Looking for a high-quality, lightweight live monitor system for your keyboard rig? If you value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps! Will probably contact Audioloudspeakers first. The MK2 mentioned above actually has a smaller coil driver that is no more reliable. Somewhere in it’s life it had been dropped and the magnet sheared off one and the other driver the magnet had shifted resulting in a solid cone. Review by Ian Sherwood.

This is made posible by the SRC unit which allows you to use an amplifier too highly rated for the speakers, leaving the SRC controllers to protect the drivers – Celestion claim the SRC units make the cabinets “virtually indestructible”. Anyone familiar with the problems of regular gigging will recognise the importance of portability. While it’s still only Victor Kiam who can claim to have “liked it so cflestion I bought the celedtion, I can’t overstate how much Celestion’s system impressed me.
After spending almost 30mins ripping off layer after layer of bubble and shrinkwrap started to become suspicious of a heavy object loose inside of one of the cabinets.
The SRC1 is actually an equaliser and thermal cutout that also filters out any low-frequency transients that would otherwise damage the drivers.

Will probably contact Audioloudspeakers first. SR1 drivers have always been very prone to magnet slip.

It looks like this was dispatched with the damaged driver. Had this happened in the vertical position the coil would have been sliced in half Although I can’t claim to have tested either model of speaker cabinet in a studio monitoring capacity, I’d celedtion the response being too coloured for such applications. As a footnote to this review, I will personally be investing in a pair of SR3s SR1s being out of my price range at present and an SRC1 controller to allow me to obtain the monitoring levels I need.
All the features of keyboard sounds except deep bass, which finds its way back from the front-of-house PA are well represented – bright pianos, icy digital synths, analogue filter sweeps I’m not saying they can do it but it’s worth a phone call to ask.
Celestion SR1/SR3 Monitor System (MT Dec 90)
Nothing if not thorough, Celestion. If felestion value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps! Can be repaired, but will also need a re-cone.
Looking for a high-quality, lightweight live monitor system for your keyboard rig? I have got six SR1 cabinets here ex install–give me a few days and I will see what drivers are working in them or if there will be any spare drivers. Where Celestion offer an SR2 Sub-bass unit for PA applications, the SR1s alone provided an ideal balance of volume and clarity for serious keyboard monitoring. Tried out the working cabinet on an 80w rms 80’s amp and it was loud and clean. I’m in the process of contacting the eBayer but I’m torn here because it looks like er1 coil wasn’t affected and that this could be savaged but at what cost?

Acoustically, i have never been able to tell the difference between the MK1 and 2 despite the wizzer cone on the MK2 Edited by csg – 28 February at 9: It might even serve as a full PA for a low-key acoustic band, but it really wasn’t up to the row we produce onstage. Somewhere in it’s life it had been dropped and the magnet sheared off one and the other driver the magnet had shifted resulting in a solid cone.
Previous Article in this issue Communique. I testify that it works. It’s highly unlikely this happened in transit as the speaker wires were not connected to the chassis terminal and they could not have accidentally slipped out regardless the impact.
