Yeah Dixielanders sound good for your app. There's also a big horn with a small [Dixie HF] horn in its mouth that performs similarly, almost an unfolded Dixie, but probably harder to find. You're probably being charged a premium due to the fancy outer cabinets as those are probably quite a bit rarer (Jack Frazier had Dixies in fancy cabinets in his living room - a personal favorite). Someone over in FB FUG may have a set of Dixies for sale.

Those guys over there also know of good replacement parts, recone shops (ex: Freeman-Tuell in Dallas), and sometimes have legacy parts for sale. We have seen legacy parts on ebay and some of the woofers have been reconed; I've searched "Frazier speaker" (no plural just in case) with good results and occasionally mystery stuff pops up with common misspellings of Frazier. Craigslist is a very simple-minded search engine picky about spelling, like plural vs. non-plural.

 I am on the fence about getting these Dixielander speakers.   These are the style that is in the home wood cabinets.  Ironically I actually prefer the "utility" look better.   Yesterday I just dropped some big cash on having my car fixed and right now I am out of work.   If I went with something like an EV SX-300 (a similar performing speaker to the Dixielander in terms of specs) and something breaks on that, I can easily get spare parts for it.  But I tried to look up parts for the Dixielander and ixsnay. Nothing.  The main concern about this is that I will be storing the speakers in my garage.  While they will sheltered from the elements, they will be exposed to wide temperature swings going from summer to winter.   For me the outside wooden cabinets are just going to add to the weight and I probably would sell them off separately.   But again, to have a driver fail on a rare speaker like this would NOT be good.

 

Does anyone have some information on suitable replacements?  I know back in the 90's many clubs were replacing the original Frazier drivers with something more common like EV or JBL.  Sadly, there was much mismatching going on here and this is what initially lead me to believe that Frazier was not a very good speaker.  Yet, the local amusement park had Frazier Super Texans for decades and they sounded awesome in that park.  In fact they were the best sounding speakers they ever had.   In the 90's they finally replaced the Fraziers and every few years there after they replace them again.  From what I seen so far, they had the Fraziers from their inception in the 60's through the 80's.  In the 90's they had Community speakers and they were VERY clear on the mids and highs, but not very strong on the low end.   In the early 2000's they had JBL and they were the WORST sounding speakers they had.   Now they have Bose and they have a nice sounding midrange, with rolled off highs.  It is warmer sound than the JBL's or Community speakers, but still not strong in the low end.   In terms of bass performance, the Fraziers were the best.   But that is my only experience I had with listening to ORIGINAL Fraziers.  Almost every other experience I dealt with them, they had substituted drivers.  While I am not against that, I am worried about mismatching.   So unless I know what are GOOD substitute replacements for the drivers, I don't think I am going to buy these speakers.

 

I have not heard the Dixielanders in person, but I found this video on You Tube with a guy that is running four of them in a barn sized man-cave:

 

 

That guy is using a phone!   I think that sounds fantastic.   Granted he is using four of them in there.  I don't see a subwoofer, but there could be one.  But if that is just the Dixielanders doing the bass response there, that is pretty darn good!

 

BTW, I have attached a photo of the inside of one of the cabinets.  Can anyone tell me if that is an original Frazier driver?  From what I seen of other Dixielander pictures the driver is blue and has the name Frazier stamped on the back.   This driver is significantly different.  But then again, it could be an earlier model.  I am wondering if someone can verify that it is indeed an original driver.

I think they are in utility cabinets. Look closer at the edge of that pic - looks grey like a Texan. AFAIK they were just 'set' inside of a fancy cabinet for home use (that's how Jack's pair were done and some others I've seen posted).
That may be an original woofer from the 'old as dirt' era. Lol. Then again it could have been replaced with something old. I'm not that familiar with that era of Fraziers that have those old paper-wrapped capacitors tied down with strips of wood (when I was there they were more modern-looking caps tied down with nylon tie raps). The coils and caps look original though.
Anyhow you could probably do better on price, especially if you're not paying the extra premium for the fancy outer cabinet. And drivers can be found or reconed (again, Freeman-Tuell in Dallas for one). The modern E-V woofer may very well be compatible since they used E-V's in Texans and other models as a heavy duty upgrade to older regular-type woofers.

 

I don't put any stake in any sound recording of a speaker. How is the original sound going to make it through correctly?

Anyhow you need to get your butt over to Facebook FUG for broader input, hardly any of them look over here anymore. Plus someone may have or know of the Dixies you're looking for at a much better price.

Hello John,

 

I guess you probably saw the Dixies on Ebay then.   Yeah, when I was looking over the inside as the seller was gracious enough to open up the cabinet, I was thinking the same thing in that if those drivers were original, they must be REALLY old,  since the insides of Dixies I have seen before have a blue woofer in it.   On that woofer I don't even see a Frazier stamp on it.  So it may not even be original.   Since this was a popular speaker during the 60's through 80's, they are just very old speakers.   Given that they were stored in a garage and the woofer casting does show signs of pitting already, I know that continued storage in a garage would just have them on a brink of failure and with my luck, it would be when I would have a party.  Then I would have to chase around and try to find replacement parts for it.   Also, in the very least, I know I would have to redo those crossovers as those caps would certainly be leaking and have all sorts of other problems.   Also, I don't really need the external cabinets.   Taking everything into consideration,  I decided against it yesterday and it just so happens the buyer sold them off as well. 

 

As for getting a pair of these in the future?   Well, I guess I would only do so if I know of a commonly available driver that can replace the originals with similar performance.   I think for now though, I am just as well off with a pair of EV SX-300's:

 

https://www.electrovoice.com/binary/global/image.php?image=/binary/Sx300_mntr-trans.png&width=454&height=380

 

I am very familiar with this speaker and they are pretty lightweight and one can be carried in each hand.  Spec wise they are similar to the Dixielanders, but I doubt they have the same bass extension the Dixie has.  But the high frequencies go to 20k and not 15k.   But it is a speaker that can benefit with a subwoofer, which is something I can rent in the event I have a LARGE party.  But for average listening, I know the SX-300 will be fine.

 

I don't think I am going to sign up for Facebook as I don't like the way sites like that are organized.  It is just one response after another and you really can't search for anything there with any good results.  Why such sites became more popular than a traditional forum is beyond me.  It is doubtful I would come across a pair of Dixielanders in my area again anyway.   If anything, the Super Texan was more popular here in the 70's and 80's as I had seen a few venues with that speaker including the aforementioned amusement park.  In my clubbing days in the early 90's the club I went to had them as well and yeah, that was one of the places where they probably substituted the drivers as they sounded terrible there.   At any rate, I know where you guys are on Facebook now, but I am probably not going to sign up for it.  

 

Thank you for your help.

Oh I forgot about the stamps. Since Frazier didn't make drivers they were either ink stamped from the vendors or we placed Frazier stickers on them.

Yeah come to think of it that woofer looks highly oxidized. Yet the other metallic stuff I see looks fine. And I'm used to studs with nuts holding the woofers in place, not screws, although this version is a little before my time.

 

I preferred it over here too as I'm not a big fan of FB. But what happened was that this site made some web changes, the Frazier page disappeared [or was in danger of disappearing, I forget], so the folk or folks who started it here made the move to FB. It picked up steam over yonder via the proliferation of FB, so stuck despite this page coming back after the site change was complete.

 

Let me know your general area and next time I'm on FB I'll see if there is an ad there for Dixies of regional interest.

So do you have some kind of idea of how old those speakers were?   I was a little leery about that though.  As I said, from other Dixielanders I have seen, the woofers were blue and there was an inked stamp on it with the Frazier name and model info.   So it may not even be original.

 

Yes, I don't know what people see in Facebook and other sites like it.   I tried to look for past info on one FB page and just hated it right off the bat.  You can't find anything that is older!  LOL!

 

I am in the vicinity of the Town of Babylon, NY.    In the 80's this town had quite a few Frazier sightings by me.  But back in the day it was mostly the Super Texans.  If you come across those in my area I would certainly look into those too.   In fact one Texan would do the trick nicely.   It is just the weight of those things put me off as they are pretty heavy.  The Dixielanders come in at a better weight.

 

Thanks again!

Based on the caps I'd say late '60's to early '70's. I really need to see more but I missed the ad. I don't trust that woofer for ID. Early ones had wooden horns while later ones had plastic resin horns. Some Dixies were made up until around 1980.

 

Yeah the NY area was one of the hotbeds for Fraziers. A guy named Sid Zimet had a well known audiophile shop there. They were also in clubs like Studio 54 and venues like Madison Square Gardens.

 

I couldn't spot the Dixie info I thought I saw; the problem is some folks just make a post rather than an ad, or mention they have some for sale in a comment to someone else's post. Anyhow there is a guy in your general area, maybe Long Island, that is clearing out his collection. There's several other members in the area too that buy and sell Fraziers as they upgrade, downgrade, or their wives kick them in the butt for having too much stuff. Lol. One guy is parting out drivers from some scrapped Fraziers. If you could make a post over yonder describing your venue like you did here they might have Dixies or something similar to sell.

Hello again,

 

Well, the fellow sold those Dixielanders.   I was hesitant as I wasn't sure if those drivers were original and even so, as you pointed out with the caps, they are probably very old.  This was the only time I have seen the Dixielanders with the wooden cabinets.  The fellow that was selling them was laughing as he thought the speakers were more valuable because of the wooden cabinets and here I was looking for the more industrial looking ones.   As it is though, I only recently (this year) heard of the Dixielanders even though I have known of the Super Texans since my youth.

 

So MSG had Fraziers too, huh?  Yeah, I have seen here alot.   Funny you mention a guy here on Long Island as that is where I am located and have been here all my life.  I believe another venue that had the Fraziers was the Long Island arena.  I believe they had them when Peter Frampton recorded his live version of "Do You Feel Like We Do"  over there.   I think even the Jones Beach Theater had them at one time (but I could be mistaken here).    I heard the name Sid Zimet before and not always in positive tones.  He was kind of like a "Sam Ash" in NYC.

 

Well, if you have some additional info on this (other) Long Island fellow, perhaps I can keep an ear to the ground in the event he gets some Fraziers in.   Frankly it doesn't have to be the Dixielanders as I could do the job with one Super Texan as well.  For parties, stereo sound really isn't necessary.  Even when I was a DJ, I had a mono system.  It was bi-amped though having one channel of a two channel amp running the bass and the other channel running the mids/highs. 

 

I am not a big fan of Facebook, but I guess I could check out the FUG thread over there.

 

BTW, in a different vein, I came across a pair of Frazier Super Midget speakers.  Are these any good?  Are these like a mini folded horn (given how deep the cabinet is).  Supposedly it has a single 4" driver in it.  I am pretty skeptical about a driver that size being full range, but I have not found any specs on this speaker.

 

As for my outdoor project, I may end up with a pair of EV SX-300 speakers.  I know of them well and they are small and pretty good performers.  They have a bit more range on the high end than the Dixielanders and they also handle 3x the power too.   But the bass response does roll off quite a bit.  They DO benefit from subwoofers though.   Something I wouldn't need with a Super Texan.  LOL!!

 

Thank you again for the info!

Ironic timing. 3 sets of Dixies for sale in Long Island PM (private message) sent. I hope you know how to open it as I've never PM'ed here before. I do see a message envelope icon at the top of this page.

 

MSG yes. I believe someone posted a pic over yonder, probably here too back when this was real active.

Cool on Frampton. I wonder what sound we're hearing? That live version was one  of the best if not the best at that time.

So was Sid like The Soup Nazi or something? Lol

 

Bi-amp: There was the model Nine. A 'disco' version of the F12-4H (search Frazier F12-4H and you should see them as they were pretty common). They added 4 Piezo tweeters between the 4 horns, the woofer is heavier duty, and cabinet stronger. Bi-ampable (big terminal strip on the back with jumpers to make it regular or bi-amp). The discos wanted more power capability, louder, and ridiculous highs (remember disco?! ugh). Commercial grey like Dixies. Now the F12-4H is actually a very large ceiling speaker for convention center type spaces, hence the bass ports shoot out the two sides and the horns are angled outward. But there's several guys over yonder that love them for home use and have repainted them and grilled them to look better. Made little stands to improve the living room sound (I suggested they corner load them for the side bass ports to reflect off of). Of course there's a few that hung them up in there garages or patios, they were built with eye bolts for hanging.

 

Super Midgets are good little bookshelf speakers. Smallest of the home line and the only folded of those were a few back in the mono days. Bass port on front. The last ones used that 4" same as Bose 901's. Older ones a little larger driver and dual port out back so I'm guessing a little better. The bass port and cab size gives it decent range for what little there is to work with but of course the highs fall off. It's an economy/apartment model per se.

 

Hey I don't like Facebook either. Too much unnecessary crap to look at to see the stuff I want to see. So I keep my friends list short, mostly family and a few close friends (and some of them are too noisy, but there's a way to turn off seeing their posts without unfriending them > unfollow).

But anyhow I think you can have an account with no friends, the Frazier group is a separate 'group' entity from the main FB  crud. Then you just bookmark the group page on your device and when you open it you won't even see the other FB crud.

Hello John,

 

Yes, I did receive the message and also contacted Mike already.  I have outlined the details in a PM to you. 

 

An update on Frampton.   It was "Show Me The Way" (a more popular tune) that was recorded at the Long Island Arena.  "Do You Feel Like We Do," while PLAYED and recorded at the Arena, it wasn't used on the Frampton Comes Alive album.   Ironically it was another New York venue in Plattsburgh where that song was recorded for the album.   I have been asking around about the speakers used at the arena at the time.  I am FAIRLY sure they used Texans there up until the 80's. 

 

The F12-4H.  I am not feeling that speaker.  It just looks too darn obtuse.   Keep in mind I am an old DJ guy and for me the ultimate speaker was the Altec Voice of the Theater A7.   This was also a popular club speaker back in the 70's.  The famed 2001 had these.    BTW,  I am a big fan of disco...so no Ugh here!  In fact it is disco music as to why I am after the Dixielanders.   When I have house parties, I ONLY play dance music and disco from the 70's and 80's.   However, my main interest is rock music though.    As for corner placement, I would be curious about porting the rear chamber for extra bass extension off the corner in a room.    But for outside use at higher volumes, it is best as is. 

 

As I mentioned in my private message to you, I had asked Mike and he doesn't have a pair of Super Midgets.   I can get these from someone else, but that person is asking $100 for the pair.  But it is nice to know that the speaker uses the same driver as the old style 901's.  I did compare them and was surprised to see that.  And yes, Frazier did make a 5" driver in the 50's,  (there is one on Ebay now),  in a column array.   More than likely it was that same driver they used in the Midgets initially.

 

Sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc, just seem to "stack" one message on top of the other with no organization in terms of subject.  So searching for something is made that much more difficult.  If you ask me,  social media sites like that are a step BACKWARD from forums.

 

Thank you again for your help.  I guess we will see how things pan out this week.  Naturally I will report back to you either way if I do pick up the Dixielanders or not.

Interesting (Frampton). Great tune on a great album! I didn't know the recordings were spread out as I thought it was all one concert.

Yeah the F12-4H doesn't seem ideal for your app. Frazier made an X-15 that has a similar look to the A7. Short wide horn type for small venues.

Well discos were always way too loud, and the less one likes a kind of music the less one's hearing can tolerate the loudness. But that's where the action was at, dancing and all. And it appears to be making a nostalgic comeback the way things do.

 

Have a good week,

JD

Hello John,

Well, I guess the reasoning is sound.  When they decided to record Frampton during his "Frampton Comes Alive" tour, naturally they did record the entire concert at each venue, then they just hand picked the ones that sounded best for the album.   I had NEVER considered the Long Island Arena as a "prime" location, especially for sound.  The place resembled an airplane hanger and you know those are not the best for acoustics.  Yet, it seems that song just sounded amazing and hence it was the Arena version that made it to the album.   Granted back in the day, when the song was recorded, the LIA was still somewhat in it's prime.  But then the Nassau Colliseum opened up in the mid 70's and it was much larger and had better acoustics, so that spelled doom for the LIA.   In the late 80's to mid 90's, the LIA fell into disuse and was eventually delegated to being used as a flea market.  It held on a few more years thereafter, but at around the millennium, it closed down for good and was torn down. 

 

Yes, I am not feeling the F12-4H at all.  It is pretty Yougly if you ask me.  It looks like something that a layman would knock together in a single weekend with home tools in a garage.  Granted it does boil down to how the speaker performs.   But I know if I would present that for a party, people are just going to say, "What the hell is that?"   Now the X-15?  Oh my!  That is a sheer work of art.  Beautiful cabinet.  If you ask me, I think that is nicer looking than a Klipsch La-Scala.

 

The thing is that with my experience with Fraziers is pretty much the Super Texans.  I have SEEN other Frazier speakers before, but not heard them.   I know they made large column speakers for churches and mostly PA work too.  

 

Now, you mentioned that you worked for Frazier and I am assuming you heard all the speakers they made, correct?   How IS the sound on the Dixielander?   I know the frequency response is limited on the high and low ends.   But is it a nice full sound?   As it is, I am an older fellow myself and I doubt my hearing is any good above 15k anyway, which is the roll off point on the Dixielander.  But I am concerned about the low end.  How is the bass response, specifically if the speaker is used outside?  

 

Thanks,

D

Yeah that reasoning does sound sound. Electrical issues, audience, and maybe type of song vs. acoustics.

Same issue in D/FW as the LIA experienced, miss some of those old venues.

 

Well the F12-4H is a ceiling speaker so wasn't intended for viewing pleasure. We did doll some up special order for certain customers - various colors and matching cloth grilles. Roller skating rinks, discos, theaters, etc. And then the Model Nine internally code-named the Disco Big Eye.
Yeah the X-15 had an interesting look for a commercial speaker. They packed the curvy horn sections with sawdust and covered with a thin piece of wood. I puttied and sanded my share of them, had to be a little artful with the horn part. The top part could be fitted to a couple of options of radial horns depending on the desired dispersement. Some just ordered it as a woofer-only (X-15W) and used an external HF horn.

 

Well yes and no on the listening question. Most were just simple-sound tested at low volume not to upset the office, etc. And one at a time and usually what the foreman wanted the radio tuned to (sappy music). Plus we're listening close to each driver and testing the controls. I never had the pleasure to 'really' listen to a pair of Dixies but what I remember is pretty good for a horn. I do have a pair of horns that are somewhat close to a Dixie 'in a sense' [unfolded] and have the same HF horn in the mouth of the big horn; I was the audio king of the lake beach when I toted them out there in my truck at the time, everybody loved them (even the boaters) and of course they did well vs. the wind. And using a low power car stereo. Now these guys that actually own (or previously owned) them could give you a better review. But a big plus for the Dixie is that Jack Frazier had a pair in those fancy coverall cabinets in his living room.

I did get to visit the sound room every now and then but it was pretty much for all the home models.

 

Regular gas is about $1.60/gal here. And it's gone up 20 cents or more since stuff started reopening and continues to climb...

For anyone needing repairs, this company who sells woofers for guitarists also will work on older Frazier stuff. No affiliation, but stumbled onto their site. I don't do facebook, so if anyone want to pass along the info...

 

The make woofers with hemp cones...
