That's not a reverb kit. It looks like the stereo speaker kit that should be sold with the 8-Track player he's also selling.

Reverbs were really cool, though. Typically they used a conventional front speaker, and a single rear speaker with an electronic delay on the sound, to give a concert hall effect. Often they included a control to adjust the amount of delay. Just when they were starting to be seen, though, stereo became a national craze, and by 1966 you could get a stereo 8-Track AM/FM radio in the Mustang.

Here's the speakers he's selling:

Reverbs also had a single 6x9 speaker because they were not stereo. Stereo killed reverb.

Funny you should say that, it's more or less true. I say that because the factory stereo in my 97 has reverb. (that's what the "DSP" button is)
I know what your saying. They also still use reverbs on eletric gutars. I was indeed refering to putting a special box on a mono radio to make it sound better.

Personally I think they are cool as all get out. I happen to have 3 Ford systems.

Impressive. That equals the total number of working reverbs I have seen in Ford cars. And I'm old enough to have seen them new.

Count me in for having another working one. Dad put it in his '66 coupe in 1968. I pulled it out and it's sitting on a shelf. Original wiring, switch, and speaker intact.
