Some old four way or five way speakers owned by a professor at St. Andrews College in Laurenburg, NC.

It was formerly Flora McDonald where my mother rode out Hurricane Hazel while she was attending.

 

They were valued at $500.00 on the shipping label and shipped from NYC to NC in 1969. Our `72 Great White Buffalo (Chevy Impala) retailed at $3000 when brand new.

Been boxed up since `81 & they're about two feet tall, 60+ lbs each, got a Pioneer Laser Disc Player with them too!

Wooo Hoo! Anybody want that?

 

Grilles are glued on I'll see about plugging them into the Marantz if I can ever get into the den today!

A working laser disc player?  Actually, yes I am interested, my special needs brother in law might need it now, or at the least a back up.

Not sure, I don't have any, never did. I'll see about getting it to you if you're interested:

OK.

I tried those speakers out. They cleaned up alright with some Murphys Oil Soap.

Halfway through "Long Distance Runaround" four things were certain. 

 

I'm biased.

The bass is decent, they do dig a little deeper than my Super Heresy.

These lack the clarity and spacial quality of sound that any of the Heritage series do effortlessly.

They are inefficient.

 

Plugged the Supers back in. Experiment over.

anyone surprised?

 

 

still thinking about an upgrade for the doghouse stereo.

I see there is a pair of RF7, local - $1000  and a pair of Heresy for $550.  Still waffling on a sub for the LS. I'd like some... How much I need is another thing.  A lot of renderings don't have much below 50hz. I won't argue that there is some, I know better. 

I'm working with a small room. 300sq/ft. 25 X 12.

Except you wouldn't know unless you looked at it.
