The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

I am restoring a Philly for a member in our local radio club. He got the set with no speaker,

so we are hoping to get a useable correct Jensen pedestal to complete the job.

Thanks

Be patient. Good luck.

The 15 inch Magnavox pedestal speaker is standard from 1937 to about 1941. By 1941, some were flange mount. The voice coil is 38 ohms for the standard speaker.  Has a single 925 field coil with a tap at 525 ohms. The 7 pin speaker plug is hard to come by - and a 7 in tube base is no substitute  because it will not fit the amp speaker socket. The output transformer is mounted in the pedestal. An optional  PM tweeter pair was offered. Best to hold out for the correct speaker with proper cable and plug. 

In 1941, an optional 4 unit high fidelity system using all 8 ohm speakers and a crossover was introduced.

I think the owner will pay whatever it takes ( within reason ) to get this speaker with or without the tweeters.

So if anyone wants to part with one.....

I may have one to sell soon but was thinking of trying to keep it together with a chassis and power supply.

Were not these the speakers that sold for over $5,000 a few years ago?

Not the 15 inch....the ones that went so high are the 18 in speakers used in the Quaranta and MCMurdo Silver sets.

Hi Art

I am definitely interested in the speaker & cable if you will split it from the chassis.

Thanks

still sorting out as you can see from the other thread.

Will be traveling next week so it may be a few weeks before I know for sure

Hi Art

When you're ready to sell the speaker, I'm ready to buy it.

Thanks

John

John, I do not plan on splitting the speaker from the chassis unless no one wants the complete set and I have people interested.

Will let you know if I decide to split.

How much do you want for the complete unit?

John

I am sending out pix to a few members who have expressed an interest and am accepting offers.

PM your email address.
