Inside a Fisher XP-9C

The grills aren't easy to get off! This is the home-madest looking speaker I have ever seen to be a commercial product. After refoam they've got a lot more bass than some 15"s I have heard. I have read that they are voiced for classical music but I can tell you they are a mighty fine rock speaker!

I bought 4 of them! I don't know why. All with rotted foam...



Clamp-on magnet!





With all those drivers you need a lot of crossover...

Fisher XP-9c. I have a pair of these which needs new foam surrounds too. Can you tell me where you purchased the foam? Not sure if these are an odd size 15'. After refoaming, how long did it take for the woofers to loosen up? Also, curious about the sound of the tweeters, and midrange. Any speaker you would compare these too?

The bass is punchy, but good. Maybe that will change as they break in. They're big and they fill the room without turning up the volume much. Great for rock and bluegrass, I haven't listened to much else yet. They sound like what I remember Cerwin Vegas sounding like when I was in college. Mids and highs sound just right. The old surrounds had angle edges, so that's what I got from Simply Speakers. They were a little big and wouldn't lay down flat, so I cut them tangentially and overlapped just a bit. Simply Speakers glue sets up very fast!

Those are nice. As fas as cosmetics behind the grills klh and ar are even worse. I love fisher's but most people dont. I have a single/orphan xp-9 with a spare set of grills. I also have the xp-10's. Great score.
