Default Free: Focused electrostat arrays

A very kind a generous member of the PEboard gave these to me a few years ago. Based on his work in acoustics, I'd say he know's what he was up to Now I'm moving and will not have space, so I'd like to pass them along.

All dipole setup, basically the world's largest pair of headphones. Recommended highpass 2nd order at 400Hz. These are about 7 feet tall, base 2'x2' and come with all transformers etc you'll need. Do require a bit of rewiring as they're in 6 separate pieces at the moment (by design, so they'll fit in a sedan).

Local pickup in Pittsburgh only. Will post pics shortly.

So, I'm moving and don't want to do a complete reassemble, but here's a pic. Forgot to mention they have a tweeter center section.

Oh thank god you found a local guy to take them. If not I may have had to take one hell of a road trip to get something I really don't need, but they sure would be cool to play with.

I was thinking the same thing, and I'd only have to drive from Indiana
