    Posted: 20 April 2017 at 7:52pm
Hi there,
I have a pair of MEGA London vintage speakers.  I can't find anything out about them online - looking to sell the speakers as they're such big units...but not sure what price they'd be.  Does anyone know anything about MEGA? 

The speakers work but it doesn't even have the model name on the speakers! I think they're 1970s.
These are the speakers - gumtree ad from last month but they didn't sell:
https://www.gumtree.com/p/speakers-monitors/mega-london-brand-pa-speakers.-1970s/1219846350

Any help would be great!! 
Thanks!

Wrong forum. If you're intent on selling, just start a new thread in the "stuff for sale" section

take some pics, upload them here or somewhere else, and include them in your post. Otherwise people can't be arced…...

if you bother to google or use the search function, key word "mega of london" you can find a thread on this forum. Consider posting a few more messages to unlock private messaging (there is a minimum post count, something like 5 or 10 posts). Then you can receive PMs from members.

missed the gumtree ad before my previous post, just had a look at it.... provided both cabs really do work, and you're asking a hundred quid each, you should be able to do a quick sale......

Oops sorry, delayed reply! No, they're not sold yet - does anyone know how much they're worth or what model they are even?

Cant find out any info about them so would be interested to know!

Mega made a whole range of pro-audio cabinets around the late 70's,very early 80's. These ones you have where mainly stagefill or small main PA.
Originally would have had some high quality drivers inside,but even a quick look it seems they have a pair of miss-matched bass drivers,which is entirely predictable after 35 years.
What are they worth? Not a great deal,probably worth more in drivers than as a whole.
Be seeing you.

They are Mega FR212 cabinets but they would not have any of the flightcasing surrounding them at present--does the cabinet come out of the case or has the cabinet been completely fitted with the bits and pieces.
Originally they were a tip and roll cabinet with just two wheels on the back bottom cut away corner and were fitted with two long coil linen surround 12" ATC PA75 bass drivers along with a 9" ATC for mid and an RCF TW101 driver on the horn flare along with a built in three way passive Xover.
As Ian has said above, it looks like they may have been retro fitted with a variety of different drivers during their life and because they were never a very popular cabinet, in todays market they are not really worth a lot of money--we had three pairs of them in the seventies that went out on hire rigs as sidefills as they were never any good as a FOH cabinet.

Dont think they come out of the cases, certainly not easily. Cant find the covers of the cases which is a bit annoying.

Thanks very much though guys - thats all really helpful!

Add some reasonable photo's of them here if you'd be so kind, although they are not original it would be nice to have a record/photo of them for other people. :-)

Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!
