Speakers - Coral BX-1200
Can you say Kabuki without smiling? These Coral BX-1200 speakers from the late 70's are 5-way, 6-driver speakers with that classic Sansui look and sound.
I especially like the labels on each driver so you know what you're listening to. Of course the question inevitably arises: "Just how many drivers can we pack into a cabinet?" And the answer? As many as you think you need to sell speakers to people who believe in "the more, the better" philosophy. Confused? Me too - it's late and I still have to help clean up the kids' room.
I had these speakers for about a week then traded them and a six pack of domestic beer for a single Boston bookshelf speaker. I think I got the better end of that deal.
Have any experience that's more helpful than mine with Coral speakers? Shouldn't be too hard :) Please shoot me an email or leave a comment.
What's it worth?
