Interesting “Vintage Cornrhorn Cabinets” on eBay.

Ran across this listing on eBay. Any idea what these were? Looks like a fun diy project in the making. I believe the listing is in Washington state. Says the bass drivers were 12”. Wish you could get a better pick of the “horn section”.

I have never had the Aristocrat, but did grow up with my Dad's EV Marquis in the house. Similar in components but totally different design. If they are similar in sound, they can hold their own for their size. For a project, there are several singles offered on ebay (singles due to they were offered in the days before stereo). 

 

Here is link from a quick search. I didn't read it, but will later.

The ebay auction is not and Aristocrat.  The rear folding is wrong.  Still, nice cabilets and could be a good project. 

 

This is an Aristocrat.

Good catch. I only glanced at the first pic on the bay, and was wrong lol. They look like a cross between the Aristocrat and the Regency.

Built Aristocrats from EV blueprints in the 1960's with my Dad.  Apparently, Paul Klipsch licensed the Aristocrat design to EV for better pricing.

Thunderous sound on a Dynakit Stereo-35 with Jensen 12" + small horns!  I have photos of a mahogany EV Aristocrat inside and out, with the magnificent EV SP-12 Alnico woofer with chrome-plated magnet cover!  Those were the days!

I have a pair of empty Marquis in the garage if anyone is near Cleveland and looking for a project.  No drivers.

Jensen TP-100 Concerto ...smaller brother of the Jensen Tri-Plex TP-200

 

Grills do appear to be like Aristocrat...

Those look nice, I'll take a pair of the TP-200. I bet the cabs were nice quality. Wonder what year this was? 1960s perhaps?

 

Edit: listing says originally for sale in 1959.

For sale in 1957: https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/jensen/tp-200.shtml

 

Found empty cabs/no drivers on ebay for $3500 + shipping, or a single complete unit working for $5000. Must be mahogany gold.

FYI, The TP-200 was the inspiration for the extremely popular Onken cabinets favored by the Altec co-ax/two way  crowd...

unfair advantage...I have a set of the TP-200s

 

To be clear, no horn loading, these are bass reflex cabinets...
