    Allison Nine and CD-9 funny story

    Using the balance control is a small compromise indeed! The drivers in the two versions are identical, and that’s really all that matters. Over the years, many changes occurred in the build of the Allison Midrange and Tweeter....most of those to protect the drivers from getting mashed in, but the raw performance remained the same. I use 3 pairs of Allisons in my Music/Movie system, and all the drivers, (except the woofers) have the factory protective screens. Bill

    Ha Ha...……………(you can tell them I say "hi") Even on my iPhone I could hear your tweeters ! That is a very "live" sounding room, with hard wood area rug and so on. (of course no critical listening evaluation.) With some hearing loss (or without) voices can become harder to stand out in such a reverberant field. Some acoustic panel treatment on the walls could help that. Bill

    Ok... I was able to view the front facing shot with the grill off. That is the correct tweeter. Those speakers look beautiful in that shot!

    Hello austingonzo, Hard to characterize the sound you’re getting....seeing the tweets just to be sure they are correct. The crossovers, if unaltered, should be fine with the original capacitors (very high quality). I m running all originals without issues. Are you certain both tweeters were operational?

    Someone from the Allison Speakers Yahoo! Group contacted me several months ago because there was a spirited discussion going on there involving the IC20’s. He said I was “missing out”, but I had too many problems with Yahoo (a shame, not the group itself) to go back there again. In lieu of the spam risk, there is (or was) a lot more Allison going on there, than here. Can you post a picture....I’m interested in seeing the tweeters in Your speakers. Bill

    Allison Nine and CD-9 funny story

    According to the Spec. sheet data, the newer (CD9) has slightly higher 90 db. SPL over the older version, that's rated at 87. So, the CD 9 SHOULD be the louder of the two. Yours is a somewhat negligible difference and even loudspeaker placement could have the other appear to play louder. Bill

    Allison Nine and CD-9 funny story

    I have both specs. here. Long time since I looked, and curious about the output difference. Are the EBay woofers OEM and matched? If not could easily account for the discrepancy. Bill

    ...Finaly got some Allison One's

    Hi Melvin, I saw some, on EBay within the last few weeks. Don’t know if they are still there but worth a look. Bill

    Where can I get a replacement for Allison CD-6 Tweeter

    The Allison 5 and Allison 7 pre-date the CD series, but all of them are 2 way 4” tweets that fit and work like the originals. There are more... The AL 110, 115 and AL 120 additionally

    Where can I get a replacement for Allison CD-6 Tweeter

    EBay is the best place to find one or a whole system to use for parts. An A4, 5,7, can also be used. Bill

    Re cone CD-6 Tweeters

    No. Some end users have had luck (as I have also) resoldering the leads, or repairing those leads that corroded under the mesh screens (if so equipped). but the voice coil, not a chance. Bill

  14. Chris, When you do that, try to have a second pair of gaskets at the ready. Those new woofers fit ok in the newer cabinet from reincarnated Allison Acoustics, but I heard from others that installing a pair in your cabs has the magnets banging into each other for lack of clearance. Supposedly doubling up the gasket solves that. Maybe that’s why yours are how they are (the other guy didn’t know?) Bill

    Using AR speakers in a home theater?

    Well then, you would HATE what’s going on in my living room! You reminded me of when I was still living at home and my gear was in the basement, and my Dad’s easy chair was right above me on the main floor. When the bass got cranking, so did his foot to the floor pounding the “turn it down” signal. Bill
