    843A Malibu Questions

    A pair of these fell in my lap today. I'm curious if someone can tell me the difference between the A and B models?

    I wandered around on the lansing site for 1/2 an hour but couldn't find any info on the malibu. Even did a search and got nothing!

    Can you direct me to a website with info on the 843a?

    thanks!

    843A Malibu Questions

    I have a brochure from 1968 that mentions the 843B Malibu.

    "A beautiful, carved grillework-decorated speaker which projects an enormous volume of clean, solid sound and reproduces a wide dynamic range even with medium power amplifiers. Exceptionally fine highs areproduced by the 806A driver mounted on a 811B sectoral horn. A pair of 12" 414A low frequency speakers provides room shaking bass to complete a perfect balance of sound"

    Frequency response: 30-22,000 hz
    Power rating: 30 watts
    Impedance: 8/16 ohms
    Crossover frequency: 800 hz
    Dimensions: 40" H x 25" W x 18" D
    Speaker components: 2-414A, 806A, 811B, N-800G

    The price list showed 417.00 (in walnut), effective march 16, 1968.

    Sorry, I don't know the difference between the 843 A and B models.

    Thanks Don, Great info!

    I think mine must be from a different era. Later possibly ...because of the cane cloth grills and the different drivers. Mine have 414z woofers and 806a drivers.

    Biased

    Hey, we all are. If we all liked the same thing there would only be one speaker system.

    Well maybe three or four at different price points.
