It's a number 10. I know this because I just had to open some speakers
recently. But you could have also easily looked at the manual which is in the
warehouse section here.

WOW! You guys still using speakers? I only have one customer that will deal with them any more... And when those die that's the end of them there.

Still have one drive-in up here using them. They even moved their original RCA amplifiers to the new rack when they converted to digital.

Just a novelty though. They've had FM for a long time.

Jack,

Are those RCA amplifiers the ones with 6146 output tubes in them?

Loved to see the screen grids glisten when there was a short on the field.

Both of the drive-ins we deal with have speakers plus FM. Some like the speaker novelty of the Drive-In plus those little glowing domes in the field.

At the Long d.i in Long Prairie,mn We still have 3 rolls of speakers in front, for a total of 94 plus FM. about 4 years back i got all the down lights working also. as i rebuild speakers i put longer 7 foot rubber cord on them. the ones in front get used a lot, people sit out on there lawn chairs and just use them . gives it that classic feeling.
