owlsplace Posted December 6, 2014 Report Share Posted December 6, 2014 From Wikipedia article:"Jensen Loudspeakers ceased production of their products in the late 1960s. The speakers remained heavily sought-after as replacements for amplifiers originally manufactured with Jensen speakers. Following that demand, SICA Altoparlanti began reproducing "reissues" of the Jensen speakers in 1996. These speakers are designed to be as close as possible to their original design.In 2008, SICA Altoparlanti began producing new speaker designs under the Jensen name. These speakers and the Jensen reissues are distributed in the United States by CE Distribution."Seems to me if anyone would be interested in reproducing classic AR drivers it would be this company. Anyone have any contacts in Italy?Some interesting history here. Jensen was a Danish immigrant who along with a partner developed the first loudspeaker in 1915 -- the Magnavox.There is a SICA site up in English with this tidbit of info:"In 1929, Jensen Company manufactured 60% of all speakers being made for independent radio producers."http://www.sica.it/en/products.html?page=shop.browse&category_id=19&parentCategory=2Roger Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
