MODIFICATIONS: NONE THAT I KNOW OF. GO TO LANSING HERITAGE SITE FOR MORE DETAILS.

HISTORY: FOR MANY YEARS, THIS SPEAKER GRACED A WEALTHY HOME IN TIBURON, CA. WELL TENDED UNTIL HOUSE WAS SOLD AND THE UNIT WAS OPEN TO BE RECYCLED OR DESTROYED. THE PRESENT OWNER SENSED ITS VALUE, AND HAS HAD IT CHECKED IT OUT FOR SOUND (EXCELLENT, AMAZING)AND THE ENCLOOSURE FOR VISUAL BEAUTY. HOUSED IN SANTA ROSA, CA. AT PRESENT

COMMENTS: NO PROBLEMS

THIS UNIT WAS NEVER TOURED
