Hi Sanjay,

You could be sitting on a goldmine,have you opened the speakers and looked at the drivers?

Knight was the brand name of speakers sold by the Allied Radio Corp in the 1950's and 60's (before Tandy / Radio Shack bought the company in the late 1960's). Knight speakers usually contained drivers from Jensen, Electro-voice, Utah, Goodmans of England, and even Foster of Japan with the quality of the drivers depending on the price point of the particular model.

Since you say 16 ohm I suspect they might be Jensen Coaxial,or Goodmans drivers.

What is the model of your Tannoys?

I have a pair of Tannoy Monitor Golds from 1974.(my Dads)

The various Altecs I have date from 1965-1978 that I have picked up over the past ten years.

Regards
Rajiv

I have a Sansui Amplifier AU 517which was manufactured in 1977 and Acoustic Research Speakers ( should be more then 25 years old) . I am using this as a Second system and both bought second hand 5 to 6 years back . Much much better then my New system.

Bose AM10 going great for the past 11 years. I have moved it to 7 different states in the US through various means of transport and finally to India through checked-in luggage. It has survived all these onslaught :eek:hyeah:
