  • Aiwa Speaker Replacement

    My uncle has a small Aiwa stereo that needs new speakers (2.0 system). It is only used to listen to Country music in a small living room and attached dining room. Current speakers are 40 watt 8 ohm Aiwa. I am planning to build replacements for him and I was thinking the Classix II MT Bookshelf Speaker Kit Part # 300-7112.

    Would this be a good replacement/upgrade? Any other suggestions more suitable?

    Yes, they would as well as the c note kit.

      If the price difference was not a concern, which one would you guys do: C-notes or Classix?

        My thought is not a lot of deep bass in country, plus a trim ring over a gasket, my lean would be the c-notes

          Hello

          You've quoted the speaker rating, but what's the RMS output of the amp/receiver, please? You may need to go for a more efficient speaker if this figure is low-ish. The C-notes and Classix II are 85dB and 86bB respectively, I think. Typically the old Aiwa units (we used to have an all-in one Aiwa with a cassette and turntable, that tells you how old it was) were 10-20 watts RMS per channel.

          I haven't heard the C-notes but love the Classix II, which I run from a Dayton DTA-120: it's rated at 40 RMS p/ch into 8ohms". This provides enough volume for my workshop but when I tried the setup in a larger room it had some problems with bass when I pushed the volume.

          Just a thought

            I don't know anything about the receiver other than it came with those speakers. I can always find another receiver or amp for him, I might even have something laying around I can give him.

              IMO - C-Notes for Bluegrass maybe, but Classix for Country. The Classix ARE a bit larger.
