MAGNAT MAGNASPHERE SONOBULL GAMMA 140/200 Watt SPEAKERS Black
One pair of Magnat Magnasphere Gamma 4-way Bass Reflex Speakers These rare speakers are a beautiful feat of German engineering. Stunning both visually and sonically. This set has been well cared for and is working perfectly. Cosmetic condition is very good. The "heads" are easily removable for shipping.

Info from the web:
The origin of excellence in the Magnat Magnasphere, designed and built in Germany, is the use of spheres that surround the stereo sound 360 degrees.
And there are total 8 speakers in each cabinet!
The speaker is designed as a pyramid to minimize conflict and interference between the baffle board and the drivers.
This design creates a spectacular sound image where the listener is intimate with the crystal clear highs (to 34khz), fast mid frequencies and lows down to 25 hz with crisp detail.
The dazzling sound effects a surrounding stereo image to give precise placement of the instruments.
These were originally priced at 2,499 UK pounds sterling, equivalent to $3,288.

The source of the following is Audio Karma:
These speakers are 4-way, 4 driver speakers built in Germany- very accurate and deliver detailed sound. The entire speaker is designed as a pyramid to minimize conflicts and interference between the baffle board and the drivers. The sides of the cabinet are tapered in at the sides of the bass and mid drivers and the midranges and tweeters are located spherically to offer no interference from cabinetry thus minimal coloring of the sound, unlike you get from traditional boxes. The mid's and tweeters are also omni-directional units as they are each two drivers back to back. This adds to the speakers presence and life-like sound as you also receive reflected sound as well as direct mid and top end, i.e. 360 degree sonics.

- Unique and logical pyramid design
- 4-way, Air-Suspension design

-Dual, 1" Aluminum Dome Tweeters in omni-directional arrangement
- Edge-wound, Ribbon wire voice coils on the upper-end freq drivers

- Serious crossover network and drivers internally wired with oversize (14 AWG) wire
- Perforated Metal Grill

To answer a question, I could box them but do not have the original boxes.
