    Default Looking for specs, the original Mini Monitors

    These are my Mini's, I've owned them since new - consecutive serial numbers and everything. The XO's and the surrounds have been refreshed so I should be able to expect another 30 years of enjoyment from them.

    Does anyone have specs on these?

    I don't have spec's but have owned a couple pairs. They sound terrible so the spec's can't be that great and keep them out of direct sunlight.

    The very originals had sort of trapezoidal enclosures, sort of like teeny-tiny floor monitors.

    I didn't think they sounded terrible at all, but were on par with the popular minispeakers of the day (Visonik David, ads L-200, e.g.).

    Was the extended-range driver in the Mini-Monitors the same coated CTS driver used in the later versions of the Monitor 9 (i.e., Monitor 9A)?
    all the best,

    I believe that is correct Mark....the M9 was built from leftover parts. If they sounded good to you, remind me to not take recommendations from you now on.

    jeez, you sound like George!
    did you ever (take recommendations from me, that is)? :-)

    It was the 1970s, and recreational pharmacology was...relatively popular.
