PostForum: Other speakers   Posted: Sat Feb 13, 2016 2:08 pm   Subject: Stag.....
There is a pair of these particular 'Stags' on eBay, today the 13th of Feb 2010.
Opening bid 100.
Visually they are rather odd to look at, in my opinion.
As for the 'sound', who knows...

I have two brand new, unused, cherry veneer Falcon Acoustics LS3/5a cabinets for sale.
I built the Falcon LS3/5a kit, so these cabinets are surplus to my requirements.
Thanks.

The only way to improve that combination is to add a B110 midrange unit and use the Cantata crossover.

Necessity and unbelievable optimism made KEF combine those two units in the early years befor ...

If you have your LS3/5as calibrated by Derek Hughes, he will often add some damping to the B110s cones as well as any adjustments to the crossover.
I was informed by a former BBC employee that some ...

It cost me about 125 to rebuild some Codas for my son. I managed to get a pair of B110s for 40.
That's low for these times...
The T27s were 45, but that is about the going rate.

My own LS3/5as have been long in the making. I acquired two NOS T27s and a pair of matched B110s of the type used in the BBC LS3/5as 1&2 . These have the flexible leads showing on the B110 cone.

As for versions of the LS3/5a, I built my own. I was fortunate to purchase two Kef NOS T27s and a pair of the Kef B110 drive units of the version used in the 'BBC no. 1 & 2' LS35as.
