Default For Sale: Volt 12" radial studio woofers NIB

I am selling a beautiful pair of 12" Volt RV-3143 woofers--brand new in their boxes, never used.

These units are optimized for studio use, and they stand head and shoulders above the competition. The symmetrical magnet assembly reduces flux modulation while the aluminum radial chassis bolted to the pole piece acts as a giant, super-efficient heatsink and works in tandem with the voice coil venting to minimize heat buildup and power compression. All of these factors add up to significantly reduce power compression and distortion, which yields extreme dynamic contrast and very natural sound.

This pair is superior to the R-3143 version imported by Solen of Canada (which they sell for $695 a pair plus shipping and import duty) as these have rear-vented voice coils for even lower thermal compression.

These were originally purchased directly from Volt in England with custom 16-ohm voice coils for use with tube amps.

Fs = 34 Hz
Re = 12 ohms
Qes = .37
Qms = 5.7
Qts = .35
Vas = 76 liters
Le = 3.2 mH
power handling = 300 watts RMS, 600 watts program

I will sell this very special pair for $350 + shipping.

To give you a better idea of what a bargain this is, consider that a 4-ohm version of this driver is used in the transmission-line loaded PMC model MB-2, which retails for 15,319 British pounds per pair (that's roughly $19,980.00).

These will probably sell very fast, so let me know immediately if you are interested.

I haven't weighed them, but they are indeed heavy. Shipping weight might be as high as 60 lbs. for the pair. I'll try to weigh them when I get a chance.

Mutley,

How does $85 shipping to the UK sound?

(That crunching sound you hear is me eating some of the shipping cost. )

Here's a link to an endorsement of monitors that use these bass drivers from Emil Berliner Studios. I'll try to post some pictures of the units soon.

$435 for the pair including shipping?

Sounds like an excellent deal!!

Give me a few minutes to check my bank balance (online banking is soooooo useful) and I'll let you know!
