Default SIARE Loudspeakers

Does anyone know where can I obtain Siare speakers, made in France? Long ago, in the 80's I received their product list from Audax, France, but I ignored it, and now I need it.

Hi vacuumhead

Could it be that you mean the Italian manufacturer Ciare, whose homepage you will find under www.ciare.com ?

Regards

Charles

Charles, thank You for taking time to reply.
The Co. was named SIARE. I figured out they were some subsidiary of AUDAX, because I asked AUDAX to send me some product info, and they included about 40 speakers from SIARE. But, it was when I was still in Yugoslavia, and that whole list is lost know. On the AUDAX site , you won't find anything, search through YAHOO returns about 20 web pages that mention them, but I still can't find the manufacturer.
All the best, Jack

Default Re: SIARE

A sherlock search finds some info on Andrea Ciuffoli's pages (near the bottom). Some serious looking driver.

These guys list them as a unit they repair -- perhaps emailing them will turn up more info.

Thanks Dave,
I am waiting for Andrea's page to open, and once I browse through the whole thing, I'll ask him where to get the speakers.
Thanks again, now I'll visit Your page.

Default Siare

Hi Vacuumhead,

I am replying to a very old post of yours, having just joined this forum.
I am afraid SIARE has been defunct for some years and were the main competitor of Audax (defunct many times, but rebirthing regularly...)
The technical director of Siare started Davis Acoustics when Siare folded and the company is still alive and kicking (www.davisacoustics.com). I doubt that Michel still be in charge, but some of their products, specially the full range are definitely Siare-inspired...
You can find a lot of interesting drivers from all over the place at www.toutlehautparleur.com (you will have to sharpen your French, though...) or I also use www.madisound.com in the USA.
I bought my Audax drivers for my next project from them.
If you are interested in full range, open baffle, high efficiency speaker design, keep coming back to my blog: www.frenchvintagehifi.com, where I share the history of my passion for speaker design and turntables. I am embarking on a new project soon, so stay tuned!

Hi vacuumhead,

This is a late reply. In the Speaker Builder Mags, Bruce Edgar designed a midrange horn that utilized the Siare 16 VR. At that time I bought two unit and build the horns. Since then I've moved to other horn designs of my own and the Siares are still in use on these, also described in my articles on concrete horn design in SB.
I like them very much and lament that I've been unable to obtain more of them. I'll check out the websites mentioned above.

Robert

Default Who has overtaken the French loudspeaker brand SIARE (not CIARE !!) ??

Who knows this?
SIARE offered at those days a lot of interesting loudspeakers and boxes.
If I compare the pics of those speakers, I think by today's offered models to the brands Supravox and Davis.
here some links and pics:

Siare doesn't exist anymore. Mr Visan, One of the most reputable SIARE designer launched his own brand called DAVIS

Best from France
