Good work Doc. You can never have too many speakers....that's why Mrs Brumjam so enjoyed having two pairs of horn speakers in the house at the same time** caution: there's a small lie in this last sentence
Good effort !
Stone the crows Ben, you're going to need a bigger house at this rate! Those Glendales look to be in nice condition. If you're collecting, I may have a set of refurbed Wharfedale E70s available soon
So what to they sound like Ben?
Righto.Picked them up this morning.
Cosmetic condition is fine.
Plugged into my friend's Sony mini system they sound promising. Unfortunately one of the tweeters is gone.
So I'm going to need to find an original replacement for that tweeter, or try to find modern alternatives...
Tbh, I'm not that bothered. Less than I would have thought I'd be. I'm quite enjoying the idea of a bit of a project...
Any tweeter thoughts...? (E.g. if I go for newer ones, how do I know what spec to go for...?)
My back-stop plan is throw them at Paul RFC, but it'd be nice (/ fool-hardy) to try something myself. :-)
If your in London, why don't you fly by Sovereign Towers!
Take out the healthy tweeter and send it to me Ben and I'll test it and see if I can recommend a modern alternative for you. You'd be lucky to get any drop in replacement that would avoid crossover mods though...If you already know their nominal impedance and sensitivity I may be able to recommend something that gets you close though.
Have you a close up of the solder burn? :P They may not be an identical match for the crossover Ben but they may not be far off either so probably best to leave the x-over well alone if they sound ok to you
Buy it Ben. The kit is rare as hens teeth unused like that.
