  1. Further Information: Very sad to see these go, they were to be my “end game” speakers and have kept me very happy for 10 years now. The goal was to build good looking speakers that could be driven to realistic levels by an 8W 300B SET amplifier. Clifford from Audio Synergy here in Perth designed these speakers. We built a prototype pair and it took him a further 3 months to fine tune the sound. The two way was built first, the woofers added later, hence different finish. The cabinets for the two way pair were built and the components installed by Karri Acoustics. The woofer pair cabinets were built by a professional cabinetmaker. Two Way: Cabinets 500 w 850 h 300 d Stands 200 h total height 1050mm. The stands are included in the sale, (they cost me $800- to get made) powder coated steel construction and filled with garnet sand. Very heavy and stable!! Can be used without the woofers, has three ports to the bottom refer pic. Constructed using 25mm HDF board with real wood Karri veneer. Drivers- OEM Tang Band W8-1808 8" Neodymium Full Range Driver with wizzer come removed. RAAL 70-10D RAAL Ribbon Tweeter with Amorphous Core Current replacement of these drivers is $1,648- USD + shipping + duties The 8” runs full range with no crossover while the Raal is crossed at 10.5K with a high-quality cap. Frequency range approx. ~50Hz to 30KHz and beyond. Sensitivity approx. 96dB 2.83V/1M Min impedance min 8 Ohm The Woofers: Cabinets 500 w 520 d 600 h Constructed using 18mm Russian Birch ply with 36mm for front baffle. Inside of the cabinets are lined with 3mm copper plate. The external finish is Min Wax. Drivers are Crites (Emminence) CW1526F Steel Frame Woofer – Pair 100 dB/2.83V/1M Current replacement of drivers is $660- USD + shipping + duties Crossover is external as per pics (one inductor) and rolls off at 220 Hz. You can piggyback off the other speakers or run another speaker cable from same amp. In room these go down to about 30 Hz The four cabinets alone have cost me $4,000- and still present as new. These very tube friendly, low power friendly speakers produce an incredibly dynamic, realistic and full sound. Amps beyond 50 Watts probably not suited to these speakers. I am offering these as a package so you can get the full bandwidth, but I may split subject to negotiation. The woofers would suit someone looking to build a horn system as the crossovers can be changed very easily. Prefer local sale so you can demo with your amp and make sure you are happy. No shipping boxes are available, and these are each very heavy, for any interstate interest, I am prepared to deliver to pack and send at your risk and for your organization. Speakers like these do not come up very often. These are incredible for the asking price and I am sure a demo will convince you and help you get the best out of your SET or even First Watt type amp. Please refer the comments from previous listings to get an idea what they sound like from local folks that have heard them. I have had to spend substantially more than this asking price to "potentially" better these. Happy to answer any questions by PM and happy to demo with my 300B SET or bring your own amp.
