I'm looking for any info for a Pair Of 130AS (not 130a's) Foilcals Have 130AS on them. Thx

Here's what i have:

2 15" 130AS

Serial numbers 10223 & 10225 (one with stock box)

Foilcals say 130AS with serial number & 8 ohm

Reconed with 2220H kit, kits are
stamped Sept 21, 1984
stamped 58057
Handwritten 5/3/85
Handwritten 2220H

Both speakers have aluminum cap.

So, what is a 130as?

thx, bill

Hi Bill

I am not sure if I found the real low down on the "130AS" or not.
But, they could be a "Sunn" version of the "130A" and were used in their Coliseum PA system.

Here is a link to some very fun reading:

But, since your drivers have been re-coned; you really have to think of them acoustically as 2220H drivers now.

Thanks for the info. I believe you are correct. I have seen the D130S in Sunns before, so it makes logical since, that the 130AS were 130A's for Sunn. I only can assume that the Sunn version also had a paper dust cap. Since they are reconed with the 2220H cones and have aluminum caps I'm treating these as D130/2220H recones. I haven't put a guitar through them for sound, but they do sound like D130's now in C36 cabs. Thanks again, Bill
