SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS!! Up for grabs is probably the ULTIMATE In an 8 GUITAR speaker. This model is one of several models that we will now be offering, based around the seemingly unbeatable sound of the Western Electric/Altec Lansing 755 speaker paper cone.. They will be for Hi-Fi, musical instruments, and even PA use models.. If you need clean channel/ amplified acoustic guitar in it’s purist form, this is the one to play/record with.. If you LOVE detailed over drive, you can close your eyes, and in your head you can almost envision the shape of the complex incoming wave forms. These things have “CRUNCH”… More than the Captain ever offered’…. The 755 cone, has been a leader for DECADES as far as providing a transparent, detailed, fairly wide range sound… Some models with this cone command a hefty 3 grand! It uses a special blend of special pulps, binding agents, kapok, and felts(seems strange right), to get an inherent dampening ability to suppress “ringing” , pulse hangover, and phantom notes from the cone material ringing.. A tonality that is compatible to the G5 hemp formulations. This tonality starts and’stops fast. Very fast impulse response, transient capabilities, detail, presence,’believability’, and 3D presentation.. Even the core of the motor structure has been machined out, to allow a packing of fiber glass to absorb any sound reflected behind the cone/cap area! . The devil is in the details, and this one is possessed. If you want to hear the instrument and/or the amp, THIS is the speaker to go with.. This is the new “guitar version” with the molded in dust cap removed, and a Celestion acoustically transparent/open weave dust cap used to let out just the right amount of midrange and top end directly out of the coil/core area.. Other models will include the 1 piece integrated cone and cap.. Others will have the cloth surround. I can also offer a hi fi version with a butylene rubber surround for the ultimate hi-fi version of this speaker.. Here’s some good info: Frame- stamped steel magnetic composition- anisotropic samarium cobalt slurry Hook up- standard spade terminals Core- vented/machined hollow Spider- treated tyextile/ high compliance Voice Coil- Kraft paper wrapped kapton Coil Diameter 2 Core- machined out/ packed with fiber glass Windings- pure copper/short winding height like OEM/ fine wire for more turns Cone- Altec 755 Profile- curve-linear Body- smooth, but with the twin rib stiffeners Surround- all paper Dust Cap- open weave textile response- 50-12.5KHz Power-50 watts RMS (conservatively) Impedance-16 ohms SPL- 94dB That’ll give you guys a good idea how they are built, and what they sound like. You guys know what this stuff is.. So, if you’ve tried everything else without satisfaction, you just want to get the best right off the top, or you are just curious and need a KILLER speaker for that special combo, then here ya’ go!
