Default Sears SP-2005

Hi, I bought a pair of speakers at a thrift store.
I hooked them to my spair solidstate reciever and they work well.

I want to know people's opinions on this model, how old it is and stuff like that. They are in really good physical condition, very well taken care of. I paid
$7 for the pair.

Specs:

Speaker compliment:

1x 8"woofer
1x 3" tweeter

Impedance: 8 ohm

Maximum input rating: 15 watt

Made in Korea

My limited experience with Sears speakers is that they have models with decent drivers, but the overall design and implementation is very poor. I don't know about yours though. Can you post a few pictures of the drivers, and of the insides?

I just got a 4.0 megapixal digital camera from the thrift store.
The camera is from europe! It has beautiful pictures on the 64 MB sd card of some
place in europe. France? it is from 2002, and I paid $3 for it and the good bag and
nice long USB cable.

I tried it, the pitcture quality is crap. But it is better then not having a camera at all.

Oh sorry, I posted too quick without reading closely.
Give me a few minutes to unscrew the back and take a pic of the drivers.

My cat decided she would join the fun and came to see what was going on in the kitchen.

Looks just like my old Sony 2-ways

Just a guess but generic 8inch 8R driver with a good mid-range run full. as that is a first order high pass; single cap in line with the tweeter.

Boxes look OK, may be worth your while to play a little bit with the XO or replace the tweeter with a bigger one and add a super tweeter but not to spend too many dollars

Sorry guys, I make a mistake, the reason the quality of the pics were utter $hit was because I took the pics at the lowest setting. Duh. So I took two new ones at the highest setting.
