Looks to b a vintage '60s Japenese speaker designed to compete with Goodman here in the States and Canada. On value Id say 75-125 pending on condition, after all one guy on AK found these in a thrift shop but ppl say they sound quite good.

Thanks! They look in mint condition. I understand that they are of high sensitivity, great for tube amps..

They are still posted so I may throw a little bait out there and see what happens..

Went fishin'.. He wants $100 for them.. I offered $10/Ea. just to see if he would bite.. LOL..

I'll wait a few days and see if they are still in his hands. The Christmas Credit Card bill will be comin' in any day now. Maybe he'll soften up a bit..

Coral certainly is respected for some of their stuff. No idea about this but you might have just head slapped him so if you don't get a response...

LOL.. I offered him the $10/Ea. He replied "Naaa".. I then asked him if he had a price in mind.. He then gave me the $100 amount so I don't think I made him too mad..

I haven't responded to him yet so I think I'm safe..

Have you seen these with the grills off, inspecting for something the likes of rotted out/damaged drivers? Heard them playing? Some of those old loudspeakers from that era have virtually "unremovable" grills. This was at the time no one wanted or bothered to see the driver that was doing this magic...ever seen the drivers on an old Acoustic Research AR2 ? Ugly to look at..

I had mentioned that in my first contact with him. Told him that I was afraid of surround rot for a speaker that old. Maybe he thought that I was BS'n him..

I did some research and believe they have cloth half round surrounds but they still may need some attention..

If they have the open back midrange with the plastic cup of about a litre then $100- may be a good price. I wouldn't pay that for a speaker with dodgy surrounds tho. if it's one of those with sealed back cone mid/tweeters $10- sounds about right
