FS - PA Speakers

Post by chris661 » Wed Sep 20, 2017 10:59 pm

Hi gents,

Recently picked up a job lot of speakers that I've been working through, getting them working as needed etc. They're mostly ready to sell on now.

They're ex-nightclub, but I'm cleaning them up so they look as new as possible. All MDF cabinets painted grey.

Here's what I've got:
4x 12" + compression driver cabinets. Standard 2-way ported box. They actually sound pretty decent, with a nice crossover featuring air-cored inductors and poly caps. The midbass driver has a 3" voicecoil and a cast frame. Compression driver has a 2" voicecoil, and a constant directivity horn. Both components appear to be made by Beyma.
High efficiency and good power handling, as you'd expect from PA speakers.

7x 8" + tweeter cabinets. Good quality crossover, like the 12"s. The tweeters are those little poly dome ones, but these sound surprisingly good.
1x 8" + tweeter. This one has a different midbass driver, which feels extremely compliant. I'd be happy to get rid of that one for free, included in a sale of any of the other speakers.

You can find the datasheet here: http://www.alfaaudio.com.mk/ShowProduct ... &c=20&l=54

I'll be taking a measurement mic to them and pairing them up where possible, and will post up some graphs when I can. After a cursory listen, I expect them to look pretty good.

I'll be on holiday next week, so won't be able to reply for a little while, but send me an offer and lets see what we can work out.

Cheers all,
Chris

Here are some pictures of what you're getting. http://www.grimshawaudio.com/ecler-speakers

If anyone's interested in just the drivers, it might be possible to work something out. I can also measure the T/S parameters for you.

I took the measurement mic to them, and they both showed a similar curve, with a dip from 1-2.5kHz, which gives a fairly "relaxed" presentation. The 8"s stop at 80Hz, and appear to be voiced so they're good when up against a wall - they sound a little thin brought out into the room. The 12"s sound pretty good either way, while going flat down to 60Hz.
They're all high-sensitivity designs, with the 8"s rated for 93dB and the 12"s rated for 98dB. Great for low-power amplifiers.

A couple of the 8" cabs have tweeters with square faceplates. I assume those have been replaced at some point, but they sound fine either way.

Looking for around £40 each for the 8" ones, and more like £75 each for the 12"s. Happy to come down on price for multiples.
When I'm back from holidays I'll post some pictures of the drivers themselves.

If you can see the cone move regularly, you haven't got enough speaker.
