"Hello John- Sorry, I have no connections to anyone with a 15" speaker.  My entry into the realm of Scott radios is barely 3 months old and I still have quite a lot to learn.  This forum has provided me with the best information I have…"

"Hello John- I will gladly purchase your AW23 Magnavox speaker to complete my radio that I purchased last December, which came with an incorrect substitute speaker, should you decide to sell yours separately.  Thank you and best regards- Troy…"

"The Philharmonic field coil is 925 ohms tapped at 515 ohms, per my notes. Study the amp and speaker diagram to see what the tap feeds. Same as the later Phantom amp using 6L6 output tubes,  and the Scott Laureate which also uses 6L6 output…"

"I have a Scott search set in my browser toolbar that I click on practically every day, and have so for at least 10 years.  I monitor the prices of what stuff sells for and I can tell you that a 15" pedestal will sell for the $300 to $700…"

"John, Monitor what appears on eBay. Ebay can be an expensive venue and you can't personally check electric condition. And there is shipping cost. And risk of poor packing. And risk of misleading descriptions. Take your time. Your amp has the…"

"Any of the 3 may have been shipped with a 9 control BOL AM only model Philharmonic, I think, because late 1939 to early 1940 seems to m to mark the change away from the pedestal speaker."

"Hi David Thanks for the detailed reply. Since I don't have the original speaker, it's hard to know for sure what it looked like. This chassis serial number RR-181 is the later 9 control set with the ultra high & TV band (no FM). It has…"

"John - The AW-23 speaker is unsatisfactory because the field coil is wrong and the output transformer in the speaker pedestal is for 2A3 triodes. The required Philharmonic speaker has specific field coil requirements and an output transformer for…"
