    Default RADFORD MONITOR M.90 , rescued

    Lovely ole things donít you think?
    Iíve yet to work on the cabinets and one woofer has the coating coming away which shouldnít be difficult ( if it warrants doing )
    All drivers working as they should though hf from the crossover isnít working so Iíll have to source replacements ( Iíll do them all of course).

    I think the sheep must have been of the Glastonbury breed

    Not seen any of those for a long time.

    It may say Radford on the mid, but it's a Goodmans unit. The bass driver looks like an alloy frame version of the Magnum K2 unit, cone looks similar.

    The 'coating' on the woofer is a vinyl skin and is also an integral pert of the roll surround.

    Hi Geoff, yes looking on the net they are apparently all Goodmans drivers .

    Well the one marked Peerless is a Peerless! Although Radford did use Goodmans tweeters too.

    They date from around 1970.

    If the outer edge of the vinyl skin is coming away it may be possible to glue it back.

    Actually looking at the photos again, it looks like the Peerless tweeters are replacements for the originals, which would likely have been DT3's.
