SOLD: FS: Castle ISIS + Spares

Recommended Posts

Item: Castle ISIS + Spare Parts

Location: Manly, NSW
Price: $100 or make an offer

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
Item Condition: Cosmetically Good, Some Speaker Damage
Reason for selling: No longer needed

Extra Info: 

These speakers sound magnificent, but need some attention. Fix them up, or use them for parts.

* The cone on the right driver has long crack in it. It still works and I can't discern any sonic difference. There is brand new spare woofer that can be used as a replacement that comes with the sale.

* The cone on the left driver has a tiny crack in it that I've glued to stop it developing any further.

* A spare tweeter is also supplied, though is not needed as the tweeters are still great. 

 

I'm getting new speakers, so no longer have the passion to fix these.

In case anybody is wondering....

 

These drivers all but eventually crack (used in my Harlech's as well) so it's definitely not abuse from the owner. There are modern Monacor near drop in replacements that sound heaps better. Original drivers can no longer be sourced and are no longer made (made in house by Castle back in the late 80's to 92ish) since Castle was sold to another company.

 

Monacor SPH-135 C and KEP's are drop in replacements with the driver recess needing a bit milled off on your enclosure.

 

Great speakers however.....gltws
