Default Peak (or Coral) 8CX-50

Hi, Does anybody know these speakers?
I'm looking at a peak 8CX- 50 but i suspect it is a Coral. (same model# and specs).
Does anyone know anything about them? Thanks
Colin

Coral OEM'd for a lot of other speaker brands, so it most probably is Coral if it looks exactly the same...

94db/1m/1W (100dB at shorter distance ~1/2m)

2uF cap for tweeter. Replace it with new polyprop if you can.

Highish Q.

Hi Colin,

I too have a pair of the Peak 8CX50's and I'm building them a pair of Coral 8CX501 BR cabinets. Do you mind if I ask what you've done with yours?

Doug

PS I quickly knocked together a pair of OB's for them. Fantastic!

I had 4 of the 501s, two per back loaded horn enclosure - about 17 -18 inches footprint and 31 inches tall, Mouth was 10 X 17 inches.
Since these added to about 16 ohms imp. and I had two goodmans horn 15 ohm trebax horns I used the goodmans crossovers. I had some old dome tweeters which I put in series , one vertical and one facing forward. They sounded so immediate and impressive - effortless. The tweeters on top sounded better than the horn tweeters on the 501s, possibly due to lobing issues with speakers being side by side. The opening tracks of Dark side of the moon at any volume was scary. As were the alarm clocks!!! Not very scientific a setup but I want them back!!!!!!

These were the speakers I mentioned in an old thread to do with listening experiences. They were run off a Lynsley Hood 75 watt SS amp.

Does anyone have the T-S parameters for these?.
GM posted a set (with a qualification) but I have not been able to reconcile my measurements with his.
Thanks
