Walnut colour 2-way sealed box, infinite baffle design

Grille covers cleaned, some screw holes filled

Well tested prior to listing : these are classic vintage speakers featuring clean tight bass and a quality dome tweeter

HiFi Review [abridged] :
By any standard, the Celestion DL8 proved itself to be a very fine speaker. Measurements of a speaker, of course, give only a few clues to its sound quality

Its sound was superbly balanced, with a solid bass that belied its small size, yet without undue upper-bass emphasis or boxiness. The middles and highs were seamless and so well integrated that we simply heard the total sound and gave up trying to hear the minor response variations that our microphone had detected

We made a special effort to be aware of the DL8's spatial properties ("imaging," if you prefer). Like any conventional front-firing box system, its sound stage is essentially confined to the space between the speakers, but it manages to fill that part of the room with a well-defined sound stage, mostly in the listening room, but sometimes including the space immediately behind the wall, in testing :

The DL8 speakers sounded beautiful, with no detectable compression of dynamics and a surprisingly visceral effect from the larger drums. The amplifier power during this time averaged perhaps 10 watts per channel, with frequent peaks to well over 350 watts! This is something we would not recommend with any small speaker, including these, but it certainly says something about their construction and quality
