So heres the deal...
I was at a garage sale and stumbled upon a pair of vintage looking Sansui SP-910M speakers, and the $20 tag caught my eye. I'd never had a set of Sansui's, but I've always heard great things about their old products. The owner was very busy and told me he didn't have a stereo I could try them out on--he seemed like he was in a hurry to get rid of everything. So, I decided to take a gamble and go for it.
After taking the cover off, I noticed that both midranges were pretty much shot. One with a complete tear and the other with a big hole, and both with caved in cones. I had a pair of Onkyo midranges of the same size at home, so I figured I could swap them, no biggie.
The woofers and hi's seemed to be in pretty good condition for their age, so I figured eh, what the hell, and gave him a crisp $20.
Once I got home, I hooked them up to a junky stereo and was surprised that even sans-midrange, they actually still sounded pretty decent.
I then took the midranges out so I could replace them, but noticed that on the back, there was no "Sansui" logo, or "Made in Japan", only "Taiwan" and a number. I checked the woofers as well, and no "Sansui" on them either, just "Taiwan" and a number. Hmmm...thats not good.
Looked at some pics of Sansui speakers online, and all that I found sure enough had "Sansui" printed right on the back, with "Made in Japan". Shi...
So, I've come here, to the experts, because google does not turn up much information regarding my issues, and I could not even find a reference to my specific model.
To make a long story short, does anyone know if Sansui ever manufactured speakers without labeling them, or did I just waste my money on no-name speakers in a Sansui box?
Thanks for any input, you guys are awesome. Any time I have an A/V question I always find it here before I even have to ask, but since this is such an unusual incident, this is my first actual post.
