    Anyone know what model speakers thwse are. I didn't know Vifa actuallly sold complete speakers, I thought rhey only sold drivers.

    Do we think they could be any good?

    Those could actually be very good, if equipped with decent crossovers.

    Looks like a "showcase" product, of Vifa's (probably) most popular DIY drivers.

    Actually, depending on the price, they are probably a very decent sounding speaker. They look almost identical to the ESM3, Paisley Research Reference One, Paradigm 5se, Angstrom. Heck I think the JPW AP3, Heybrook and Tannoy C8 all used Vifa and were all very nice sounding.... Enjoy.

    It's the dept of those cabs that I like. I'm in for shallow but deep cab. Can't tell you why.

    Trigger pulled on these. I've got them back at home and just been listening to them. They sound really great. Actually quite lively, fast, clear even punchy.

    The Tweeter is the Vifa D26tg-05-06 1" Silk Dome.

    And the Woofer is the 8 " vifa P21WO39

    Still a Mystery what this actually is. Looking at the cabinet build I'd say it's not a kit. I'd say it was a factory built speaker. Perhaps as someone suggested a demonstration unit made by Vifa or a company Vifa partnered with?

    Will pull the crossover out later and take a couple of pics.

    Similar to Dahlquist M905. And if it sounds anything like them then they should sound wonderful.

    Shallow but not deep? pretty hard to create a cabinet with that type of dimension. Do you mean narrow but deep?
