Acoustat HY-BRID. This model was made in Italy around 1985. It was apparently the top model at 57”h w/s a 12”w panel & 8\' sub. Panel @ 4ohms and sub @ 3ohms. The transformer had twin speakers w/s a toroidal winding rated at 4000v and amps at 0.004 and 120v. It looks similar to the 1400 but has better specs. Could anyone identify? Thanks Jake.

If your speaker was manufactured by Acoustat - Italy, then it would have been manufactured much later, more like 1995. In 1985, Acoustat was a Division of The David Hafler Company, and located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA.

Your description does not sound like anything produced by Acoustat anytime during its US-ownership. Unfortunately, that is where my expertise ends. Can anyone else provide further information?
