RF-7 original speaker

Recommended Posts

I bought two RF-7 (original) speakers on ebay. I only need one but its hard to find these rascals. It has the black center....ahh? Forgot what to call it? Black center hub in the middle of the copper spun woofer. It is an RF-7 original for RF-7 i, not Rf-7ii or Rf-7 iii. The speaker is sound. Has a tiny small indent on the copper maybe 1/8th - 1/4 inch but it is not punctured. Plays great! No issues. Drivers are fine! The speaker is used. Not new but appears to be in very good condition. I already mounted the other one and my B&K amp is blasting my neighbors off their bed. Its a keeper.

 

No guarantee's. I have no interest in making a profit. I kind of want to keep the extra speaker but likely won't need it? I paid $380 for the two, including shipping - so I am willing to sell it at cost - $190 and i will pay for shipping. I make no profit and I helped a man who has been unemployed in NY since March 16th due to the COVID. I refused to debate his price. It was high. I know but he needed the money for rent. Personally? I'd rather had paid $100 per speaker but such was not the case? 

 

I can only accept check or money order. If I figure out my moms apple phone I will load a pic?

Welcome, nice post. You got a very good deal on that pair of speakers, and you're passing along the deal to someone else.....nice. This should sell easily.

I think he is just talking about 1 woofer of the RF-7, not a whole speaker with cabinet, grill, horn, and dual woofers.

Yes...I bought the woofers, not the entire RF-7 speaker.

 

I waited for 2 years to finally be the first guy to jump on a pair in great condition. 

 

Some say the RF-7 iii are far better? Maybe but they are twice what I paid for my originals = $3699 plus tax!

 

I have noted a big difference in harshness going from my 2006 Arye cd player to my Oppo

Yes equipment matching can make all the difference on level of harshness I have a pair of original RF-7's in my garage with my Sunfire set I can crank them up till the walls shake with zero harshness yesterday I swapped out amplifiers with my Carverfest 20wpc EL-84 tube amp and just for fun I decided to crank it up a bit the amp sounds fantastic with tons of bottom end but at the upper limits it does start to get a little harsh sounding which was probably just me over exerting the limits of the amp. My Sunfire 300x2 will run you out of the room with shear volume but never gets harsh sounding.
