Electro-Voice EV-SIX Speakers
« on: February 01, 2012, 09:44:44 PM »
I had these in my 30x50 hobby shop for the last 25+ years. I cleaned the cabinets and blew the dust off them. I had intentions of selling them but after a listening I just don't know. I would like to find more info on them(year made,find a manual,and what they are worth) I used a Proton 940 reciever to drive them and WOW!!! ,they sound Great... Anybody had any experience with them?

Look great!! I bet they sound just as good!!
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

(I know an old thread but doubt worth a new one)

Had these speakers for several years, and they do have great sound.
Maybe not the last word in resolving sound, but an effortless smooth sound, with deep bass that is literally house shaking.
Far too big for many rooms, but put many new speakers to shame.
Not many that have a similar sound.

Mid 60's.
18" woofer
8" mid bass
4X10 mid horn
T35 tweeter
No real manual other than the stuff stuck to back panel of speaker, assuming yours is intact still.


Value, hard to determine, but some people cherish these, hard to find now.

I know I enjoy the T-35 tweeter in my Heresys.
