This pair of Vintage Allied Radio S3001 Speakers is part of a collection of HF radios, transceivers, stereo equipment and test equipment that we have been asked to auction for the benefit of an elderly enthusiast who has financial needs.
These 8 ohm speakers were part of a working stereo system which he has had since the late 1960’s.
Each measures 10" by 20" by 5 1/2".
They are in exceptionally fine condition without any tears, mars or scratches as can be seen in the photographs.
According to him, these were the number 2 rated speakers as tested and reported on by Consumer Reports Magazine at that time, so the sound quality was top notch, just behind a much more expensive speaker pair, with all other mid-priced speakers trailing behind.
Again, these speakers are in simply excellent condition by any standards
By the way, the brass “Allied” nameplates rotate 360 degrees so that the speakers themselves may be mounted vertically or horozontally and the logo rotated so as to still read left to right.
Since we will be unaware of how these speakers will be used or mounted, they are being offered on an AS/IS basis, without any warranty or right of return, so CAVEAT EMPTOR!
The same pair of speakers sold on Ebay earlier this year for $49.99,so we will start them for $24 and offer them with NO RESERVE and see what they goes for.
Each speaker weighs 11 pounds, so shipping weight when properly when boxed up will likely be 25 to 28 pounds.
Speaking of shipping, they will be carefully individually wrapped in heavy duty bubble wrap and placed in an oversized box (face to face with extra bubble wrap between the faces) and both further bubble wrapped before placing them in a sealed and fiberglass taped box.
Insurance is INCLUDED in the shipping and handling costs so they may seem a trifle high.
Thank you and good luck bidding.
These speakers come from a non-smoking environment and does NOT smell from any tobacco products.
