Strength:

in 1976 i didn'd hear anything that came close for the price!

Weakness:

there getting old now and in need of some attention

after 30+ years i can still impress myself with the quality of sound that comes out of these speakers!i have never heard any bose's but i belive the work on the same principle it fills the room!i have bought other speakers over the years but i know they can hever compare

Similar Products Used: i've heard some jbl's 500 that thought where good but there more of a loud speaker.

Purchased these speakers in 1982 for 1250.00, they were reduced from 1750 due to the fact that Phase Linear became stereo history. Tweeter is ribbon with responce up to 120khz with efficiency of 96.5dB (SPL/W at 1-meter distance).Mid-Range is a dome-shaped driver with dual suspension system utilizing a pure beryllium diaphragm held by wire suspension and tangential suspension. Woofer is 15 inch dia. with usable reponce down to lowest octave, magnet is 8 inch dia. ferrite. Network can be by-passed for tri-amp config. and encloser is made of Apitong veneer board. The reason for this review is to see if any of these are still around. The weight is 103lbs each, freg range is 28-120,000hz, Bass reflex type. They still sound great. Took the plaster off an upstairs bedroom ceiling (had to sheetrock room anyway). Just added a sub to go down below 20HZ without having to crank it too much (18" velo). I've gone to places in NY City that demo the high end stuff and have found that speakers with price tags above the 3000 range sound better. If anyone out in net-land has these I would like to hear from you! (will be needing refoaming soon, no problem, lots of places do that, will just go to bi-amp config. and re-adjust the velodyne x-over).

Actually I was looking into buying a pair of these speakers used. I don't know the model number but they are 63" tall by 24" wide and 5" deep. Maybe you can shed some light on the situation for me.
