Coral Beta 8
Well, before I disappear for 3 weeks reservist, I thought I should just post one more. ;)
These vintage drivers from the now defunct Coral Corporation are quite sought after. They are high effeciency fullrange drivers. At 8" with huge Alinico magnets, they are a nice sight to behold.
It's really quite difficult to get a pair in perfect condition. Some people have searched for a long time to get their hands on such specimen... Just take a look at these beauties on diyaudio.com.
I actually preferred the sound of the 8" better compare to the 10". No doubt, the 10" had better bass response, but it seemed a little too in-your-face for my comfort. Also, the 8" would be easier to integrate into my room than the 10". Well... this is one of those future projects in my backlog.
For now, enjoy the pics here.
