Post up some pics over at Audio Karma, someone other there will probably be able to help you out.

Those look like late 60's vintage.  As for who...no clue.

I'm very happy with them, I love their sound even if the soundstage is a bit lacking. Any idea how I can find out? Thanks =)

 

EDIT: I bought them used from a store. I have no idea how many previous owners they had.

 

Nevermind.  Just saw that you posted photos.  :)

Hello again, hope I'm not being a nuisance here

I would really appreciate help identifying my battered and beloved old speakers, having bought them used based on budget and sound, and the shop I bought them from has been closed for a while now.

 

Here's what one looks like

 

 

 

 

So.... Any one have a clue who made these, and when?

They look sort of like the old Utahs.

 

I'm into Celestions,(Sl6 SI's), and vintage Polks.

 

I remember seeing something like your photos at a buddie's house, he resurrected them from a basement and cleaned them up, they were Utahs.

Late 60's early to mid 70's speakers... lot of them had that fabric screen on them. I think some of the old Pioneer speakers used that cover too.

 

 

 

Nothing inside them to give you a clue?

The back is nailed down, and I'm afraid to remove the screen for fear I won't be able to put it back frown.gif

 

EDIT: If this is any help, the tweeters are on the upper left hand corner and are 6cm (~2.5 inches) wide including the fitting hole. The mid-conehas a 13.5 cm (~5.5 inches) diameter fitting hole and is on the right, slightly higher than the middle, and the hole for the bass driver is approx 27cm (~11 inches) across. The bass cone itself has got a whole bunch of holes in the middle of the dust cap, which has metal ring around it (brass I think), the mid-range has a grill dust cap also with a metal ring, and I can't get a good look at the tweeter, seeing how I gleaned this by shining a light through the screen, but the hole for the tweeter is too small to both shine a light, and look.

 

Dimensions: 60x40x22, (~23x15x8.5)

MDF with a "real-wood" cover

Here is a listing on ebay for some vintage Utahs, they have a similar look to them.

Maybe that will help.

 

Good luck.

SPLs have climbed to dangerous levels... (seriously! eek.gif)

 

 

 

 

 

I know, I know. They're supposed to go on the angled stands on the floor. Tried that, and I like these "stands" better biggrin.gif. Spinning Dire Straits - "Love Over Gold" at the moment. If I turn the volume up more than halfway, they'll probably blow the windows out.
