SE4122 unmarked speaker labels

Postby walter skalter on Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:49 pm

Hi all, I recently bought a 1972 Hiwatt DR103 with two original SE4122 speaker cabinets. Now I would like to sell one of these cabinets because it's just too damn loud to use both :shock: .

But before I sell, I want to be 100% certain the purple Fane's inside are all original. The thing is, there's a serial number on only one of the speakers, and it's really hard to decipher. My guess would be 29/71. I'd appreciate if you guys could tell me your opinion, here's a link to the photo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k1fttsijx77ax ... 1.jpg?dl=0

Nonetheless, the three remaining speakers don't have a serial number at all, they just have the 122142 model n°, 50 watts power output, 17 000 Flux Density and 15 Ohms written on them. I did manage to get the cone codes though, which are the following: 7 102 024.

Could you guys help me out dating these speakers based on the cone code? Could it be that they only labeled one speaker inside the cab on purpose? Have other people had the same experience? The cab serial n° is 2393, which would date it to 1972. Any answer would be a great help, thanks a lot!

Hi, the cab is located Belgium. Shipping to the US is a possibility but I'm afraid it won't come cheap...

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

That's the production code (29th week of 1971). It's rare to see a "real" serial number on a Hiwatt Fane. They typically used that blank for dating.

All the above is legit for vintage Hiwatt Fanes from that era. Assuming all have the same frames and appearance, you're in good shape :thumbsup: .
