Vintage Loudspeakers.

This page lists various speakers and loudspeakers, mostly new old stock from the 50's, 60's and 70's.

All prices are inclusive of GST. I am able to organise freight, if required. Cost varies with destination.

For schools wishing to order, I am able to provide ABN and invoice the school.

I am also able to install these speaker drivers if required. There is an extra charge for this off course, which depends on the time required. Please note that some of these speakers have the slide on connectors, but some, like the Jensen, Rola etc have connectors that require soldering. Soldering this sort of connection is not difficult, but does require a good solder joint as there is a bit of current flowing, and if something comes loose, well, your amp may not appreciate it.



Quad 4 x 12 Speaker Cabinet.

Quad 4 x 12 speaker cabinet Quad 4 x 12 speaker cabinet

This is a second hand cabinet in which I have installed some of my stockpile of speakers. I have been playing around a bit with mixing speakers in a cabinet. This one contains 2 McKenzie 1275GP sepakers and 2 Guya GSG.300509 speakers.

The Mckenzie speakers are brand new, made in England. McKenzie were used in Marshal amps prior to them moving to Celestion. The Guya speakers have had some use, made in Japan, and used in Guyatone equipment. Both speakers I have found to be pretty reasonable. Together this cab, to me, sounds very nice. It's probably not as eficient as a cab with Celestions, but the sound is great.

This cab is made from high grade 11 ply timber. Very well constructed, and is on castors. All speakers are 8 ohm. The cabinet is wired up in 8 ohm.

Price: $400



4 x 10 Guitar Speaker Cabinet

4 x 10 Guitar Speaker Cabinet 4 x 10 Guitar Speaker Cabinet

4 x 10" well made cabinet, lots of dampening inside. I have installed some of my 10 inch speakers, which are a mixture of two PSK (Korean made), one Guyatone (Japanese made)10" and a generic 10" that came from a Laney amplifier. This cab uses a standard 1/4 inch socket. This is an 8 ohm cab, that will handle 120 watts.

I have made the front speaker cover, using plain speaker cloth, and have used screws to attach it, so it's easy to take off to install drivers.

It is also on castors, so easy to move around. Great quad cabinet that is significantly lighter than a 4 x 12 quad.

Price: $250.

4 x 10 Guitar Speaker Cabinet


2 x 12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet

2 x 12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet

This cabinet is half of an old 4 x 12 column. I purchased the column many years ago, and decided to cut it in half some years ago. As such the black tolex covering the bottom part has been added in.

The cab is empty at this time. It is a closed back. I am happy to install any of the 12 inch speakers I have for sale.

Dimensions are 72 cm high, 41 cm wide, and 38 cm deep, and weighs 9.5 kg. I have not attached any rubber feet or a handle as yet, as this cab might be used standing up as shown in the photo, or lying on it's side, which would allow for another cab to be placed on top. I'll attach feet and handle as required by the buyer.

Price $100.

Don't know much about McKenzie speakers, other than they were used in Marshall amps prior to the use of Celestion's, and also used in Torque amps. I imagine that the GP part of the model number means General Purpose. Comes with a speaker grill installed as shown in the photograph.

Guya 12 inch Speakers

Guya 12 inch Speaker Guya 12 inch Speaker

It's not stated on the speaker, but Guya were a Japanese company, and one speaker is labelled as made in Japan. Model number is GSG.300509. Both speakers also have SK2136EL stamped on them.

There are 2 of these available. One is missing the label. Both these speakers had issues with the braids, which were easily repaired by Open Ear Audio. Dick form Open Ear also thought that these looked like Celestions.

They do sound great, and like some sort of Celestion to me.

8 Ohm, and I'm guessing at least 60 watts, by the size and weight of the magnets.

Price $300 for the pair.

Guya 12 inch Speaker




Phillips AD5200PM Twin cone 12 inch Speaker

Twin cone 12 inch Speaker Twin cone 12 inch Speaker

This is an old Phillips twin cone speaker. It is unused. The solder tags have never been soldered on to. Identifiers on the back read "AD5200PM" and "1164AH". On the cone are the "8673/547?" with the last digit there being to much of a smug to read. This seems to be a 15 ohm, judging by the meter reading. Apparently were rated around 20 watts.

I have tested this speaker in a cabinet using a guitar. It a was a real surprise. Sounds absolutely magic! Nice clean top end. Seemed very efficient as well.

Price $400.





Phillips AD12100/M8 Twin cone 12 inch Speakers

Twin cone 12 inch Speaker Twin cone 12 inch Speaker

There are 2 of these available. Phillips twin cone speakers that are quite rare, and sought after by vintage audio enthusiasts.

I have known these speakers since they were new. Purchased by a friend who bought 10 of them back in the early 70's. 8 were used in 2 PA columns. The other 2, these 2, were fitted to another 4 x 12 column that was never used. The PA was used around 5 or 6 times, and thereafter all the speakers sat in the spare room with various other amps and speakers and things. I purchased them all in 1988, and sold the 2 complete columns. I kept these 2 speakers as I liked the sound of them. Used them in a couple of small solo acoustic jobs. They have had very little use, and are in perfect condition. They measure 8 ohm DC resistance.

Price $400 for the pair.

I have tested in a cabinet with a guitar amp and it sounds great, particularly with distortion and turned up a bit.

I don't know it's wattage rating but it is a heavy speaker with a huge magnet. Would have to be around 80 or 100 watts.

Price $100.
