Heco 120 S Bookshelf Speakers 4 ohm?
I'm Trying to put together a cheap system for a spare room.
I've been offered a pair of Heco 120 S Bookshelf speakers (around 10 yrs old) but can find very little about this model on the net, though I understand Heco make some reasonable kit.. Anyone come across this model and know if they are any good? I'm a bit worried because they are described as 4 ohms but I'd like to drive em with an old Technics SU-V2 amp like this one http://www.vintagetechnics.info/integrated/suv2.htm that I have gathering dust in the loft, but not sure if this would end up cooking the amp? Also not sure if the price is fair he's asking £45 for the speakers but would probably budge a little.
I bought a pair of Heco 4000s in 1971 and they're still going strong, now being used by my daughter. I also have a pair of little Hecos (forgotten which number) in my workshop. Fine little 'speakers for the size.
As to the amplifier, if it's for a spare room, and you're not going to be having too many parties in there, I should think it will be OK. Amps of that vintage are somewhat current limited compared with today's amps, so it will run out of current into 4 ohms if played very loud. At normal volumes, I can't see it being a problem.
