A 130 Watt Speaker from Pioneer’s Linear Fidelity Series.
Here is a Pioneer pair of 3-way speakers that I came across in my adventures. While they are definitely not what I’d consider vintage at a guess I’d say they hail somewhere from the late 1980s to early 1990s. However, that said these speakers have a high-quality wood-grain finish with a deep shine that helps them to blend in very well with the 60s and 70s period gear.
I would be interested in finding a little more on these units as they look a little higher end and do not look like the junky speakers that Pioneer were producing for their complete component HiFi’s aimed at teenagers at that time (late 80s early
Being unable to find any official data or information on these speakers I’ll start with what I can read off the label on the rear. First and foremost they have a ‘rated power’ of 30 Watts and a maximum power rating of 130 Watts and their impedance is 6-ohms.
The cabinets measure 50 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm and are of a bass-reflex design with a port in the upper-right rear corner. The bass driver measured approximately 20cm across
These speakers seem to be well suited to genres such as Rock, Pop, Dance, and Dubstep, with a tight well controlled bass response and with good mid’s and highs that don’t over power you. I was nicely surprised with just how well these speakers performed and filled my living room effortlessly with hefty beats!
If I ever come across more info and what the “Linear Fidelity” series was all about I will post it here.
