HAven't heard a pair of these for a while, early plastic cab, bottom-ported speakers from HZ introduced when plastic speakers were a novelty.

No doubt aimed at the EV S200 market, I would say they have a superior 'big hifi' sound.

Definitely a 'Blast From The Past'. HZ International went through several ownerships post 1999  before finally giving up the ghost completely. Those HZ 500s were rather nice sounding - as you say, aimed at the EV Stage 200 market but with a nicer and more extended top end (courtesy of 2 LeSon Niobium soft dome high frequency tweeters). If anyone is interested, I have the names of the owning companies since 1999 but the chap who designed them and was providing service/repairs finally stopped doing so in 2020 IIRC.

For sidefills, can we have two enormous things of a type that might be venerated as Gods by the inhabitants of Easter Island, capable of reaching volumes that would make Beelzebub soil his pants.
