Hi, does anyone know where I can find the numbers for the Pioneer PW-385A? I have a couple of them I picked up years ago and I'm thinking of using them in an econowave box I'm building. I've searched up and down the Internet with no luck so far. Thanks, CC

According to this post http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/36773-needed-specs-pioneer-15-a.html those are from CS-99 speakers. However, it is also stated they have "FB" on them which would make them CS-99a speakers. Do they have the FB markings on the cones? If so they are designed for a sealed enclosure. I would guess you are looking at 3-4cuft for a cabinet. According to Oaktree http://www.oaktreevintage.com/Pioneer_Speaker_Parts.htm those are for the CS-99a. If you base on that system you'll have something to go on.

Thanks Copa1934, that gives me something to play with. Since they were free I can afford to play with them a bit.
