Does any one know anything about Paradox TA-12 speakers? They were made by Sonic Energy System back in 197x. I came across a pair in very good condition and would like to restore them. Would it worth my effort? The quality of the sound is great.
There is an article about this speaker in March 1977 issue of High Fidelity magazine. Anyone has read the article and can share a copy?

Any help to find out about these speakers are appreciated.

Thanks

Bob

What do you mean by restore them?
The Paradox TA-12 had astounding imaging, clarity, and dynamic range for a speaker in it's price range. They were more a product of the art of the technology not the science of the technology, a lucky combination of drivers with near perfect compliment. Therefore replacing the drivers or even reconing might destroy the magic.

I have a pair of the TA-12's I bought used about 15 years ago. They are by far the best sounding speakers I've ever owned. The woofers were wasted so I replaced them with 60oz magnets, awesome sound. I wish I could find another pair for my surround sound system.

if your serious about buying a pair of ta 12's. maybe we could work something out. the cabients show thier age and the woofers have been reconed but they still sound awesome the mids and tweeters are in perfect shape,the adjustment knobs for the highs and mids are missing but i do have the grills. e mail me at eugenedean@hotmail.com. i live in the omaha /c.b. area...my name is russ..thanks....i can send pics when or if u want!!
