    The Fane 100w Cresendo A that was produced in the late 60s-early 70s have a frequency response of 30hz-16,000Hz. 70 Resonant Frequency/fs

    These speakers are still used by Dave Gilmour, and were also used extensively with Pink Floyd.

    Everyone remember seeing the WEM cabinets Gilmour/Floyd used/uses?? Loaded with Fanes.

    Rawson Sparfield makes all but an exact repro of these speakers called he Starfinder. They are even magnatized on the same machine. Are very expensive.

    20,000 Gauss. JBL E120 is 13,500 Gauss. 20lbs Magnet. Is heavier than an either a JBL E120, or EV 12L

    Cresendo A was the first 100w x 100db 12 inch speaker. JBL D120F at the time was 60w, and the Altec 417C was 75w. Fane also has Pulsonic cones...

    Complete Fane speaker set up in WEM cabinets. I believe Bigger cabs have the 15 inch Cresendo.
