Vintage Akai SW-175 five way speakers The big Ones

Due to eBay's silly new policies The Quoted shipping price may be not be correct.

Vintage Akai from the early seventies. This set of SW-175 five way , six driver speakers were the flagship in the early days. The 5-Way six drivers configuration consists of an alnico magnet 2 x2.5"metal horn tweeter, two 3" metal dome super tweeters, one alnico magnet 2.5" paper cone super tweeter, one 5.25" alnico magnet mid-range and one 15" woofer with linear travel piston edge. Crossover network has high and midrange tone controls. Measure 25 x 17 x 11 inches, each speaker weighs in at 48 pounds. Published specs show 20 to 23,000Hz !! 94 dB sensitive. These 8 ohm speakers are rated for 80 watts. Cabinets are scratched in spots , nothing ugly, but worth mentioning. T is a small chunk out of one on the bottom corner (see image). Grills had the optional wood lattice covers, but are damaged so I removed them, but will include them if you want. . Loose weave cloth grills and badges are in great shape. Crossovers could use some tuning up, the adjusting pots are scratchy and have some dead spots, however I have all drivers working in the present setting, and do these put out the sound. When driven they are chest thumpers! I am sure the neighbors could hear them with no issues. Sold "as is" for no reserve. would prefer local pickup, however I will ship in two boxes. they weigh 100 pounds for the pair so it will be expensive to ship.Sold "as is" as described.
