  1. GENTLEMAN, MY ADVENT BROTHERS: LOOKING FOR ANY CRAFTSMEN THAT HAVE ACCOMPLISHED A SET OF CABINETS BUILT WITHIN THEIR WORK SHOP, PLEASE??? I AM NEEDING THE BLUE PRINTS FROM YOUR BUILD, FOR MY MOST RECENT FINDINGS OF TWEETERS, WOOFERS AND CROSSOVERS MINUS THE CABINETS. ANY PICTURES OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHED GOALS WOULD BE ALSO AN ADRENALINE RUSH!!! THE STASH THAT I HAVE IS MADE UP OF ALL OLA COMPONENTS. PLEASE!!! IF YOU HAVE ANY LEADS ON A SET OF PLANS THAT MAYBE YOU COULD SHARE WITH ME, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT BUILT YOUR OWN CABINETS, THAT WOULD BE GREAT!!! I APPRECIATE ALL THE INFORMATION THAT I CAN ACQUIRE WITH DIRE GRATIS TO YOUR EFFORTS IN DIRECTING ME WITH MY GOALS!!! HAVE A GREAT LABOR DAY AND PLEASE, KEEP THE FLOW OF THE MUSIC ALWAYS TOO BE SHARED!!! THANKS!!! "ITCHIJO"
  2. GENTLEMAN: I AM CURIOUS TO HEAR WHAT WOULD BE NEEDED TO DO A CONVERSION FROM THE EUROPEAN VOLTAGE, TOO THE USA VOLTAGE ON A TECHNICS SL-1200MK2 TURNTABLE??? EVEN THOUGH THE TURNTABLE HAS THE ABILITY TO BE SWITCHED FROM THE EUROPEAN VOLTAGE TOO THE USA VOLTAGE, THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAS THE TURNTABLE IN DIRE NEED OF A REBUILDING. THESE TURNTABLES HAVE BECOME A COLLECTORS ADDICTION AND THE PARTS ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE OF A HARD FIND, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE PRODUCTION OF THEM ENDED IN 2010. I AM FINDING MORE OF THE EUROPEAN MODELS IN A BASKET CASE SITUATION AND NEEDING QUITE A BIT OF REFURBISHING. THE USA MODELS WERE A MUCH BETTER DESIGN AND BUILD, COMPARED TO THEIR FOREIGN COUSINS. I AM THINKING THAT IF I COULD ACQUIRE A USA VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER WITH THE COMPLETE WIRING HARNESS AND A/C USA ELECTRICAL PLUG, THAT WOULD BE THE HEAVY TASK FOR MY OBJECTIVES. BUT, I AM NEEDING TO KNOW WHAT OTHER COMPONENTS THAT I MIGHT NEED TO FULFILL MY GOAL??? ANY INPUT ON MY PROJECT AND EDUCATED GUIDANCE WOULD BE OUTSTANDING AND GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! THANK YOU AND KEEP THE GROOVE OF THE MUSIC NEVER ENDING!!! "ITCHIJO"
  3. I AM LOOKING FOR ANY ASSISTANCE WITH THE NEEDS TO FULFILL MY PART LIST??? DEALING WITH THE TECHNICS SL-1200MK2 TURNTABLE AND NEED THE OWNERS MANUAL AND PARTS FROM PLATTER MAT TO HINGES AND DUST COVER TO HEAD SHELL, CARTRIDGE AND STYLUS. ALSO ANY INFORMATION ON RESTORATION AND CUSTOM WORK, AS IN PAINT!!! ANY INFORMATION ON AFTER MARKET FEET THAT COULD GIVE A MUCH BETTER STABILITY AND CLASSIC LOOK. ALL INFO OR LEADS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! THANKS AND KEEP YOUR "GROOVE ON" "ITCHIJO"

STAND AT ATTENTION WHEN THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER PLAYS!!! ENJOY, MY DIEHARD ADVENT BROTHER!!! "GRUNT ITCHIJO"
  5. GENTLEMAN: QUESTION ON THE TESTING OF OLA WOOFERS THAT NEED TO BE REFOAMED, THE OWNER HAS SAID THE TESTING RESULTS GAVE NOTHING BUT STATIC IN THE TEST. IS THERE A SIGN THAT SAYS TO AVOID THIS PURCHASE, OR IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE TESTED WOOFERS WHERE NOT TESTED USING THE CROSSOVERS??? CORRECT ME PLEASE, IF I AM WRONG!!! SHOULD THE TESTING SHOULD HAVE BEEN USING THE CROSSOVERS, AND NOT JUST HOOKING SPEAKER WIRE FROM HIS RECEIVER TO THE WOOFERS??? THE RESULTS WERE NOT SHOWN AS IN USING A VOLT / OHMS UNIT IN THE TESTING. HE CLAIMS THAT THE TWEETERS WERE SOLD AND MAYBE EVEN THE CROSSOVERS, WHICH I AM NOT SURE. BUT HIS EXPLANATION OF THE SETUP WAS ALL FROM A MATCHED SPEAKERS SET THAT THE CABINETS WERE TRASH. SO!!! I ASK PLEASE OF ANY INPUT YOU CAN GIVE ME TOO DECIDE TO PASS ON THIS OFFER OR NOT. THE WOOFERS ARE AT A DISTANCE TO GET THERE FOR A DEEPER REVIEW. THANKS!!!
  6. GENTLEMAN, BELATED HAPPY EASTER!!! I AM IN NEED OF OLA WOOFERS THAT ARE SQUARED MAGNET. THE SECOND DESIGNED WOOFERS WITH OUT THE WOOD RING. IF NEEDING REFOAMED, THAT IS OKAY, BUT NOTHING BEYOND THAT!!! PLEASE CHECK YOUR STASH OF EXCESS PARTS AND SEE IF YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO MAKE A SALE. ALSO ANY PROTRUDING TWEETERS EARLIER MODEL, PLEASE??? HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE DOING BUSINESS SOON, THANKS!!!
  7. GENTLEMAN: BELATED HAPPY EASTER!!! MY QUESTION IS WHETHER OR NOT THE TWO DIFFERENT COLORS OF FRIED EGG TWEETERS ARE EQUAL IN COMPARISON TO PERFORMANCE??? PLEASE, ANY TESTING OR ACTUAL USAGE ON YOUR BEHALF, WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU!!!

    OLA WALNUT CABINETS MODIFIED!!!

    GENTLEMAN: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ON SUNDAY 01/07/2018!!! MY NEW CHALLENGES ARE HAVING TOO DEAL WITH A MODIFIED SET OF OLA WALNUT CABINETS THAT HAVE BEEN PORTED IN THE RIGHT REAR OF THE CABINETS, WHEN LOOKING AT THEM FACE ON. PRETTY BIG TASK AT HAND TO MAKE THE CABINETS SEALED PROPERLY AND RESTORE THEM BACK TO OEM STATUS. LOOKING FOR ANY EXPERIENCED CRAFTSMANSHIP AND GUIDANCE FOR THIS PROJECT, PLEASE??? SHOULD THE CABINETS BE INTERNALLY SEALED AND JUST LEAVE THE ORIFICE EXPOSED LOOKING FROM THE REAR OF THE CABINETS??? OR SHOULD I GET INVOLVED WITH FILLING THE ORIFICE WITH A CUTOUT OF WOOD AND FILL IN WITH A WOOD FILLER WHILE ALSO SEALING THE INSIDE OF THE CABINETS??? I AM HOPING NOT TO HAVE TOO TRACK DOWN "BOB VEELA" FOR THIS PROJECT!!! ANY EXPERIENCE IN RESTORATION OF SPEAKER CABINETS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, AND THANKS!!!
  9. GENTLEMAN: MAY I WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! NOW I AM LOOKING TO BUY A MATCHED SET OF OLD SCHOOL WOOFERS WITH THE WOOD RING AND SQUARE MAGNET. NO PROBLEM IF THEY ARE IN NEED OF FOAM SURROUNDS, BUT NOTHING MORE THAN THAT!!! WOULD CONSIDER THE CROSSOVERS AND TWEETERS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A PACKAGE DEAL. PLEASE, CHECK YOUR STASH AND SEE IF YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO THIN OUT YOUR EXCESS OF PARTS. I AM HAVING TO REBUILD A SET UP OF OLA WALNUT CABINETS THAT THE ORIGINAL OWNER ALLOWED TO BE COMPLETELY REDONE WITH OFF THE WALL COMPONENTS. LIKE TOO HAVE THEM BACK TO ALL ORIGINAL. THANK YOU AND BE SAFE FOR THE NEW YEAR!!! "ITCHIJO"

    SQUARE MAGNET COCKED ON TWEETER???

    GENTLEMAN: MERRY CHRISTMAS MY ADVENT BROTHERS!!! JUST GOT A SET OF OLD SCHOOL CAGED FRIED EGG TWEETERS, SECOND GENERATION AND THE SQUARE MAGNET IS COCKED WITH A COMPARISON TO ITS MATCH. IS THERE ANY WAY THAT THIS CAN BE STRAIGHTENED OUT WITH OUT DAMAGING THE TWEETER??? I AM GOING TO BE HAVING TO MODIFY THE TWEETER OPENING ON A SET OF ADVENT JENSEN #4002 CABINETS, AND I PRAYERFULLY HOPE THAT THIS CAN BE FITTED, ESPECIALLY IF THE MAGNET CAN NOT BE REPOSITIONED. ANY HELP AND GUIDANCE ON THIS PROBLEM WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A PROBLEM AS THIS WITH ANYBODY THAT I HAVE TALKED TO ABOUT ADVENT SPEAKERS!!! THANK YOU, AND HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!

    OLD SCHOOL ADVENT PERFORMANCE???

    GENTLEMAN: I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS ERRATIC SOUND COMING FROM A SET OF OLD SCHOOL ADVENT SPEAKERS. THESE ARE THE WOOD RING WOOFERS AND THE PROTRUDING TWEETERS IN THE LARGE ADVENT CABINETS. PREVIOUS OWNER SAID HE HAD GONE OVER THE SPEAKERS AND REPLACED THE FOAM SURROUNDS. HE SEEMED TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE SPEAKERS AND THEY HAD PERFORMED VERY STRONGLY IN THE DEMO OF THEM. MY QUESTION IS CAN THE CROSSOVERS AFTER ALL THESE YEARS BE LOSING THEIR CAPABILITIES OF THEIR ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE? AND IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A CROSSOVER CAN GO WITH NO REAL HARD DRIVING FORCE OF MUSIC AND NOT THE TWEETERS? ANY INPUT INTO MY QUESTION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! THANKS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!! "ITCHIJO"

    CABINET DESIGN

    THANK YOU!!! DXHO AND RA.RA GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! IN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THESE ADVENT SPEAKERS, WHAT WOULD YOU THINK THAT THEIR VALUE WOULD BE AND I KNOW WITHOUT EYE-BALLIN' THEM IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A ROUGH GUESS. THE OWNER SAYS THAT THEY ARE AN #8 OUT OF #10 OVERALL COSMETICALLY AND MECHANICALLY. PLEASE LET ME HEAR YOUR INPUT, FOR I HAVE JUST STARTED TO DIVE INTO THIS ADDICTION OF HEAVENLY SOUND OF THESE ADVENTS. THANKS!!! "ITCHIJO"
