My oldest living relics
 
2 Attachment(s)
Boy have these been around. They're the oldest still with me.

Built around '78 for the back of my brothers Ford Pinto. Imagine that, the back of a Pinto and they're still kickin' today.

They're not actually my computer speakers, I use them downstairs in my work area with a dual 10" bandpass. The woofers came from whomever I could swindle and the tweeters are a 3/4 polycarb unit from Radio Shack. The grilles are held on with ring nails pushed into holes in the wood. All wood cut with a handsaw.

I miss those days

Anybody else with old bombproof speakers still alive?

I have a pair of ugly looking backloaded horns up in the attic. I made those by the end of the seventies. They use 12" drivers made by DNH (late sixties) and a p@#%o tweeter and they are made out of ugly particle board.

About a month ago I was given a pair of old Sansui speakers. I'm assuming their from the 70's with the wooden matrix grills. I'll dig into them one day soon.

Actually, i do recall a set that are probably still in daily action -- i'm have drivers to do a V2 now -- in 1975 i built a set of EPI microTower clones for my brother using Philips 5" FRs...

Navin, the drivers in question are a set of Audax PR17s, i've some ideas for them, but too many other things in the queue ahead of them
