Further information:

A pair of Whatmough Signature 303 floorstanding speakers. 

The build quality, internal bracing is great and overall finish is 8/10.   Grills are in almost excellent condition.

These speakers feature the French made Audax woofers and Scan Speak Revelator D2905/990000 tweeters.
These produce plenty of bass.  They have an externally mounted crossover network to minimise interference and unwanted distortion.

Lead lined speaker enclosures finished in Bubinga real wood veneer extremely heavy with each speaker approximately 50 kgs each.

Full disclosure:
I am second owner (purchased 2008) the original owner had crossover tweaked to reduce brightness, unfortunately I dont have any other details.
The top 2 drivers (HM170Z18) were replaced in Sept 2019 @ $330 AUD (shipped from France and are identical driver to originals).
Tweeters are original and run perfectly
1 of the bottom mid/bass driver has distortion at medium volume levels - once this was released I didn't go through process of replacing them like the other 2. 

As such the new drivers have only had 10 hours use (max).

These would probably suite a audiophile wanting a hobby to replace driver(s), clean up & enjoy.

Will not ship due to weight.

       In excellent condition a pair of Australian Whatmough C11 bookshelf speakers - refer to photos.
      2 - way speaker, silk dome tweeter with 6.5inch woofer - front reflex port.
      Finish is a beautiful real wood veneer - Burnt Cherry.
      Sensitivity: 87db.
       
      Grills in perfect condition, I've been running these in Bi-Wire but will require jumper cables if not bi-wiring.
      In general a very relaxing, smooth listen with a fairly neutral response, paired very well with a Marantz PM-17 amplifier.
       
      A great testament to the work of local Colin Whatmough.
       
      *Attached screen shot of  measured frequency response in my own room for reference - measured with a Blue Snowball MIC and REW.

      I purchased these used in 2017 and these have been the longest speakers I have kept. They have seen off many other speakers, floor standers may have more bass and output but these just sound right to me.
      It’s a sealed box so there isn’t much bass but what it has is GREAT.
      These love a bit of power to make them sing….. Lots of power.
      These sounded best with Naksa 70 & B&O ICE 125ASX2  an amp with lots of bass control.
       
      For a while I had these speakers at work in a large warehouse and mini Topping class D Tripath amp and it wasn’t too bad even with these tiny bass drivers.
       
       
      It is the Whatmough house sound in a tiny package.  These sound good on stands over putting them on a side table or shelf.
       
      2 way sealed enclosure using 140cm bass driver
      25mm soft dome tweeter
      Efficiency: 85dB input level 2.83v - 1watt into 8ohms
      65Hz to 20kHz +/- 3dB
      300H x 185W x 180D
      6kg
      Finish: Burnt Cherry (?)
      mounting bracket on back
       
      There are a few marks on the speakers nothing major.
       
       
       
      60cms Stands I had made in 2018 by Anthony (Grizzly) they cost me around $330 I think (could be more)
      Perfect for these speakers and LS3/5a size speakers
      has spikes and floor disc. These work well on hard floors. For carpet a heavy weight on the bottom of the stands will keep it balanced. I used books or LPs.
       
       
      Willing to separate. Open to reasonable offers.

      Item Condition: Used, no marks. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Enmore State: New South Wales Payment Method: EFT Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information: 
       
      I bought these new from Basement HiFi on York Street in 2005. They've been through three countries and a couple of international moves. I've loved these speakers and really enjoyed listening to them. They've been in non-smoking environment and work beautifully.
       
      I don't have shipping boxes for them, but can get something made up at pack and send at buyers expense if required. From that aspect, pickup is very much preferred.

      Purchased from SN member "(smart") because of very low price , and after 2 days of testing decided to pass it to someone who really needs it...all drivers in mint condition, sound as expected, no issues. If I find matching centre speaker, I'll keep it for HT setup. 
       
      Happy to demo, local sale only...
