How would you compare these to some of the more modern speakers in your shop? Fortunately, he was just getting ready to hook them up for the store's annual Garage Sale, so I heard them driven by a roughly watt-per-channel Dared tube amp -- more than enough power considering the speakers' high efficiency.

They were right behind the main screens. Sometimes we end up replacing the diaphragm on the compression driver attached to the horn. Very clean set and everything works.
