  1. I found the answer to my own question and it was right here in the Classic Speaker Pages ; http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/IP.Board/index.php?showtopic=1424&hl=faulkner&fromsearch=1 Acoustic Speaker
  2. Somewhere on the web I thought I read that the New Allison Acoustics LLC of Kentucky was acquired by BIC and that Roy Allison was going to do some work for them. Does anyone know anything about this - or am I mistaken? This would have been a few years ago. Regards, Acoustic Speaker
  3. Thanks, Tom. Have you modified your Ones with the image control parts then? If yes, do you ever use the option? The only place I can position my Ones is on the narrow wall which is just over 11' wide. So if I keep the Ones 2' from each side wall and the Ones are 1' wide, this allows 5' between the Ones. If I move them farther from the sidewalls, then the spacing between gets even smaller of course. So I was thinking maybe I could use the image control and reduce the output toward the side walls - I really don't know what the recommended spacing for the Ones is. What spacings do you use? Maybe, I will have to consider Threes for this room. John A. Bergman
  4. Thanks for schematic. A couple of questions: is the resistor to the right of the "blue" tweeter actually 1/2 ohm? why did you remove the frequency contouring switches?
  5. I know I saw somewhere that there was a way to modify the Allison One crossovers so that some image control of the two panels could be used ala the IC-20. I believe that Roy himself came up with the modifications. Is this on this forum somewhere? Can someone point me to it or supply some info? I believe it was done with resistors and manual toggle switches. Thanks, John Bergman
  6. Thanks for reply. When you say "BTW, without these enhancements, the Alison speakers are probably a better bet for most people IMO. They will at least play the top octave of the audible spectrum. That's very important if you can hear it", I'm sure I can't hear it. But my idea was that the Allison drivers supposedly radiate the sound in a half hemisphere so that if you walked halfway around the speaker, you would hear what you were talking about - that is the sound would be the same on either side as the sound from the front. You couldn't walk behind the Allisons and hear the same sound, but because they are designed to be backed up against the wall or in a corner, the front and side sound should be reflected from the walls ala the Bose 901. So I would assume the Allison and Bose sound would be similar - but I don't know - I have heard the Allisons, but not the Bose 901s.
  7. My thanks, too, to soundminded for his reply. When I see a word like proprietary, I understand the secretive nature of explaining a function or use - especially if one is going to patent it or doesn't want another to steal the idea and patent it. If I understand soundminded correctly, the inherently low absolute vector distortion advantage disappears when the Bose 901 drivers start beaming at high frequencies. I believe that the Roy Allison drivers and speaker implementations also allow sound waves from a single instrument to arrive at the listener from a multitude of directions also - and his tweeters minimize the beaming. Do you agree or disagree soundminded?
  8. No, I did not know he was secretive - why would he be secretive on a forum where information on speakers is desired? I know. Ask him. I sent him an email, but no reply as yet. Maybe he IS hiding.
  9. I am new to this forum, but in scouting around, I think I saw where member "soundminded" modified his Bose 901 drivers or equalizer or something to improve the 901s. Can someone point me to where this information is in this forum?
  10. Looking for some opinions. I have a living room that is 12' wide and 15' long. One narrow end of the room is just a flat wall, the other narrow end of the room has a half wall divider and on the other side of the divider is an entryway and kitchen. So in effect a long sort of tunnel space. We would like to hear music anywhere in the living room part or kitchen. We will not have a dedicated listening seat so to speak. So my choices would be either the Allison 3s in the corners of the 12' closed wall or Bose 901s in the same place, but not in the corners. Any thoughts on either of these speakers in these postions?

  12. I am a new member to the classicspeakerpages. I have always been partial to Allison speakers. I have a pair of original Allison IC-10 speakers, a pair of the New Allison Acoustics Threes and a pair of the New Allison Acoustics Ones. I am also a member over on the Yahoo Allison group. Looking forward to sharing with this group also. John Bergman
