Picked up some monster vintage PA speakers
#1
The block going to love me now " or hate i mean" hehe Picked up these from my band mates music store..He got them on trade in, had a hard time looking them up..He runing out of space too.he has mountains of equipment allready..So i made a offer and now here they sit..lol..From what i been told they are some of the best from the time period for horned woofers and hard to find...I had to join a audio forum just to find anything out about them...They told me better than JBL's at the time and twice as hard to find..They rarely see them unmolested like these...Only minor scuffs over all .. I'm thinkin about monster home stereo..lol..or nastalgic pa i can use with the band if ours ever goes tits up, and private parties " and still home stereo " hehe

Some one put some tape on the side as grafics on the tweets....Guessing during the 80's crazy van halen or some type for a show..They have consecutive serial numbers too..They all 1 number off eachother. So it is a matching set rolled off the factory line at the same time. interesting..Some guy had them in a apartment and they was too big for what he needed...Still got to clean them up, just got them home..lol

There is a story about a old dude that rang the cops to complain about a Motorhead gig being too loud. He said his tv had maxed out the volume and he still couldn't hear it 3 miles from the venue lol. Your neighbour's will love it Big Grin

PS. I dare you to hook them to the door bell hehe.

Mike, I'll send you $11 to do that, if you post the video on this site or link to YouTube. Come to think of it, I may do that myself with my floor wedges. Devilish idea, now that I'm thinking about the garage door opener, which is more readily accessible!

What brand are they? I can't make it out on my crappy screen!

Definitely look like they will jam! When I was a DJ many moons ago, my partners and I bought some giant speakers from a band supply house in Pittsburgh...turns out they were part of the gear used on AC/DC's Highway to Hell Tour! Man, did they jam!

Well..I got some subs i can borrow for now ...Our band has four 18 inch woofers...I'll have to look for a good power amp for them...i found out today the tweeter boxes can handle up too 650 watts a peice..lol...woofers are SRO..Kick arse speaker for its time...they run at about 300 watts a peice...sooo to push just this set to its max will take around a 2000 watt amp...add sub woofer ill be up too 2500 watt mark. Not too shabby for a 1970's set up Smile

They are made by Kustom. They are best know for there Tuck-And-Roll amps ...They known for making made high end stuff at the time " not so much now" They got junked in the late 80's...I am thinking these mite of come from some big band.." or some band that went no were"..They are a macthing set..Meaning they was bout at the time with amps and everything..No watts marked out on the cabs, guess cause they expected you to run the package that was sold to you. CCR was known for runing alot of Kustom stuff on stage..They said during the 70's they had to carry all there own amps and such..most places had horrible sound systems and make them sound bad...Later on the home systems got better at the gigs..So too save money..Most stopped carrying all there own PA by the 80's...Speakers like these ended up in storage rooms or getting beat up in little bar bands..lol

according to some this set i got come from around mid 70's...the information on them online is piss poor.

Wow ... that looks COOL talk'n OLD SCHOOL

Im pretty dumb in the music field ...I would look like Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein trying to sing, dance or play. So do you recall a brand back in the 70's called Sur Vocal Master??? my friend back then lived in a posh area and lived across the street from a big wig at WSM who at that time owned the Grand Ole Opry Park. When it flooded he gave Mike some bad azz speakers and a bunch of Marantz stuff to push them FOR FREE!!! it WAS the party house and let it be known I was NOT there when THE BIG PARTY took place.
