Hello Audio enthusiasts! I have a pair of Woodstock speakers , I am not sure of the model number but it is the one with 5 speakers per enclosure - 12" Woofers, two 4" midranges and two tweeters (a paper tweeter and a dome tweeter), with a rating of 75 watts RMS per channel. I have been using these speakers with a Technics AMP SU -X911. I am not sure if the SU-X911 is able to drive these massive speakers. I was wondering if changing the AMP will make a difference. Are the Woodstock speakers being underutilized ? Your suggestions please. Thanks - Nostalgia.

Thanks Marsilians and Dushie for the revert. Like Dushie says , Woodstock is an Indian Brand (Made in Delhi), was quite popular in the 80's , along with COSMIC Arphi etc. Unfortunately Woodstock does not advertise its products and hence there is no material on the net. If I could be more specific with my question , My Technics Amp is 25 Watts RMS per channel and the Woodstock speakers are 75 Watts RMS per channel. Is this combination acceptable ? Will the performance of the speakers improve if I upgrade my Amp ? and if yes, then could pl suggest a suitable power rating of the AMP. Thank you both. Since Dushie owned a Woodstock speakers some years back , can you recall its performance with the Woodstock AMP. Tx.

The Technics amp you are using seems to be quite under powered.
I have seen and heard these speakers, and for ideal output they will require an Amp with RMS of 100-120 Watt atleast - and most of common amps from the reputed Brands like Marantz/ Yamaha/ Cambridge/ Denon will sound quite flat with these, except their high end models.

Will suggest you:
  • Woodstock AW 602
  • Norge

I am also using the Woodstock AW 602 amp with my DIY Speakers. You may refer to thread:

Nice to see Woodstock's name come up on the forum....I still have a pair of Woodstocks which my father bought 15 years back and he still swears that they sound better than my Quad 11Ls ....He again bought it with a Woodstock 75 Watts amp and an Akai deck.
Amit: Noticed that you are also in Faridabad....I think we might even have a mini Faridabad forum for ourselves as I know of a nuber of audio enthusiasts.....My advice to you would be not to sell them as they look great especially if they have a 2 mids and 2 tweeters and a big woofer....The sound is very decent if you play party music...
