Pioneer CS-99A with 15" Woofys
 
1 Attachment(s)
I ordered a new Sony 40" LCD HDTV... am waiting for it.

I plan to use my 1970s-ish ($250 a box) pair of
Pioneer CS-99A speakers for the audio...
...used with my Sony 100W tuner/amp i have.

They are six way speakers... each box.

I am new to this forum as well...:hithere:

Oughta work fine for the R/L fronts. I have a pair of CS-77A (12", 4-way) as my fronts, with a MTX center and in-wall speakers ( 6 1/2" two way) for the surround. I prefer BIG speakers, not the cute, dainty little cubes a lot of people put up with!

BTW, even with the 15 inchers, if your receiver has a sub/LFE output, I would recommend a honking BIG sub, too. If you like to really feel your movies, that is! I didnt think I would gain much with a sub with the 12" woofers, but there is a lot of extra bump in the .1 channel.

Speaker technology has evolved and made many great strides since those speakers were made. You just might want to think about upgrading them as well since you have a nice new TV. Your ears will appreciate it. BTW those speakers look to be 3 way.

Well, i am a blues music fan... great speakers they are.

Two 1.5" Super Tweeters.
Cellular speaker Horn.
4" Mid-range.
5" Mid-range.
15" Woofer.

Call it what you may... they are outstanding.

I have computer speakers and a Panasonic mini-stereo
and they have your tiny speakers. They don't compare.
Not even close to shaking nails out of the house.;)

Strides in what respect, Loves2watch? Size? A little more on the top end of freq's? I will agree to those advances. On the flip side, if one can live with the size of vintage speakers and they are in operable condition, the sound is pretty incredible.

Glad the OP likes what he has...25hz-22Khz...97db sensitivity...those are some pretty decent specs for old technology. Thinking one would be in pretty deep ($) with a current stand alone speaker to get those numbers.

I've heard of speakers having "super tweeters" that were just for looks and weren't even wired in... I certainly wouldn't expect that from Pioneer though. They look sweet.

scootski 02-20-2008 04:48 PM

They are Very Sweeeeet... they don't sound like toiletpaper tubes.
They don't have that phoney bass to them either... they push lots
of air... lots of surface there to move the air.

Yes the SuperTweets work fine on them... they are REAL.
You hear tingley sounds of extremely high freqs. Nice!

Each box weighs only 51-pounds (each box).
Was a good investment at the time decades ago... glad i
bought them and glad i took care of them. Venier is like new too.

I even have the original spec sheets on them, that came
with them when new.

I fall into the same group as you...I have a pair of Sansui SP7500x speakers with 15" woofers and have loved using them for 30+ years. They are currently the front L-R speakers in a secondary system I have. I would not replace them for current speaker offerings - they just sound too good.

The strides I was speaking of are better materials, better highs, imaging, efficiency, rigidity, dampening and bass response from a smaller woofer. Now with that being said I certainly was not saying anything bad about the OP's speakers in fact they are very nice. Just making a suggestion as newer technology offers superior speakers in a bit smaller package. But speakers are subjective and to each his own.

Sorry, I'll die of old age and my wife WILL keep them....
She LOVES the speakers too... we crank up the blues here
every sat/sun afternoon...during laundry times !
Our house! Our madness ! LET HER EAT !

you should hear Blues, Blues Harmonica & Blues Hammond B-3
Organ on those speakers..... you'd cry! So damn good !:yippee:

Try searching ebay (i don't trust ebay so i don't ebay)... or do
searchs at google for them... gotta be some around somewhere.

I've heard the newer mini speakers.... i even own some...
they suck compared to these. Truely no match at all.

When you throw the juice to the older BIG air-pushers...
you'll know what i mean.... hee hee

ps - i went to Best Buy and looked around at the speaker
stuff... not impressed by the meager offerings.
Anything close to a large speaker box had a price tag
that was outrageous! What i saw was nothing
close to the 99s. Not to even mention the woodwork
on/of the 99s...

I fully understand.

Scootski, I am sure your speakers sound great, but it seems your ears have suffered some damage over the years. When you consider a good speaker to have the capability of "shaking nails out of the house" then I understand why you went to bestbuy to compare speakers. I mean no disrespect to you at all. Check out these speakers. http://www.adam-audio.com/studio/

They don't sell them at bestbuy.

DrDre 02-24-2008 10:49 PM

Try these speakers as well:
