"David   I completed the recap and on the radio and amp and finished adding the 10 watt 400 ohm power resistor in series with the field coil, I am now showing 887 ohms across the coil, I also added a 2uf cap in series with the tweeter as you…"

"Yep - Finding a speaker plug will be a challenge. The standard  7 pin plug or tube base has two fat pins side by side being pin #1 and #7 ( counting clockwise from prong side). The speaker fat plug pins are #1 and #4 - May have to make one.…"

"David I wanted to reply now that I am ready to address the speaker. I recapped the receiver and the amp, I found a couple of cracked resistors and those paper caps hiding in the metal cans under the chassis. Three issues you mentioned I needed to…"

"Kirk - Don't concern yourself now with the possible need for output transformer until you actually need one. If and when, then I can give you detail on what I did to modify an output transformer..  Meanwhile, you appear to have a…"

"Hi Thomas, thank you for your input, I started a spreadsheet and listed needed capacitors for the receiver and amp. Most of the schematics for the Phantom Deluxe are difficult to read when blown up enough to read written cap values. I went back to…"

"Thomas - Hammond makes some universal output transformers. At several watt ratings like 2, 5 10 and up to 15 watts. With 6 output lugs covers a lot of tube/voice coil combinations but max out at about 16 ohms. Radio Daze also carries some…"

"Kirk; Until you can find the correct speaker, check out Antique electronic Supply as mentioned for the capacitors. They also carry a line of Hammond (not the organ co.) transformers and have one that will match 6L6 tubes to any speaker.  The…"

"Again, great information, that just made my day! First thing I would like to recap the set, I am working on what I need to do that. As far as the speaker it sounds like the hard part will be to find a connector. Dave that was one of the first things…"

"Your Phantom Deluxe may have had a 12 or a 15 inch speaker with curved cone, may have depended on the original cabinet. Because you confirmed your speaker came from  a Magnavox radio using 6L6 output tubes, then you should have a sufficiently…"

"Dave you are correct I went back to the source I acquired the speaker from, I knew it was pulled from a 6L6 amp but was told it was pulled from a Magnavox radio. Thanks for the information, I am on the lookout, I will try to be patient and wait for…"

"For comparison, look at this pre-war Scott 15 inch coax on eBay: eBay item number:  122766396020.   Looks a lot like yours - BUT:   is not correct for your Phantom Deluxe.   Note this eBay field coil speaker 1) lacks an…"

"That pins 1 and 7 have a jumper, likely carried 115 house voltage to the power switch, acting as an interlock to prevent the original radio from powering up without the speaker (to avoid risk of damage). I doubt your coax speaker was from a Scott…"
