"This is the Scott speaker (by Rola) for the Scott 2-Dial of 1931, and also for the very first month or two of the !2 tube Deluxe introduced Spring 1932. It has a 5 pin plug as does the correct amp with a 5 pin socket. "

"The 83v has a very low voltage drop across it at rated current.  The 5z3 and the 80 have a much higher voltage drop and will decrease your B+ voltage notably. "
