SOLD: FS: [ADL] SPENDOR BC1 Speakers

Recommended Posts

Item: Sequentially serial numbered pair of Spendor BC1 speakers.
Location: Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
Price: $800
Item Condition: Good for their age. When I had a look at them I noticed that the grills had been put on upside down (from new the owner tells me). I took off the grills for the pictures and when I put them back on the correct way up and rotated the speakers I noticed that all the scratches that would have been on the bottom for the last x number of years were now on the top. The buyer can either refinish the top, or turn them back upside down as the underside only has a few small marks. The drivers are all in 100% original condition and I could not see any degradation to the rubber surrounds on any of the cones. I have plenty of pictures for anyone really interested. We plugged them in and they sounded really good, no signs of any distortion and honestly sound a lot better than more modern speakers I have sold for more money.
Reason for selling: Selling on behalf of a family member who has owned them from new. They come with the original instruction manual!
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Great sounding set. For those who know what these speakers are, no additional explanation is required. Audition can be arranged for anyone in SA. The owner would be very unlikely to ship these interstate - no original boxes.

There were a few models of JBL studio monitors with the tweeters at the bottom, designed to to be mounted in the top corners of the studio, the speaker angled with the tweeter aimed at ear level, maybe these were intended on being used the same? 

 

I think they are very cool and bet they sound great

 

edit: just did some web surfing, I'm probably wrong as most people think they sound best a few feet off the wall

Thanks for the feedback powerglide. I'm 100% sure the grills were up the wrong way on these as the plaque on the back with the serial numbers was inverted to the Spendor labels on the grill. 

 

Interesting about this JBL monitors none the less.
