Have you found anything out regarding your Black Acoustics speakers? I recently acquired a matched pair of 3-way "Night" speakers by Black Acoustics (Costa Mesa) made in the early 1980's. Haven't found any info on them. I bought these from a retired music exec who said the company was obscure but the speakers were considered high end and originally retailed for $500 apiece.

the only thing i know, is they really are impressive for Movie audio reproduction, house shakin. i blew the 4 amp fuses a coupla times, thentook the low frequency from them to some other boxes and that stopped the fuse blowing problem, but the subs i was usin clearly werent as cool as the ones in the onyx cabs, i got the ability to be a little louder but the bass suffered. Im very impressed with these.
