofers. The tweeters and xovers are fine. I removed the drivers from my model 1s and installed in the stonehenge to confirm that they were fine.
I spoke with Jim Fabian at Fab audio. he can re cone these woofers for 145.00 per unit. I have no need for such a high end speaker as surrounds in my theater room so rather than sit and collect dust, they are being offered here.
Feel free to contact Jim at Fabaudio. he will confirm the re cone cost involved.
Im in no rush to sell. these speakers are worth every penny of my asking price so please, no low ball offers.
these specs were borrowed from Jims website.
The high efficiency and remarkable transient response found in the better loudspeaker systems of the 1940’s and 50’s is taken to a new level of refinement by the application of modern material, design and measurement technologies.
Our challenge is to produce state of the art loudspeaker systems with the inner detail, low distortion and coherence of the best electrostatic loudspeakers as well as the high efficiency; high power handling and neutral tonal balance of advanced dynamic drivers. We feel that all our designs comfortably meet these conflicting goals
The “Stonehenge” is a compact, floor standing column loudspeaker using the same drivers as our flagship “ Model 1”. Its modern design, braced laminate construction and mirror like gloss finish combine to create a true audio sculpture. The Stonehenge is also available in our less expensive sandstone finishes.
We use the most efficient, non-horn loaded drivers we can source in an unusual 10” 2way design. At 96db/w/m and a 36Hz bass roll off we have created a truly coherent and detailed full range, high efficiency loudspeaker system with the remarkable ability to take you back to the live event.
