The Design

In the seventies it was very common to have a stereo set consisting of separate units, and connect it to a pair of speakers like this one. Cheap sets had loudspeakers that were just one speaker in a (usually wood) box, but the more expensive types had separate bass and treble speakers and an electric tone separation filter.

Sound samplePLAY SOUND   Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds was re-recorded in Dutch by the Veronica Broadcasting Company, and it was played on the radio for the first time on November 18, 2005.

This Object

Inside picture shows the two speakers and the coils. Philips used quite strong and big magnets for the speakers, and the sound is correspondingly good.

I bought these for my Philips Capella, later used them with my HK195 mini amp, and after that with my Truck Amp.
