  • Rodgers Trio 321 Speaker Suggestions

    Hello all,
    I'm looking for suggestions for speakers for my Trio 321, specifically the main voices. I have the Tibia going through a Leslie 760, but don't have an ideal setup for the main channel.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    My best recommendation for speakers for any Rodgers analog instrument is Allen HC-12 or 14/15 speakers. The have smooth, wide range frequency response and handle the bass with no problems. Usually available used at reasonable prices, too.

    In a way, Rodgers reflected the same requirement by offering Klipsch LaScala speakers for use with their analog organs--smooth, wide range response with good bass output. Though LaScala speakers are more expensive (even used), larger. But they are more efficient. But the Allen speakers are reasonably efficient, too.

      Thanks for the suggestions. Does anyone have any they'd like to sell? The only ones I could find were on ebay, and they were too far away to be reasonable. Shipping would be more than the speakers.

        What happened to the Rodgers W-3 cabinet that originally handled the main & pedal voices? They always worked very well.

          Mine didn't come with a W-3. It came with an ML-702 combo unit that had a small styrofoam leslie on one side for the Tibia and a speaker system for the main. Didn't have a lot of oomph, so I'm trying to upgrade.

          What is the W-3 cab like? Anyone have any info? Perhaps one they'd be willing to sell?

            If by "oomph" you mean volume, have you tried adjusting the volume settings in the organ. The W3 is a rather large speaker cabinet (about 24x24x30 high) with a 2-way speaker system consisting of one 15 inch woofer and a JBL bullet tweeter. It also has a passive radiator. It's not a great speaker cabinet, but is certainly loud.
