Pioneer’s SCS-11 are very cute and of 60s to possibly very early 70s vintage. The cases are an attractive wood veneer finish and a grill cloth with a unique and attractive stripe pattern.
The SCS-11’s are very rare, while you will generally always find a pair of SCS-12 models floating around on eBay, these I am yet to see there! Furthermore I haven’t been able to locate any information online regarding these at all?!
So what do we know about these speakers? Well I read the label on the back…
Manufacture: Pioneer Electronics
Max Input Power: 18 Watts
Impedance: 8 Ohms
Made in Japan
They are fitted with the polarised speaker plug used in many late 60s and early 70s Pioneer Amplifiers and Receivers and are wall mountable. I suspect they have a single 6.5″ inch driver similar to the SCS-12, but I never opened them up so this is just a guess.
While obviously not a high-powered speaker, they are well matched to my Pioneer SA-5300 amplifier which is rated at 10-Watts RMS and together they produce a surprisingly rich and warm sound that was very enjoyable to listen to.
As you can see one speaker had some unfortunate damage to one corner.
