    So... Saw this in my area, thinking about picking it up just due to the vintage-ness, but I wasn't sure if this was actually a GOOD speaker or just crap... Anyone know?

    So it's partly red? How wide across is it?

    IF you can read the codes on the legs of the frame, that might tell us something. The codes on the paper of the cone are of interest. Does that black rubber thing come off of the magnet?

    Looks like a G12H30 Blackback that somebody painted red

    That is is why I asked about the speaker model and date codes on the frame. Those codes won't be there if someone did a paint job on the frame. And...if they did that the cone is likely to be non-original.

    So we are back to basics: IF it sounds good and IF the price is right ... then it´s your decision.
