1964 RCA VFE 03 Record Player Speaker

I ended out with one of these and need a speaker. The good speaker tests at 37.7 ohms, so if I understand right it would be about 42 ohms. Seems goofy to me. Does anyone have a schematic?

No name on the turntable top or bottom. No tubes. no radio, just a record player. Its like a childrens player but is walnut veneered and on spindle legs and looks nice. Im surprised the cabinet is so nice with such a mediocre changer.

Here is a similar one http://www.lotnut.com/app/item.html;...0-0702490f4c46

I did some research and I think the Sams folder is number 765-11. Maybe that will help people search. Thanks!

i dont necessarilly need an exact replacement. Im more wanting to know what ohms it is from a schematic before I dig thru my parts. But I will get a pic of speaker on tomorrow. Thanks!

IIRC, RCA speakers were something like 8-16-32ohms impedance.

That would be my guess, one of those, Im just hoping someone knows exact ohms as ive read its hard on other parts if its wrong.

Heres a pic of the speaker. The numbers on it are 961615-11 and 2746505.2 the - and . could be wrong of course.

Yes, Ill have a look at that for you. The higher (than 8 ohms) impedance speakers were used with early solid state amps that used certain germanium transistors.
