Up for sale here is one pair of Hawthorne Audio 10” Sterling Silver Iris coaxial drivers designed specifically for Open Baffle use. The Sterling Silver drivers were Hawthorne Audio’s top of the line drivers using a cast frame mid-woofer, a huge Radian compression driver and quality crossover parts. The mid-woofers have a paper cone with an accordion cloth surround
These were among the first modern drivers developed exclusively for Open Baffle use.
I used the Hawthorne Audio drivers (both 10” and 15”) in many builds over the years and I will include some pics of those builds here. Remember only the drivers and crossovers are for sale here.
These drivers have low hours on them and are cosmetically and operationally in excellent condition.These were an extra pair I ended up with when all was said and done.
These come with crossovers that use high quality parts; Goertz copper foil inductors and Claritycap ESA grade capacitors. The wiring is silver plated OFC with a Teflon jacket.
The crossovers are designed so you can easily swap out capacitors and I have some Mundorf Silver in Oil available at an additional cost if you so desire.
So if you have been thinking about an Open Baffle project this is a good opportunity to get some very nice drivers cheaply. These originally sold for about $1,400.00 the pair with crossovers.
You will need bass augmentation with these and I can help with suggestions for OB woofers if need be. If you already have a sub or two you should be good to go.
I’m always happy to answer questions from serious buyers. These are for local sale only with payment by cash.
I am located in Santa Maria.
Thanks for looking.
