Re: Philips Hi-Fi International Vintage Amp & Speakers

saw this pretty late, OOPS , a lot of people asking for this CRAP speakers, Just burned a pair few days earlier, THe thing was gathering white ants in our store in the out-house, SO just took the drivers and all from inside and burned that box, Took some photos at the time, Those remained in the camera SD card, So posting it as a memorial,

Sorry if I sound negative, these were in my Late Dad's library, along with a rectangular Ampli/tuner called AH-798 or something, THere is not a single piece of wood on these, Burning near 40 year old straw and wood shavings is a good fun, It is environment friendly, (Burns completely, no residue)


Enjoy the pics

This was working, but flutter was so much, so took a look inside, white ants did their job well, Wondering how sound comes from these in this condition

No offenses personally speaking but this reminds me of Bamyan Buddhas.

BAMYAN was never eaten by white ants, Well nothing is lost except a box made of straw, other things including the cotton filled pillows are here, What about making a new box from proper wood ? Will they be any good if I get it reconed

I did not spoil anything , which was already not spoiled, See the pics, How well I have recovered all those drivers

Re: Philips Hi-Fi International Vintage Amp & Speakers

Hope you took measurements/templates of the box before burning them.

Btw, the straw like box has very good acoustic properties compared to plywood or mdf but is also very brittle. Recently, I tried to check the model of the driver in my Pioneer CS-15 speaker and damaged it a bit before I could realise it was made up of this straw like material. Luckily, it is on the rear portion of the speaker and damage is only cosmetic.

That material of which the "straw box" is made is called particle board AFAIK. In fact my first real hifi setup had kenwood speakers made of similar material. The disadvantage is, they absorb moisture and develop permanent swelling. Mine got swollen after my living room got flooded by water from tap that I forgot to close. I got new boxes made from MDF. Looks like you need to do extensive restoration by De-rusting and repainting the spiders and also re-coning them

Well, I know that, I'am thinking of a teak wood cabinet , Well are they worth all this trouble is the question, THe other box in the pair seems to have a good body even though the suspension part is eaten, The tuner was making some noise , on the SW part, well donated that, There is also some remainings of a turntable, along with this, I do remember my DAD brought home this with much fanfare, sometime after the Emergency period, Was talk of the village for many days, Rs. 7500 or something, and had to be purchased from Madras in those days,(I wish he changed his LANDMASTER instead, Everyone made fun of me at school for that car too, Anyway it did not remain a big attraction for long as my Uncle presented an AKAI cassette deck with three band radio two separate speakers, pretty good looking ones, from Dubai and this went unceremoniously to the library), Indian products always looked like cheap and sounded cheap compared to Japanese stuff, anytime

See this picture


What wattage are these speakers? any idea,

Wow, I love Landmaster(Morris Oxford) and dream of owning one in this lifetime along with a World War II Jeep, VW Beetle, VW Splitwindow Microbus and a Mini Cooper. If you still have it and have even the faintest idea of burning it or selling it, please let me know.
