They looked exactly like those ones. I was very surprised that yours were 18" so yes probably cut to suit a slightly smaller 18" than the 1850s.

yeah ken defo a 15 cut too fit,after having a closer look at grills etc can see where they have been modified from standard to avoid the driver hitting them,considering what they are and when they were built results were say "surprising" when fitted with 1850s,no rattles from cabs and very high spl with a very good attack for  18 scoops,will defo carry the 4 out soon to a dance enviroment(oxford hopfullyWink) to really see whats what with them,only things on the to do list are
add 36mm mouth bracing(always a good thing)
add a 18mm baffle on the front to see/hear any improvments,tho as they are the cone controll is exellent but always good to experimant,will post results as they unfold,cheers everyone for the info on this system ,also still got len's for sale,shamefull plug LOL

2 stacks of RSE ran in the "Red Lion" in Brentford for years on 5 Quad 50E's a side in a riser underneath which were similar to 303 but had TX output so could be connected in series to a variety of loads. this IIRC was the std amps used due to the ease of use and not requiring "Bridging" just series connections each did 50W rms so 2 just doubled the Voltage or 3 etc till you got the power you needed with all being fed a parallel signal. The Red Lion a long running Rock n Roll venue characterised by all the London Road Rats "Hogs" parked outside rather than them playing in the venue as you would find today I actually played on that system a few times just before it became an ordinary pub and is now McDonalds

thanks - interesting. But not actually an amp I know/remember/want, as Paulus's RSE system came with quite a different set up. It was 2 grey carpeted boxes each with 3 bridged quad 303's in them, along with an RSE custom electronic crossover and limiter in each that was innovation beyond belief in its day. Most of those are long gone as people broke them down for the quads which where instantly useable in other ways - and generally looked pretty fine because they had spent there working years bolted inside these carpeted boxes. You can imagine how much each weighed! anyway thanks

Guys - the RSE 600 system was 2 bass 15in (not sure but poss JBL D or K series) and te top box with the badly boxed lens. It was boxed that way to protect the lens in transit.

I remeber the Alex Harvey band having a rig. Sounded good.

Amps were quad 303's running in bridge mode - 100w at 8 ohms per amp.

Dont remember the mixer.
