ID the vintage unbranded speaker
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:42:46 PM »
I know very little a our these.
Was told by the guy I bought them from that they came in with a system from Germany. No markings anywhere.
These for their age and size sound quite good and seem to be quite sensitive as well. Tweeter is a paper cone one.
Can anyone ID this ?

Absolutely right KJS, the little LF unit is Isophon, most certainly also hf unit, brand of box could also be Isophon but not likely, do You know the brand of the system it was imported with?

Thanks guys. I don't know much about the system , only that it came of from Germany when someone moved to SA. I paid about R200 for the pair , wasn't expecting much but I really listened to them properly the other day for the 1st time and they are reasonably good on a 10w pch little pioneer mini system playing a CD. Sound better on that than they did I'm our old wharfedale denton amp.
I have no knowledge of this brand or it's history but now that I atleast have a name , I can narrow it down a bit more.

I have speaker boxes exactly like those...came with a Philips portable turntable set from the mid 60's. Will peek inside them n see if they hiding some Isophons. Also have some 7"x12" Isophon drivers...looks like they built very well, and..... :facepalm:.... another 3way 16ohm set of the prepared baffle setup offered by Isophon back then. I cannot complain.
