How about those Teslas and Parmeko twin cones (WITHOUT) the Lorenzo pretend tweeter bridge? IF they can be tamed they are brilliant.

I was raised in Mountrath in S.Ireland: in those days it had 22 shops and 23 pubs!.......that is a VERY conservative town in Ireland!

As you spent time in Suffolk - as did I - that is FAR too close to Holland!

We spent a bit of time in Felisxtowe, which is right on the Channel and I learned how to swim in the North Sea with my chum Tricky Toll. From there you could almost see the Frenchies shooting brown eye salutes towards us.....

Seems that Holland is about to loose some appeal for a certain element:

1950's Parmeko Co-axial 15" BBC speakers
they're nice , indeed .

in any case , one need to hear those boobie RCA's , to became aware what's possible with that construction

major difference between RCA and all other coaxials is position of tweeter .
and , as illustration of linearity - there is just one 4uF cap as complete xover (nuttin' in front of bass)

Having once owned the very first pair of Tannoy reds - in one off enclosures all built for Olympic studios (powered by a RAdford hybred TT100, I am still amazed at the capabilities of some old(!) units - when properly used.
