Dating vintage jensen speakers Sex chat cam vancouver
I am a big fan of Akai gear and these speakers were a sweet surprise!
They are rated at a very usable 60 Watts max input at 8 ohms and provide a great range of sound for their size and class and featured a 10 inch woofer and 1 3/4 inch tweeter in a sealed cabinet.
One question we're often asked is "how old is my speaker?
" And if your speaker is in reasonably good condition, then it is straightforward to find this out for yourself.
These speakers look great and would suit a wide range of vintage 70s amplifiers and receivers.
The SCS-11’s are very rare, while you will generally always find a pair of SCS-12 models floating around on e Bay, these I am yet to see there!
Overall these speakers are in good vintage condition and I think they look great.
On close inspection the vinyl has been touched up in places and has imperfections, alas it is the curse of the late 70s thin laminate!
Aesthetically these speakers suffered from the trend that began in the mid-seventies to replace real wood with laminate.Cosmetically it appears that Jensen managed to avoid the cheap thin laminate that many other manufactures had adopted at this time.Overall the laminate on the pair I acquired is in great condition with no major peeling occurring anywhere, though some tiny lifting here and there is evident.While the AR48S doesn’t yet have the vintage recognition of say the AR5, their performance is very impressive.Their mid-range and high’s are excellent and well dispersed and they sound great even when your positioned closely to the speakers.
I recapped with audio grade polypropylene capacitors of the correct specification.
