Default Altec 420A (Y) Biflex fo Lampizator monster P24 OB speaker

Pair of Altec 420A (Y) 15" alnico biflex drivers used in altec Santana and popularized by Lampizator in his monster P24 Project.( The designator Y comes from the version used with tweeters attached to the front basket which were removed).Speakers have alu dust caps cut off.They do ring inthe upper range but a pair of new Great Plains Audio replacements will be provided to the buyer should he desire to bring speaker to original condition. My wood turner is making for me 3"cone phase plugs and those will be provided as well .I hope they turn up nice. This version doesn't come with magnet cover. Except the lack of dust caps (they do sound better without) the drivers are close to perfect condition for the age. I tried them with JE lab open baffle project and helper tweeter and they sound great. $450 plus shipping. I can send cheaper to Poland (albeit it would take over 6 weeks) and maybe Ukraine but I will have to enquire at local shipping shipping services. Thanks, L

I have a pair of these and I will have to agree they sound wonderful! I have them in open-baffles measuring 48" x 30" x 1". Best midrange I have heard so far...

Are the cones original?

Would you be able to see how much postage would be to Australia using USPS?

Is there any rubbing, rattling etc?

How many ohm's are they?

It's damn expensive to send it over the pond.With minimum dimmensions for one package at 17"x17"x10 and 25 Lbs (in order to fit priority mail requirements) it would be around $150 USD each. You better off looking for alnico Tannoy driver in OZ. The cones are original ,no rubbing scratching of any kind. The impedance is 8 Ohm with DCR just below 5 Ohm.
