Up for sale is a classic pair of Infinity RS III speakers. The RS III uses two 8” polypropylene woofers, each in its own sealed enclosure, one 5.25” polypropylene midrange and Infinity’s EMIT ribbon tweeter all in a stunning oak cabinet.

These things were basket cases when I found the empty cabinets at garage sale, no drivers and no grills, and beat up.

Over the past couple of years the cabinets have been stripped, lightly sanded a couple of chips repaired, oak finished in three coats of tung oil, front and back baffles repainted in flat black and the footers got a fresh coat of flat black as well. While I had them tore down, I added an internal brace between the front and back of the cabinet to increase stiffness.

While I was working on the cabinet I source EMIT’s as well as original midranges and woofer, re-foamed the woofers and updated the crossover with new gold plated five way binding posts, cleaned the mid and tweeter controls out while I was in there and tested all the caps for uf and ESR, all checked out.

After all that I managed to get the dimensions for the original grills and rebuilt the grills from scratch, painted them and covered them in new grill cloth.

And what you see in the pictures is the result, a pair of original RS III’s in as like new condition as you’re going to find.

This set is mirror imaged and consecutively numbered.
