These speakers were one of Gordon's (Ozcall) most recent projects before he died.

From his thread on the restoration:

"As you can see from the pictures they are a very unusal box speaker being only a few inches deep but rather wide. I have completely rebuilt all the crossovers with Mundorf axial e-caps and Jantzen resistors and the internal cabling is Jantzen solid core which I have found to work very well with older speakers.

The tweeters were tested for continuity and both work just fine so I ordered u[ the complete refoam kit for all the cone drivers. I finished electical and mechanical restoration the other day and now have a good few hours worth of listening time with them.

I like what I am hearing , warmish ,coherent and with great bass , they image surprisingly well given the wide cabinets."

 

"Popped the speakers in to the main system and am quite astonished by the results. These will no longer be going up for sale but there maybe a pair of Gale 401a's and a pair of AR91's being listed in the not to distant future."

Gordon's partner, Steven, can also attest to just how good these speakers sounded in the main system.

Black grill cloths included.

Speaker specs: now added as a pic.

Thanks Sean - are you or Wolster managing the sale? I would like to talk over valve or SS amplifier and power requirements if someone could help. 
Regards

John

John, I have now added the specs as a pic above. They are rated 4 ohms.  I hope that helps.
