X32 Horn columns

Another recent (Feb. 2016) acquisition is this pair of X32 horn columns. Each X32 contains 3 Celestion T1360 (MH1000) horn units along with a built-in crossover. Primarily designed for use in conjunction with the WEM 4×12 “C” PA columns. The “C” columns had more emphasis on the bottom end, unlike the “A” and “B” models and so the X32 ¬†was a perfect partner for them. ¬†These were probably made in the early 1970s.

The first pics show the X32s exactly as they were when I acquired them and, as you can probably see, they need a lot of work.

As I have a pair of these cabs and I worked on one at a time, I can show some before and after pics. Here are a couple to start with.
