Up for sale are my crown jewel Selah RC4s with painstakingly beautiful enclosures.
The drivers used in these speakers are some of the finest. The midrange and the dual woofers are made by Seas of Norway costing about $250 each. The tweeter is a ribbon made by Fountek which is spectacular and does a perfect job of being articulate without being overly bright. The 12” subwoofers are made by Peerless of Denmark - they bring enough bass to shake the house while being fast, articulate and very musical. You will not need separate subwoofers with them. I am including a Dayton Audio HPSA-1000 (1000W) external subwoofer amplifier for the 12 inch woofers with the going price.
These speakers were purchased from Selah Audio with the deluxe crossovers. An assembled pair will cost $6,995 on Selah Audio’s website with the standard enclosure, but these are anything but standard. A little over a year was spent building them. The style and look was inspired by Sonus Faber of Italy. The cabinets are 1 ½ inches thick on all sides except the front baffle which is 3 ½ inches thick. There are no parallel surfaces in the enclosure thus there are no standing waves. The enclosures are made out of Baltic birch plywood with MDF for the front baffle and they are massive. The enclosures are wrapped with two-ply paper backed maple veneer dyed blood red and finished with several layers of Deft Nitrocellulose Lacquer. The front baffle is covered in genuine leather to create a stunning look that is only outdone by the sound.
Why am I selling these beauties? I don't have a room big enough for them. They are currently choked in a 15 x 11 ft office room. They are begging for a bigger home to shine.
Local pickup is preferred in Oregon as each weigh speaker weighs 150 lbs +/-. If shipping is required a freight carrier will be used and the speakers will need to be professional packed. Please contact me with any questions and thanks for your interest!

The RC4 represents a truly full-range speaker that leaves nothing to be desired and competes with other systems selling for 4-5x the cost. Each driver was selected to give the maximum performance possible.
Operating as a 4-way speaker, the drivers include a powered 12" side-mounted subwoofer, dual 8" woofers, a 5" midbass, and ribbon tweeter. Each driver is operated in a very linear fashion to keep distortion low and maintain smooth vertical and horizontal coverage.
To cover the critical midrange area we chose the Seas Excel 5" magnesium cone midbass. The stiff cone yields amazing detail and allows a higher crossover point to optimize the tweeter's operating range. The lower midrange and upper bass are handled by two Seas 8" Excel magnesium cone woofers. Why two drivers? The cone area is equal to a 12" woofer so a great deal of air can be moved for exceptional dynamics without sacrificing speed and detail.
The bottom octave is anchored by a Peerless 12" XXLS subwoofer.
The top octaves are handled by a Fountek CD3.0 ribbon tweeter. The ribbon has very smooth and extended response with excellent detail.
