Looking for old Magnavox speaker
« on: March 22, 2014, 12:44:39 AM »
Good Morning.  My most recent Magnavox console score has a bad 15" woofer.  If anyone has one laying around from a recent pull let me know, otherwise the beautiful thing will be gutted and... well you know the rest.  See the pics for more info.  I would like to save it though as it is one of the nicer ones from 1962. 

Thanks,

Dicky

How funny.   I pulled a pair and one was bad.   I said to myself "I should keep this just in case".   I hope to make it up to the shop tonight to test some tubes.   Should I drop it off there or do you want to come get it?

Depends where you are, but I can definitely make it to the shop later.  Need any more tubes?

It looks identical, but the codes are different...

I live in Penn Hills.   As far as needing tubes, I'll know more about that tonight.

I think I joined that magnavox group last night.  Probably don't need to post as I had a great turnout here.  Thanks again all!

Dicky, I expect to be there 6-ish.   I don't do the late night thing like some folks.

I may be able to put those to use if Dicky doesn't want them.   I have a few more horn pulls than I do ALNICO woofer pulls.

Google gave me nothing.   I assume they are old ALNICOs, yes?
