Hi Tinitus, we are both from Denmark. I have 2 SUPER SUPER 8 at home, since I "killed" my Skyscraper - known from "High Fidelity".

Thanks Bj, its tempting and I do have a pair of Lowther Standard Acousta with modified concrete foldings, in a garage but in bad condition
As said, I am in the process of building a 3way monitor and only need to cut the wood
Then I have a 4way dipole with 2 diy ribbons and a diy 6" and I might buy the new Mach5 18", then everything is in place and "only" need assembling

I guess it will take while till I will be a "fullrange guy" again, and then maybe a coaxial would be more fun its impossible to "turn back the clock"

Would be nice to see a picture of your drivers

First "stereo" I ever bought had two Richard Allan CG8T speakers in reflex enclosures. Very sticky corrugated surrounds. Sounded absolutely believable on tenor sax for some reason. Still have them in storage somewhere over in New Zealand. These had paper cones so not the ones in the trhead.

Hi Bj,
I bought the Pavane kit, but it was earlier, all three drivers had paper cones. The crossover had a lot more components than that pic show.

The Sarabande on the market at the same time did not have three tweeters, just one.
The Pavane had a power handling of just 25W but was so efficient that it played just as loud (to my ears) as it's replacement, a Tannoy Berkley (92db/W) with the amplifier set to the same level (real watts from Crimson Elektrik) .

Nice paper on the 8" line

Interesting that they were available in 5 - 8 - 15 ohm

Would still like to see a close up real picture of a driver, still think they had a certain charisma except the polycone

When you do, you should loose the frames too... like flash, another bad idea for web-sites...
