Default Pair Celestion T4156 Ribbon Tweeters

For sale is a pair of Celestion T4156 ribbon tweeters almost brand new in their original boxes for your next speaker project. These were originally used in the Celestion 3000,5000,7000 speakers that were put out in the 1980's. These speakers sold for between $1700-$3500 back then so they are very high quality drivers with a unique suspension to keep the ribbons in the magnetic gap. I only used these once in a quick setup with some Vifa 8" woofers in a sealed enclosure for a couple of days and they sounded great. The time I had them hooked up I had a bank of caps in front of them so they have not been exposed to DC, and the ribbons are taut and as new. The ribbons themselves are 21" long and 1/2" wide and designed to be crossed over at 900hz 3rd order, at least they were in the Celestion 3000,5000,7000 speakers. These are low impedance as they were designed originally with transformers to raise the impedance, but I have read that was the weak part of the design anyway. I ran these with a JVC RX-F10 switching receiver and it had no problem driving them and the Vifa woofers. The reason for selling them is I have way too many other ribbons lying around for other projects and don't see myself using these anytime soon. Let me know if you have any other questions about the drivers. I can email more pictures on request. Buyer pays shipping. I haven't posted much on here but have been selling on ebay for over ten years without a negative transaction under the name (acrosounder), you can send me a message there if you question my validity.
thanks

Why not post the real picture here. It sure is a pain to go to
another web page for a photo.

Default specs

I have not seen specs on these drivers by them selves as they were not sold separately, but the high/mid section of a line of speakers Celestion put out in the 80s. I did however find a stereophile review in which they took measurements for what it is worth. I say what its worth because the speakers utilized the drivers in monopole configuration with a crossover using 1980s components and a matching transformer of unknown quality to raise the impedance for use by your average consumer. All of which will be measured and come through in these measurements. But here is the link:

thanks
