Please Buy These Speakers!


No, this is not a substitute for a classified, which I bought and paid for, so take it easy. :) This is about history.
I have to sell my mother’s house and she still had my dad’s ElectroVoice Royal 400 speakers from the 60’s. It was part of what sparked my interest in audio. My dad had a Harmon Kardon Stereo Festival receiver, Rek-O-Kut table and Bell tape recorder along with the EVs and it sounded great. Anyway, it hurts me to see them go and I think they deserve to be restored and kept as part of audio’s heritage. They shouldn’t just fade away. I wish I could do it myself, but I just don’t have the room. So please take them, restore them and love them. When people say "it’s not about the money" it’s usually a lie, but this time it’s true. God bless you all.
BTW - If any of you know someone who is capable of restoring these in the NYC area, please let me know.  Maybe I'll figure out a way to do it.   Thanks again.

You might want to take this request over to the DIYAudio forum's classifieds.  Lots of DIY'ers there may be interested.
So the ending of this story is - they didn't sell on A'gon, but they sold on Ebay in 1 day.  They were purchased by an older Asian gentleman who already owned a pair and wanted another for his cousin.  He opened them up in my house and the insides looked like new, even after 50 years.  They had this huge white-coned 18" woofer that looked perfect and the other speakers were enclosed in a separate box within the larger enclosure.  In any case, we both figured the crossover caps would have to be replaced, but he took them home and called to say they were working perfectly.  After 50 years.  I find that quite amazing and I'm really glad they found a good home.  A tribute to old-school speakers I guess.  Peace. 
Glad this worked out for you. Also proved to be a great find for the Asian gentleman. 
Great find for lovers of Vintage speakers.
