Thanks, I goofed. These were at a customers house today, caught my as soon as walked in the door. I don't think the woman who owns them plays them, but she appreciates them anyway. She bought them for her husband at a garage sale ages ago, and could not not remember the name, and let me tilt one over for a look. They are nice looking, would have loved to have heard them.

They are worth hearing.
Offer to test them for her(and him) to make sure they won't hurt themselves if cranked up.


The caps may need reforming, so I'd hook them up and leave them barely audible for ten minutes or so, then see what they sound like.


If you can help them enjoy these speakers, you will get to hear something special(assuming they work reasonably well). I know. A neighbor had a pair when I was a kid.
