    Default What are these drivers?

    Hi guys, I have stripped down the Latvian Rigonda speakers with the intention of selling the parts ( being honest )
    The midrange are Audax HIF 17B 8ohm alu.
    I am asking for your help in identifying the woofer ( 10Ē) and tweeter ?
    Also is the crossover any good ?
    Oil filled caps I believe
    Everything works

    The woofers look like they could be Lomo units, if you do a google search you may find similar. The tweeters may be Lomo as well, can't recall. I had four of the tweeters many years ago, if I'm correct they have a small paper cone behind that front diffuser.

    Some use the big Lomo units (if that's what they are) as full range drivers. They can attract decent prices.

    Are you sure? The orange dust cap was a bit of a trademark with Lomo speakers. Although some others did that.

    Lomo used a variety of magnets.

    You may not spot any identical to yours, they did a huge range of models.

    I'd list them as 'Soviet' drive units and as you suggest Lomo with a question mark. Hard to anticipate what they'd fetch, so I'd personally either start them at 99p and see what happens, or put a reasonable starting price of say £25. Carriage extra obviously.
