    Default Far out in-walls.

    Found these cool speakers at an estate/demolition sale.
    They were part of a set that included an in-wall fold down turntable, and the master control unit (AM-FM, intercom)
    Worked my butt off on the uninstall.

    I guess you were the sh*t if you had one of these systems back in the day.

    Very cool.
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    Those are smooth speakers... 'without the nicks and cuts of a blade". I thought Norelco only made electric shavers.

    Norelco and Braun were fairly heavy hitters in the speaker arena 'back in the day'.

    If the cones are in as good shape as the rest of the drivers appear to be, they're probably worth a decent amount of money, especially overseas.

    Never put a buy it now on something vintage like that, it may have gone for much, much more. It constantly amazes me what I ship to Japan / Hong Kong, etc, and what they pay for it.

    Thanks I'll keep that in mind.

    Here is some pics of the rest of the set up, they were all on the same green color paneled wall overlooking some sweet green shag carpet.
