Vintage Speaker score July 24 2012, 0 Comments

One day I hope to cover one entire wall of my basement with a huge stack of vintage speakers.  A friend of mine was selling a pair of Large Advents, and he threw in a pair of speakers that had been his dad's from way back.  The grill grille(?) was permanently attached, so I didn't know what I was looking at until I got the back off.

Check out these beauties.  They are University 312s - a "diffaxial" 12" speaker similar to some of the old Altecs.  Basically a little horn tweeter that sits where the woofer's dustcap would usually be. I can't wait to try them out with a low power tube amp.  They are supposed to be very efficient.  I have been lazy lately and just listening to Pandora so this will be a good excuse to spin some vinyl again.
