Default Electric organ speakers

Have anyone tried making speakers with elements from electric organs?
Got my hands of a 12" whizzer cone element. Not alnico. Brand unknown - no labels or anything.
Put in an OB and got stunned!
It sounds quite good!

old Hammond or Alan organ speakers are perfect for OB not what many around here would call "audiophile" but considering that sometimes they can be had cheap at yard sales or thrift stores and are relatively wide band and sensitive what the heck, i've made and sold quite a few.

I see a lot of people are giving them away for free around here.
Paired it with a 15" h-frame bass. Need a little filtering on the mids, but it's growing on me!
Not audiophile, but I like the sound. Surprisingly good.

a few years back i found an old L100 hammond that had a bad tone generator, i sent the tone generator to scrap (made 40 cdn at a local metal recycler) kept the case amp and speakers intact complete with foot pedal volume control and sold it to someone for 200 as a unique TV stand the guy used it as his center channel in a home theatre!(not bad for a curbside find!)

ps don't tell my wife i found another one and i'm gonna do it again!

The organ speakers I have seen are part of the instrument's voicing and are NOT high fidelity. The big 15" woofers may work as a sub, but even then, if they came from the console, they need a very large box to work.

It may also be worth noting that the old Hammond Organ tone cabinets were designed to have a fairly steep rolloff above the 6 KHz region in an attempt to minimize the "key pop" noise inherent in the design.
