I'm looking for any info available on these (when made, MSRP when new, which series, etc. Pair #1: I bought these earlier this year ($400). They are black laquer, Silver editions in perfect shape. They have the silver crinkled ribbons and no adjustments on the back, just one pair of speaker hookups and a fuse. They sound great. Pair #2: I just bought these ($600). They are the larger ones, Originals, I believe, and are also black and in perfect shape. They have 4 12" woofers and 2 30" ribbons per side. They have gold smooth ribbons and nothing on the back except a single pair of speaker hookups (no fuse or adjustments). Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bob
1st off Welcome !!!...
The speakers you have are obviously Carver SIlver Amazing Loudspeakers (smaller ones), and Carver Amazing Loudspeakers (larger ones)
MSRP for the silvers was around $2,400 and the original Amazings were $1,600-2,000 when new.
MFG date, ASL 1986-1988 $1,600.00 - Silvers 89-93 $2,400.00
At the botom of the ribbon, there is a date stamped in red ink on the bottom end of the driver.

The Silvers are one of two models of Silvers that were available. You have the standard Silver ALS and not the MKIV version. I believe that the Silvers came out about the same time as the Platinum ALS as they were both made a little easier to drive than the original ALS's.
James has my disc with all of the Carver information on it, so I can't help you with the actual dates but I can tell you that both of them are close to twenty years old...give or take 3 or so years.
The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
