Decoding my Heresy serial numbers

Recommended Posts

I've got a pair of Heresy speakers that I bought between 1983 and 1985 while in the Air Force and stationed in Europe.

 

I've attached pics of the labels on the back of the speakers... can anyone tell me when they were manufactured, etc?

 

Thanks,

RSorb

X codes shipped in 1982.  Paper logbook entries end a few thousand Heresy's before this one, so "late 1982" is the best I can do.

Just face the rear of the speaker cabinet, then look at the rear edge of the side panel to your left....up around one inch below the joint with the top panel, there...and there should be one or more initials stamped into the plywood edges there....if the letter "A" is one of those letters, then  I built the cabinet.  One or moe of those initials will also be stamped in deeper, and those are the initials of the sander of the speaker cabinet.  They really AREN'T stamped in "deeper" but were stamped in after the sander finished sanding the speaker...which makes them APPEAR to have been  stamped in deeper.  The builder code letters were often filled in with wood putty prior to sanding the rear edges, and then sanded down so much that they are difficult to discern....so look hard to find them.
