The David 5001 wedge shaped speakers where well liked as monitor speakers giving a quality of performance that belied their size (17cm height, 11 cm wide, 11cm deep). They weigh in at 1646 grams each.

The David 5001 included wall brackets which could be mounted vertical or horizontally and bolted on the back shelf of a car.
The pair shown here were used with a Blaupunkt SM21 Frankfurt FM radio and with Uher CR240 and CR160 cassette recorders.
The Nextel finish gave a warm soft touch feel but does not age well with the surface becoming slightly rough and wears off.
Speaker cables are connected by spring clips.
Small speakers lack the bass of larger book shelf speakers but these diminutive speakers don't disappoint and nor do you feel that you have to switch over to using larger speakers to enjoy the music or radio drama.
