Default Magnapan

In approx. 1985 I "stored" a pr. of Huge Magnapan speakers for a friend. They were approx 6 ft. tall & approx. 24" wide, & had white'ish burlap'esq grill cloth.

The Sound was AMAZING!!!!! We were both in Awe of their performance on my system.

No 28 yrs. later I'm trying to find out What those speakers actually were?

I will Never forget their sound!!!!

Does any here have any knowledge of Big Magnapan speakers?

Magnapan Experts?????

I don't remember what type of tweeters (super-tweeters?) they had. What I remember is their laser-like accuracy.

Thanks for giving me 2 leads on what Magnapan's to look at.
