Things to consider of vintage speaker before buying:
- Power and efficiency of the vintage speaker:
One of the big misconceptions is a 100 watt rated speakers which could not possible be damaged by a 50 watt per amplifier channel.
This won’t wrong, as an amplifier turn up until distorts which can easily damage other speakers. Speaker power rating is a rough guideline.
Efficiency rating of speaker is the generally overlooked, and easily as important if not more so than power rating.
A more efficient speaker will produce a larger volume for a given amount of power. Important if you’re looking for the most volume for a given power. A more efficient speaker does not necessarily mean better quality sound.
2. Size of the vintage speaker:
One of the key considerations before buying a pair of vintage speakers is speaker size. For instance, a large woofer will generate a fuller sound bass.
Speakers which have three cones (i.e., a woofer, tweeter, and mid,) will create a greater sound compared to other speakers which only have two cones.
A lot of speakers also have power recommendations printed on the back panel. Remember that speakers can be damaged if they are under- or over-powered.
There are a lot of different speaker’s sizes of cones available in the market.
An important factor to be consideration is the amplifier. No matter if you are looking for a separate amp, an integrated amp, or stereo receivers, make sure that you always determine the total power available first.
Keep in mind that smaller amps have 15 to 30 watts, while larger models have over 100. For most people an amp in the lower-watt range will be adequate for their needs.
Ensure that you also check out the amp’s THD, which refers to quantity of the amp will potentially impact signal quality. You want to choose an amp that has very low THD, meaning that you get better signal quality
