Hi all I have picked up a Philco model H-1916 console made in 1960 0r 59.
I will be restoring this and do not have the 36-1674 electrostatic speakers.
looks like there very hard to find.
This has a very interesting output wiring setup I am anxious to get working.
Does any one out there have a pair of these speakers?
if not what's the best way to incorporate standard speakers to this circuit?
Sam's set 484 has schematic's

Can you provide a link to more information on this unit? An online schematic? Perhaps Egg will step in if you cant locate anything.

Meanwhile here are some possibilities. I would guess the things to look for are high sensitivity and low crossover frequency. The cheaper tweeters may actually work better because they match up better with a Philco sort of system.

It appears that the remote speakers had a 2 x 10" midrange as well as the electrostatic tweeter and crossover, so I assume you only have the center channel 12" woofer. May be easiest to connect some 4 Ohm full-range speakers and disconnect the woofer. Note that the two channels are out-of-phase to sum in the woofer, then one has the wires crossed in the interconnect cable so that the remotes are in phase. The -600V on the speaker cable could give you a buzz... fortunately limited by a 2 meg resistor.
