I found a pair of these in a friends garage, and he gave them to me. He knows nothing about them.

They are 9 inch woofers in a 13 inch diameter cabinet about 3 feet long. The base is black veneer. It looks like the front had a trim ring or something to hold the outer cloth.

There are no logos, model numbers, or brand names anywhere on them. The woofers have the number 45109-9 printed on the cone. The magnet has a sticker with the number 10530, 16 ohm. It also has another number 67-93370043 G4 on it.

They look too professional to be home made.

Any info would be great, as I would like to re-cone them if possible.

Thanks,
Keen

I don't think they are for a car. No amp, and they are 16ohm.

Not 100% but looks like a 90's HSU Research cylinder sub HR or TN perhaps.

I think they were 16ohms cause they were normally pairs and ran as 8ohm off the external amp.

The TN 1220 used a 12" driver and it had the driver on one end and the ports on the other end of the column. So I don't think this sub is a TN 1220.

You're absolutely right. Just looked at some of my old pics to confirm. I'll edit my post. Thanks!

Thank you. That put me on the right track. I finally found a good photo of them on the net. They are Hsu HRSW10's.

Now to the point, does anyone offer a re-cone kit for them?

Thanks,
Keen

I have a couple of those drivers and I believe that Hsu was using Eminence for drivers at that point. Any good repair shop (Orange County Speakers or others) should be able to fix them relatively cheaply.

The Shiva's were made be Eminence as well, so the "family" resemblance is understandable. Any competent reconing service could easily fix them for you.
