Default 80s DIY Focal, Blast From My Past

This is my third DIY attempt back in the 80s. Focal 7C02s with a Vifa tweeter, Al or Ti I don't remember. I used them with a fisher 500C form many years then a Scott 222C. In 98 we moved and they ended up on a shelf since. Today I was cleaning the basement and decided to give them a play.

These are a dang nice sounding set! LOL

They sit on top of my latest build and don't give much up to them. Highs are very slightly lacking as are punch and dynamics. Bass is deeper and balance is very nice.

Sealed, right? Time to make some dedicated stands. Leave room for a helper-woofer!

Very cool that you still have them in one piece and they're still working!

Rear ported BR.

At times I used them with subs in the 90s. Audio Concepts AC12s. Another oldy but goody. Maybe a Stereo 70 with Nikko for the subs.

The cones are moldy but the rubber surrounds are fine. A little clean up is in order.
