"Interesting speaker design. My early all wave 23 has two sockets on the base for the tweeters. Is this one a later version that was supplied when  ordered with the tweeter option? Thom"

Posted by Tony Peterson on April 22, 2018 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

I need a name plate for a Scott RBO-2 Navy Receiver and the 4 screws that secure it to the front panel.
