Folded horns at the thrift store?

Don't look like Fraziers...almost looks like an RCA Ubangi:

Great score! You couldn't buy the birch plywood for that.

these use 4$ piezo tweeters

 

An assumption... these used Foster (not Fostex) tweeters. They weren't expensive, but I don't believe they were piezos... might have been though, since this is a two way and you could use them without an actual crossover. Piezos done with a regular crossover could sound really good.

These came out in 1976... They look to be in really good shape. The midhorn is an RCF aluminum horn.

I love this place.  He buys thrift shop speakers and IMMEDIATELY gets advice on modding.  LOL.

 

Yes, we’re notorious enablers here.  I bought a pair of La Scalas, joined the forum, and within two years I had six Klipsch Heritage Series speakers.  Now I have ten of them.

By “here”, I meant this forum.  Did you think I was referring to somewhere else?
