Loud Speaker Components Recalled
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Electro-Voice, Inc. has recalled EVX professional sound reinforcement loudspeakers built and shipped between July 31, 1987 and February 8, 1988. The loudspeaker components, model numbers EVX-150, EVX-156, EVX-180, EVX-184, EVX-1500 and EVX-1800 contain uninsulated lead wires and overly - long terminal lugs which may, during maximum excursion, ignite the carbon fiber/paper composite speaker cone. Approximately 65 speakers remain unaccounted for (as of June 28, 1988), sold mainly in New York City and northern California; the majority of these are said to have been sold to customers who took them out of the United States.
