These vintage Realistic speakers are a real blast from the past! Custom made in Japan for Radio Shack (YES, they used to sell some awesome stuff!) These babies are all original (with the exception that I personally replaced the capacitors in the crossover with brand new ones), and they sound AMAZING! Deep, rich bass (the addition of a cement-like ring on the inside area of the woofer cone near the dust cap means a lower resonance frequency range, and therefore deeper bass response), and crystal clear mids and highs. Dual midrange drivers for that extra depth of field. Musical and accurate sound reproduction, and a complete joy to hear and see. Treble and midrange slider switches to adjust to your own personal taste. Made from quality materials too (none of that 1/2" MDF that sounds like a garbage can when you knock on it), these have real wood veneer, not plastic, and weigh about 40 lbs EACH. Solid as a tank. If you have any hesitation about them, please do a Google search on them and read the forums for yourself. Highly respected speakers. Come hear them yourself!
