  • Free Speaker Components Treasure Trove - Cincinnati

    I need the storage space and am finally admitting to myself that I’m not going to build speakers anymore so have a number of items that I’ll give to an active DIY’er. Local Pickup only in West Chester OH (North Cincinnati). If you want this trove you have to take all of it, I don’t want to deal with it one item at a time. Also I need to believe you'll use the parts and not just wanting to resell.
    PM me if interested.

    Here’s the list:
    2 Heil Air Motion Transformers from the early 70’s when they first came out. These are the large, heavy dipole units and have the original diaphragms as well as newer spares never used.
    Crossover point for these was as low as 750Hz in the ESS AMT1 and AMT3 speakers and 1K for higher power applications. A true piece of Loudspeaker History. Nearly resistive impedance makes for easy crossover work.

    All drivers below are new , in box, never used

    Usher Drivers:
    2 pieces T9950 tweeters, and 4 pieces 8944a carbon fiber cone midwoofers
    With article on Joe D’Appolito design with these drivers for Usher 737 ( includes xover schematic)
    High Quality Crossover components including the one’s needed to make the D’Appolito designed crossover for the Usher drivers

    Creative Sound Solutions: 4 pieces WR125 “full range” drivers

    Subwoofer Components:
    Stryke Audio (now Acoustic Elegance)
    2 15” Aluminum Cone Passive Radiators
    12” Aluminum Cone Subwoofer
    PE 1000 Watt Subwoofer Plate Amplifier - new
    Partially completed cabinet for these drivers and amplifier

    Misc Cabinet parts , spikes, termination cups, 2 - 4” Precision Port tubes
    Misc other small drivers, Speaker Builder Magazines from the 90’s , D'Appolito Testing Loudspeakers Book

    Measurement mic, Signal generator ,Frequency Counter and Oscilloscope
    Also available partly completed veneered cabinet panels and makore veneer

      Can I trade you my wife with shipping for the ESS parts , she cleans and cooks well and is a go getter. I'm sure she will land a job within 24 hrs.

        I certainly can and would use the Heils, but not much else. As far as the wife, does she do windows?
