I did some looking around for these speakers.
Seem the SPC 104 is an 4ohm speaker that very well may do the job.
Just now finding an out-let, or price for this speaker is A problem.
Any help from you Gents to find these speakers in the price range mentioned above would be Great.
These speakers will mount on the stand. You have to put on the connection for the wire. They will work fine, You should check the balance of the mikes for the proper balance so there isnt hot mike/cold mikes. If there is a spread you will have to install a resistor to balance things out.
Vince will be at the Grand, and if he has time, he is always happy to help. He knows much more about tuning speakers than I do. I am much better recognizing when the speakers are not tuned than getting all of them the same. The job is not difficult to do with a board of different resistors. Not every speaker requires the same resistor.
It is the damn cords that usually fail, right at the bend in the wire as it goes into the plug on the speaker. The wires are "hairlike" and don't hold up well to the constant bending due to the tilt adjustment of the cone....we have replaced the connectors and cords with more robust, now very FEW issues with them!
We offer a do-it-yourself kit to produce the Canterbury Microphones. The Speco microphones do work however the overall quality and consistency is poor and our testing shows at least 20% of them test too weak to be effective as mics for the CVR units. Secondly, testing only for impedence (ohms) does not give you a sensitivity level close enough to provide high quality results you would expect from the factory microphones. We use another OEM manufacturer who produces a better quality and stronger plastic mic.
Each of our mic kits contains the following:
• One pre-tested microphone (Tested on our proprietary sound level equipment.)
• The resistor necessary to correct any impedence issues for the mic.
• The two pin male chassis connector (the good one!) to plug in the mic wire.
• The bolt, washers and wing nut to fasten to the mic stand.
• The pre-glued rubber edge guard and the clamp to protect the edge of the mic.
• Complete assembly instructions.
With the above you will be able to assemble a microphone equal to the factory ones for less than half the price. You won't need to test them as we'll do that for you before we ship them.
Tools necessary are:
• Soldering iron. Small electronic type. (Radio Shack)
• Electronic solder and flux. (Radio Shack)
• Small philips screw driver.
• 3/4" open end wrench
• 1/8 - 3/4"step drill bit or a 5/8" forstner bit and a drill press.
• utility knife
• small needle nose pliers
• standard pliers
The Kit price is $23.75 each or set of 5 for 109.50 ($21.90 ea.) plus UPS Shipping. We accept Visa and Mastercard over the phone. 800-684-6329
We also carry all the other parts for your CVR systems. Check out our website above for items and prices.
