    hmm

    Is that a 70v line transformer or a field coil?

    very interesting looking old speakers! Never heard of these before, but on one of the other sites about other vintage speaker brands; i.e. jensen, Stephens, etc, I saw an RCA woofer with cutouts similar to the ones your cone has!

    Do they work?

    Scott,the box is a crossover,from what I can see this one will not work,the voice coil wire is coming out of the gap,I didnt test the comp.driver,but I'm sure it's fryed too,I just picked up a lot of old radio parts and found a few speakers in the lot,once I get a chance I well post the other onces as well,I did find one that was still in the shipping crate,but no brand label,it is a field coil and weighs about 50lbs,I think its 8or10"

    Its cool to just tinker with these old items and find out what they had all those years ago.

    Stentorian 12"

    Hi, just a follow up to an old post i just read... I picked up a couple Stentorians in great shape and sound fabulous for their age. They've got the cool clear cap on the back and weigh a ton. If anyone has any info or wants to see a few shots of these ones, let me know. Thanks, Greg
