AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tom Jardine Feb 4. 16 Replies

There's a AM FM Phantom on ebay (112285817711), close enough to me to make it a possibility. It looks like the tweeters are a generic replacement, but wanted to see what the experts think. The…Continue

Philharmonic AM/FM on eBay - Tweeter question

Started Oct 13, 2015 0 Replies

Hi, There's a Philharmonic AM/FM on eBay (item 391291449114); many of you are probably familiar with or know of the seller.  I spoke to him about the set and I thought the tweeters were missing their…Continue

New to site, Philharmonic circuit differences

Started this discussion. Last reply by David C. Poland Sep 17, 2013. 6 Replies

Hi, New to the forum, but not to E H Scott Radios! I got the bug as a kid because my dad had a Phantom Deluxe. A few Zeniths along the way but always wanted a Philharmonic. I’ve narrowed my search to…Continue

Karl Sherwin replied to David C. Poland's discussion late 1930's Scott speakers
"Hi David, Thanks for the detailed write-up, something I tried to do in the past, as I still am looking for a Philharmonic and want to understand as many of the nuances of the Philharmonics, the tweeters being one of them. My dad had an AM…"

"Thank heavens I found the problem on the FM. One mis-wired cap. What I have noticed now and in the past (pre-restoration) on the upper SW bands are images, if that's the correct term, on either side of very strong SW stations only. Tom"

Scott Seickel replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"I see your point Karl.  If I were a betting man, I would say that the original tweeters were PM, and the speaker setup shown in the listing is from a Philharmonic.  I guess the only  way to know is to either ask the seller if the…"

Tom Jardine replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"Karl, from my very limited experience on the pre-war Scotts, there are many undocumented variations. I have just two sets, a post-war 800B and a pre-war AM-FM Philharmonic. The Philharmonic is giving me grief where I charged through changing…"

Karl Sherwin replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"I should have been more clear in my first post that I could tell the speakers were not original to the set, which is why I suspect the crossover is set up for the PM tweeters. I appreciate all the responses, as always, I learn more about the Scott…"

"Good point!"

Scott Seickel replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"I don't think those speakers go with that set.  The guy states that the cabinet hole is 12" and the speaker is 15".  You can see the mounting holes where the original speaker was in that cabinet.  The speakers are from…"

Tom Jardine replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"Norman,  my crossover may be a later one? The crossover point is stamped "6 kc" on the bottom. From what I've read, the crossover point was originally 2 khz according to Riders volume 14 which also shows connections for PM…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"I would not say the crossover chassis "normally" came with two pin sockets.  I have seen some crossover chassis with two pin sockets and others with four pin sockets for the tweeters.  The GE VR cartridge is one of the best for…"

Tom Jardine replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"Gents, you can clearly see the crossover chassis mounted vertically that was part of the "High-Fidelity" option on FM Phantoms and Philharmonics and normally came with two-pin connectors for each of the PM tweeters. In this discussion it…"

David C. Poland replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"My unrestored Scott Laureate has the coaxial version 15 inch Magnavox speaker. The tweeter, centered inside the big cone,  is a field coil type. The separate outboard crossover has a 35Z6 rectifier for the tweeter field power supply. I…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"As part of the optional "four unit speaker system", the tweeters were provided both ways, field coil or permanent magnet.  I do not know why both types were used at different times but it was a production change. Norman"

Karl Sherwin replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"In my original post I was going to mention that the tweeters looked to be field coil types, but the tweeters used on the Phantoms and most Philharmanics were PM types. So either someone modified the crossover box to feed B+ to the tweeters, or the…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Karl Sherwin's discussion AM FM Phantom on eBay - non Scott tweeters?
"The fact that they are field coil tweeters pretty much establishes them as pre-WWII.  They are essentially the same as the bullet tweeters without the magnet cover.  Late in the production of pre-WWII products, some materials were in…"
