hello kids! Welcome to part II of Omahaul... I told you about Part I here... and it is time to show you Part II.. obviously from the title and teh above shot, I finally stumbled into my 555's... ahh... it has been a long time coming...
two of them are 555W, and two are labeled 555...
check out the cool original crate...
this is a later crate, though original to one of the
555W drivers... note the stamp is an ink stamp...
side label... again an ink stamp..
this was in the open crate... Ver Halen, this is your
and this is how you can tell if your drivers have
ever been opened.. two screws on each level have
seals on them.. and after all these years, it is very
and now to wreck you guys... this one is NOS..
the crate had never been open when the guy I
got these from found it in teh mid eighties..
he opened it the day he found it and then
just sealed it right back up... he had not opened
it since then.. he made me open it to "make
sure he wasn't selling me a rock"... too funny!
yep... it is the stupid rare mesh version... these have
better low frequency performance.. they are faster
and cleaner.. my theory is that WE abandoned this
due to the lower power handling, not due to performance
increases.. the pictures do not quite convey how fine the mesh is..
