Imperial Guitar & Soundworks

Offered for sale:

Used Electro-Voice SRO/15 speaker.

This speaker is in good condition, fully functional. We can’t explain the silver band around the speaker where the magnet bell joins the frame. Maybe at some point the bell rattled against the frame. If so, I can tell you nothing rattles now.

We at Imperial Guitar found an old Electro-Voice Engineering data sheet.

Here are the highlights:

“The SRO/15 musical instrument speaker combines reliability with high efficiency. A massive die-cast speaker basket and epoxy bonded magnetic structure assure precise alignment of moving parts regardless of the amount of handling encountered during normal usage. The powerful magnet structure combines with an extremely efficient edgewise-wound copper voice coil to produce greater sound pressure level for the same amplifier input. Efficiency of the SRO/15 is up to 3 db. greater than original equipment music speakers-and that is the equivalent of doubling your amplifier output.”

This is a great sounding and rugged vintage speaker. Come and get it!

“We test every used item when we buy it and bring it up to our standards before we offer it for sale.”

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
