Pioneer PAX 20E.

Beautiful alnico loudspeaker driver from the 1960s. Similar in approach to classic drivers of the same period by Altec and Coral. Pioneer produced a whole family of such coaxial drivers, most of which I own – photographs and descriptions to follow.

    I have these speakers and they sounded simply amazing. The electrosstatic tweeters are so real and fast. The alnico woofer has a wonderful midrange that cannot be duplicated by todays modern materials. Its all about tone, and these are just so natural.
