Fisher XP-10 Refurb
$100 – $500
Bringing a pair of Fisher XP-10 speakers dated 1967 back to life with an exterior refinishing, new crossovers, new Morel Tweeters, wiring, and insulation.
Excellent sound while maintaining an original appearance.
Vintage HH Scott 15″ ALNICO woofer, original 8″ mid driver, Morel CAT308 tweeter
Original XP-10 sealed enclosure
Consolette type, walnut, with original fabric
2nd order, 3-Way, Butterworth
Crossover points: 300 hZ and 2500 hZ
Although probably not optimum due to me simply building a crossover from a calculator to be similar to the original crossover points, these speakers still sound great! I am really happy with how they turned out. The Morel tweeters really woke the highs back up without being overpowering.
About the Designer:
A regular guy that likes vintage hi-fi equipment and bringing it back to life. My system consists of a McIntosh C11 pre-amp, a pair of MC-30 mono block amps that I rebuilt, an MR-71 tuner, and a Dual 721 turntable in a base that I hand made. I rotate between a pair of Boston VR-975 speakers, a pair of vintage ElectroVoice Marquis that I rebuilt with Crites crossovers and rear firing bass port, and now these great sounding Fisher XP-10s.
I also have my first McIntosh piece that I rebuilt as well. An MA-5100 integrated amp.
