  1. Wow the PALs at that link are gorgeous. Definitely the right woofers. I didn't consider that it had been reconed. That makes more sense. When I opened up the grill, it looked like that. It appears the foam has just disintegrated over time.
  2. Hi Everyone, I bought these PALs in December from the original owner. I just noticed that one is missing a woofer. I don't want to get involved in sourcing replacements, and I'd like to just sell them. I'm a big Advent fan, and I'd really prefer for them to fall to someone who appreciates them and can fix them up, so I'm listing them here. I turned them on very briefly, for about 10 seconds each. The green light comes on, you can hear both amps humming gently, then they click (similar the sound my receiver makes when the input is engaged), then light static comes from the tweeters. $100 takes them. I'm located just outside of NYC. A few pictures are below, but the google photos link has a total of 22. Best, Charlie https://photos.app.goo.gl/CjChSFzHbKS4qHn72
  3. Personally, the short answer is that I'm not sure, but I'd bet yes. Advent used the metal frame woofer starting with the New Large Advent (NLA) around 1977 through the 5002/5012 until about 1985; into the Jensen years. The woofer might have undergone some small changes, but from the Advents I've owned they look the same, and according to the various refoam kits, they take the same foam. So they're similar, to say the least. This leads me to believe that the woofer used in the Powered Advent would be the metal frame version. All the pictures I've seen of the system seem to use the metal frame woofer. Examining the system that I bought, the one woofer that I have looks a bit different from the standard NLA metal frame woofer. It doesn't have the tell-tale ridges that run along the circumference. I can't find any other woofers online that look like this one, so I assume that the previous owner ordered a replacement. I would bet that the correct PAL system uses the standard metal NLA woofer. I attached some pictures of my system below.
  4. I'm just outside of NYC, although I'm willing to send the woofers anywhere in the U.S. for the best job possible.
  5. Hi Everyone, Longtime reader, first comment. I finally got my hands on a nice pair of Powered Advents. I've been debating myself for about a month on whether I should do the refoam myself, but ultimately, I'm too nervous and I'd like these to be perfect, cost (almost) no object. Does anyone have a recommendation on who I should send the woofers to? Thank you for your help, and thanks to this community in general. I've learned a lot from you guys over the years. -Charlie

  7. This is very helpful, thank you tvdantv. I also recently acquired a pair of T1030s with one blown tweeter. Just ordered a T930 series II as a replacement!
