    EPI 100V with Cambridge Soundworks woofers?

    Hey guys, thanks for the info and responses. I did sell these to a local guy who wanted to experiment with different drivers he has collected and he was looking for that size cabinet...so I don't know but I doubt they would have suited well in the long run. Thanks again Tom

    EPi 100 woofers?

    SteveW: Are the foam surrounds intact? I would search for an original EPI 8" woofer from those Model 100's and either re-foam it if needed or buy one that has been refoamed. They show up on ebay all the time for reasonable prices. Those woofers were matched well w/ the inverted dome tweet for a very nice sound.
  3. Hi I acquired a pair of EPI 100V w/ EPI Gold Ring Tweeters with these 8" Cambridge Soundworks Woofers. No apparent crossover mods have occurred. Round magnet woofers are stamped Cambridge Soundworks and dated April 5, 1995. No part number or serial numbers. I've always thought the 8" square magnet (EPI/Genesis/Epicure) were OK to interchange but my question is ...are these CS woofers suitable for this speaker and crossover to work as the speaker was designed? any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks Glitch. I think either would work? I did test the " bad" one and tested direct from my receiver and no sound. I did not disconnect it from the crossover because it's soldered and I don't know how to solder. When I touched the speaker wire for my receiver to the Woffor clips no sound but the Tweeter worked fine through it that way. So I think I'll switch woofers and see if it works that way just to eliminate a crossover problem. Does that make sense?

    Well...one dead woofer. The other speaker sounds excellent. Now I need to find a replacement woof. There are no part numbers on the driver. There are a couple of drivers on eeebay, both listed for the L520 but they have different part numbers. 206-0326 and 206-0323. ?

    And they do have rubber surrounds. The best part...the gentleman was getting rid of his vinyl collection and I bought over 100 albums! Some real classics...

    I have found out more...they are indeed an earlier model. I did aquire them this afternoon. Other than the cabinets, they appear to be in very good shape and at first listen, I think I'm going to love these. They are vinyl covered and have fabric grills. Drivers look very good. Thank you all for the advice, VERY much appreciated.

    Seller is asking $100 but agreed to $60. I thought 100 was a bit high...

    I've never owned any ADS speakers but am very curious to hear and play around. Have an opportunity to buy a pair of L520 for $60. I've only seen some photos of them on the CL ad. Cabs are in rough shape, chipped corners and what looks like peeling vinyl. I have read that the cabs are wood veener. Did they make these w vinyl coverings? Looks to have cloth grills, not metal. Maybe an earlier version? Am going to look in a couple of days so hopefully some can comment. Opinions? Decent value? Thx Tom

    Looking for a set of KLH speakers

    I have a beautiful pair of Model Fives that I had JKent rebuild the crossovers on. I have never heard a more pleasant sounding speaker and I've owned dozens of pairs including AR, Advent, older Infinity, vintage polk, klipsch, etc. They are just amazing for me. And very attractive. JKent did a great job and was very helpful in my restoration process. They will be willed to my son when I die!
  14. SOLD 8/7/17 pair Snell XA 90ps speakers for sale. Black. Includes original remote. In very good cosmetic condition. There is an issue w/ amplifier that powers the 2 lower subs on one of the speakers. The other speaker is fine. Pick up in Columbia, SC Offers: tomknow86@gmail.com
