SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS!!! You won’t find these at Walmart, that’s for sure… Up for grabs is this PAIR of Racon Electric 15 ultra high quality loudspeakers. These are 1940 or before , and as you might know, look like similar Western Electric, Jensen, and RCA units of that period…. it’s a very bastardized industry as far as hardware at that time.. Racon Electric was somehow associated with (Western Electric) those companies, so if one of you guys can enlighten me with more info,,, I’d add it and appreciate the info. This pair was COMPLETELY re-fabricated at PMR in Ohio with all new. / OEM/ AMERICAN made components. Anyhow, they were completely stripped down to the metal.. If it wasn’t iron, it was removed.. EVERYTHING has been replaced from the voice coils, out to the front mounting gaskets, so they are basically new units again, only BETTER! The magnetic gaps were verified with a gauss/flux probe, and measured just fine, so they were PURPOSELY left alone. They were not de-magnetized/re-magnetized and are riding on their original charges. Some people say these old alnico units “sweeten with age”, and after hearing them- I HAVE to agree.. But ya’- new EVERYTHING, and they sound just like they looK! .. These have ultra light weight and responsive HEMPOPOTAMUS hemp fiber cones for a wide range detailed response……. These sound so damned good, your ear drums will reach around, and slap your brains out. Here’s some info. Frames- Steel Magnetic composition- alnico Hook up- spring loaded bare wire terminals Diameter- 15 1/8″ Depth- 9″ Weight- Cans- cast aluminum! Can weight- Cores- alloy/ non-vented Front mounting gaskets- Western Electric cork-rubber composition Surrounds- open weave textile/ non sealed or dampened(virgin) Surround profile- double “M-Roll” Dust Caps- repressed long fiber pulp with fiberglass composition/ lip down 2.5″ Cones- hemp fiber 16 gram Cone profile- straight/smooth Cone depth- >4″ Spider- cupped profile treated textile Litz wires. 040″ diameter Voice Coils- 2″ diameter Coil former- nomex wrapped kapton Coil windings- pure/solid copper SPL- 101 Power- 50watts RMS each Impedance- 8 ohms each Response- 35Hz- 9Khz and THEN into roll-off. That about does it for components descriptions. You guys know what this high end stuff is, and what it’ll sound like. If you need any other specs- just ask. Fellas, I hate to use all of the regular synonyms that people use to describe sound characteristics, but these are so effortless sounding, so pure, so accurate, so’crystal’, that they have a 3D presentation. Quick, high impact, even, smooth accurate, powerful, and inspirational are what I think of with these. Those 16 gram cones allow quick movement of the moving mass, so program material seems lifelike, with great resolution BOTH of these were tested under full diagnostics, and operate without any rubbing, buzzing, holes, rips, tears, rot or adhesive failures- they work just peachy. Fellas,, these are truly awesome, outstanding, tremendous LOUDspeakers… I absolutely love this set.. So, if you need a couple SAVAGE 15 loudspeakers that were in the big 4 from the 40s, then here ya’ go! ANY questions or concerns, just ask.
