In Reply to: RE: Art speakers... posted by ASHRA on May 31, 2017 at 14:31:27
Ashra -- those are the best of the series of large bookshelf speakers made by Neshaminy under license. Nice paint! They do require a connection to the wall AC, but it's missing from the one you show the back of. The speakers will not have any treble without this.
The cables in your picture are for connecting the speaker terminals to the receiver. Make sure you are consistent about which color goes to which post, e.g., red goes to +, black to -.
Someone has apparently clipped away the power cord. There may be enough of the original cord sticking out to splice in a new one. If not, someone will have to do a little surgery on them. At any rate, if you take these to a repair shop, it will not be hard to fix this aspect.
DavidJanszen - Thanks for the info. It was not at all clear when viewing the backs what the proper connection would be with 117 volts. Looks like I have a bit of a project on my hands. I'm looking forward to completion.
For what it's worth, those two little tweeters look like Peerless cones. Pretty good in their day which was late 60's early 70's. They got used in things like the Rectilinear III and Infinity 2001.
Good electrostatic panels need a polarizing voltage, hence the line cord and power supply. If the power supply has been removed, good luck.
