SOLD: Cizek Model One Loudspeakers, Unique Design
Cizek Audio Systems was based in Massachusetts in the 1970s and 1980s, including at one point having a manufacturing center in Lawrence, steps away from HHA's current home. Founded by Roy Cizek, who apprenticed at Acoustic Research, the company's first product took a unique approach to speaker design. The Model One used foam padding as a means to reduce acoustic diffraction as well as a series of front panel mounted switches to modify the system "Q." Q is a unitless factor that mathematically summarizes the speaker's damping characteristics and sound quality in one number. The Model One crossover gives the user the ability to adjust system Q to best account for room acoustics and placement.
This pair of System One speakers has been completely restored. New grilles were CNC machined and covered in new cloth; the crossovers were fitted with new capacitors; woofers have been refoamed for longevity; and the anti diffraction damping material has been refitted in the spirit of Roy Cizek's original intent.
These speakers sound clean, detailed, and robust.
Demos are possible at our showroom in Lawrence, MA with COVID precautions in place.
