Selling these as is. They are in great shape and I recently made some improvements but tried to keep these as original as possible. These were originally sold as a complete stereo system with stereo all packaged together. This is why these speakers have an RCA jack.

Repairs and improvements

Resealed fabric on surrounds for both speakers
Replaced fiberglass insulation with natural cotton insulation
Rebuilt crossovers using audio grade capacitors
Fixed one speaker woofer with a failed/burned coil

Notes
the fabric speaker grills are in amazing condition very clean.
The speaker cabinets are solid, they have some scratches and one speaker has a corner that has a chip. Rather than sand these down and refinish. I tried to keep them as is. They still look great even though they were made in the late 60s

Sound quality
For their age and sound design I give these 5/5 for the era they were made.
They do not produce strong bass, but they do produce excellent highs and mids. I tested these speakers after rebuilding the crossovers with late 50’s Jazz and these speakers came to life.

I drove them up as loud as my ears could handle and they did not distort. I highly recommended pairing these with vintage or era matching receiver.

The RCA speaker jack is not a problem, I’ll throw in some adapter to covert back to 2 wire speaker cables.

Power output: 40 watts per channel into 8Ω
Year: 1966
