Does anyone have information on the C 45? Are they similar to the C 30s or C 60s?
Thank you

No, apart from the metal dome tweeter is probably a ferrofluid (prone to drying out aftter ~20 years), job.

The C15, C25, C45 and C65 are much later biwired animals than C10, C20, C30 and C40 units they appear to mirror.

thank you for your response. It is safe to assume that the C 45 would sound similar to the C 30? Does it help them if they are biwire?

The C45 will have the house sound wrt the bass-mid as the C30, dunno about the treble though.

With a small speaker I wouldn't expect massive magnetic fields from the bass inductor(s), so bi wiring should be viewed as a marketing ploy.

The steel jumpers between the binding posts however should be supplemented with a short piece of speaker cable.

Regarding the pair @ $50 plus shipping on US ePay, they are way overpriced imho.
