Need a few 10" alnico speakers
« on: February 18, 2018, 10:53:31 AM »
Looking to put back together a couple maggies and need some 10" alnico speakers.
Don't have to be Magnavox brand, but let me know what you have.
Prefer alnicos but would consider ceramics.

thanks

Last month Parts Express had 10" rubber-surround speakers on sale @ $15 (ceramics).  I bought a couple to restuff the Heathkit console.  Seemed like a good price and they don't have failure-prone foam surrounds.  I haven't heard them yet but they look good.  I could send a photo (kinda odd way to audition speakers, looking at a picture, no?).

Thanks, ideally i'd like something original.

I'm sure i can find something new that would work, just not the avenue i'm going down at this point.

My theory on the Heathkit console was that the speakers had to be somewhat related in price to the cost of the console free, a curbside find). I need to diagnose the channel that doesn't work and get a new stylus for the Shure cartridge and make new backs for the speaker enclosures.  But first I would need to extract it from the garage, WAAAAYYY back there beyond the V-M 566-B console  and the iceboat and a couple bicycles hanging like bats from the roof trusses.  Some day.  But basically, for a free console, the first priority is making it work and being faithful to authenticity requirements is secondary.  Then there is the challenge of finding a place for it to sit and play.  These toys sure take a ot of space....

I have a pair of mint condition 10" AlNiCo speakers out of a working 1961? Maggie console.

Printed on each of the magnets is:

MAGNAVOX
581001-1
Made in USA
137 307

Also the pair of 4" speakers and frequency dividing units that came with them.
Everything perfect and working as new.
$25 + shipping for all?
