ive been browsing around the bay. see what my kits are worth.
i was noticing the that there is a 16 ohm and 8 ohm version. i also noticed that there is also black and grey versions.

are the different colors indicitive of age or the ohms?
is there a difference in value of the 16 ohm and 8 ohm versions?
thanks,
steve

Searching this forum will answer why.

I guess that means the Columbus, Ohio area has at least 2 pairs of D123's!

Mine and yours.

Mine are installed in GE vintage "1959" styled cabinets with the "Distributed Port System" (basically a dozen 1" holes drilled in the baffle board below the 075 and D123 drivers.

I paid $600.00 a pair for mne since they are in mint condition. They have the JBL 2400(2600???)hz crossovers in them. They sound nice, not "High-end", but nice none-the-less.

What are you running yours in?

i was vanaman but i dont have that email and lost all the info for that account.

The dimenstions are3 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2. The drivers are D123 and le20 tweeters. the crossover is the lx2. They also have a weird Porrt design. It is a 12 port(hole) design. They are 1960's i believe.
