Default Anyone heard Philips AD50600/SQ8?

Has anyone ever heard about this full range driver?
It was a product of Philips back to 1970s.
Is it any good?
I would appreciate for any info.

Here is a link with some info.

I don't know German, but it looks like a midrange or "squawker" 130Hz to 10KHz.

Cheers,
Gio.

Thanks for the information.
I just got two of them. They are great drivers, even they are already more than 30 years old.
Here are photos of AD50600

They have a sealed tube behined. Probably they sound good even without enclosure. However, it lacks low end (well, it is only 5") and has a weak resolution. Maybe I will try to put it in 3D spiral horn configuration and add a tweeter.

Charles,

i had a conversation with a couple of guys from Pretoria while being in your corner of the world lately.
Those Afrikaner always have faces that look like exposed to nuclear radiation. Nice lingo, but if you try to concentrate you haven't got a clue what they are saying.
People in some countryside areas overhere talk very similar. Sort of like German and Swiss.

I do too. I used to like tweeter AD0160T very much and still have a pair working. Not sure, but I think the first Peter Snell's speakers had a Philips midrange.

The 2 active motional feedback Philips loudspeakers were really good. At the time of introduction i considered buying the larger model, but refrained because of expecting bad resale value. Secondhand prices did dive later, and i got me a set for a lot less.
Wish i hadn't sold them to a friend, they've become collectors items.
A relative of mine who worked at the Philips lab also confirmed that they developed great stuff, but never figured out how to proper market it. I still have one of the first CD-player model, a pre-series item before it went on sale.

Based on the number of Afrikaner i've met in 25 years, more resemblance than differences. Not just the language. I feel very much at home among people from Pretoria.
