  2. Item: Scanspeak branded vintage bookshelf speaker pair. Location: Keysborough VIC 3173 Price: $150. Pickup only. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Here i have a pair of vintage Scanspeak branded largeish bookshelf speakers locally produced here in Melbourne I think. They are all original 2 way, and have all Vifa drivers. 6.5 inch woofer, and 3/4 inch tweeter per enclosure. The foam lining on the slightly slant front baffles deteriorated, so I renewed it. You can see a pic of the drivers. Crossovers are of good quality with large air core inductors. Overall decent sounding speakers with good imaging, and solid enclosures. Rear banana plug connections only with retro fully sock grilles. Sound good on lower stands about 450-500 high, as they beam up nicely. No model number indicated. Sizes: 500H x 270W x 200D. Photos:

  6. Item: AUDAX 2 way bookshelf DIY speaker pair. Lead lined enclosures. Location: Keysborough VIC 3173 Price: SOLD. Item Condition: Excellent. Reason for selling: Too many speakers. No room. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I constructed these a couple of years ago using 6.5" AUDAX woofers and 34mm Audax silk dome tweeters. The cabinets are professionally adapted refurbished, and very heavy construction by John at Aranmar Acoustics. (John is the guru of good speaker enclosures) The design comes from an Italian origin as shown in the link, and they did a beautiful job of the crossover design. Very airy and accurate sound using these excellent Audax drivers. Midrange is especially good. These cost me more in parts than my asking price, and a lot of labor of love. Audition welcome for serious SNAers only. This is a no grille design. Cabinet sizes: 240W x 320D x 420H. Construction and design here: http://www2.audiokit.it/ITAENG/KitDiffusori/2vie/RES/Chantal.htm I am a knowledgeable speaker hobbyist, and certainly know what I'm doing.
