  1. Hi. I’d like to buy a pair of CD9s, most preferably in the walnut finish. Not looking for a project, so the cabinets and grilles need to be in good to very good condition. Let me know, I’d be happy to give yours a good home!
  2. So I found a pair of 6s (late model) which looked like a refoam and refinish job, but to my horror, when I unboxed them, the doofus seller packed them in a way that the front grills were pulverised, and the tweeter domes were, well, not nipples anymore. Goddamit. Questions for you Allison fans (FYI, I've owned a pair of new 7s and am the current happy owner of a late model pair of Threes. I've restored two pairs of AR-3as and a pair of AR-4s, too, so I know how to do stuff, ;-) ): Most importantly: Are my tweeters hopeless, or is there a way to fix them? If I need to replace my tweeters, will ANY Allison two-way tweeter work as a drop-in replacement? (e.g., Four, Five, 'classic' Six, CD6, 7/CD7, AL110?) How is the Allison badge fastened to the speaker? (does it screw in, is it glued on?) Has anyone ever replaced the spring-loaded speaker wire terminals with 3-way binding posts (and if you have done so, how?) And yes, I've already ordered a new pair of front grills from Alex Bobotek. I'd be grateful for any advice you may have. Happy New Year!

    About To Join The Fray

    Hi everyone, Been doing some reading on Allison speakers because I'm picking up my first pair today! They're refoamed Model 5's. One of the grills is broken which I've heard is common. And I'm told there's a slight dimple in one of the tweeters. The cabinets are absolutely perfect. They look amazing. My question is.. does $225 for the pair sound reasonable? It seems it to me, but wanted to get the experts take. The only vintage speakers I own currently are some EPI A70s so this is new territory for me. I just purchased a 1968ish AR Ax turntable and am hoping the Allison's will be a good match. I'm running a single ended class A tube amp, but I don't think it has enough power to drive them. It only outputs 8w per channel stereo at 4Ω. So I may be in the market for a new amplifier. Too bad Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and ask my question. Thanks for all the contributers here! Some great info. Hopefully one day I will be one. Thanks in advance! Joe

    Allison CD6 Manual needed!

    Hi - if anyone has a CD6 manual, could you post it up here? I've just added my manual for the Three and the CD7 in the Library Additions and Corrections forum, BTW.
  5. Including the "Speaker Impedance" info sheet, and "Switching Circuits for 4-Ohm Speakers." CD7.pdf
  6. My copy. Enjoy!Three.pdf
  7. Hi Guys, I am the second owner of these speakers and they are spectacular and nearly perfect... I didn't want to sell them, but I have too many sets of speakers and nothing to drive them. They have not been used for quite a while and are in perfect condition, except for two minimal tears which are pictured in pictures 2 and 3. Best offer gets them. Want them gone by this weekend.. Cash Talks! Thanks, Marc

    Allison Sevens

    Hey everyone I just signed up because I am looking for folks more knowledgeable than I (which means folks that know absolutely anything about classic speakers). This seemed like the place. I have a pair of Allison Sevens. In very good shape except for the screens which are mostly shot. I think they've gotten a bit more damage even since these pictures were taken. Can anyone tell me anything about these speakers? History, quality, value, etc.? Many thanks in advance for any help and for sharing your knowledge...

    AR 5 Tweeters

    I recently had a pair of AR 5 tweeters rewound from the inside out ( re-wired) and made new again @ 70.00 each and they sound fantastic! Would these tweeters or perhaps AR 3 tweeters or any AR 4ohm tweeter of this vintage make a suitable replacement for Allison tweeters??
  10. Hi, Does anyone know if the tweeters in the vintage Allison two-way designs and three-way designs were the same. Specifically, were the tweeters in Allison 4s the same as the ones in Allison CD-8s ? Thanks.
  11. Pair of Allison One for sale in West Los Angeles, Very good-to-excellent condition. Superb sound. Woofers have been refoamed. Grills have the usual cracks, but they're quite decent as can be seen in the photos. Always gently used at modest levels. $700 obo. For local pickup only in LA.
  12. I bought these from a BAS member a long, long time ago and have been using them continuously since until I moved this past November. I replaced a mid-range about 6 years ago via the group that was selling Allison parts in Lexington, KY at the time. Otherwise, they have not been serviced. They are now under plastic awaiting a new owner. I live in the Chicago area. $400.
  13. I bought these from Waltham Camera forever ago. They were used continuously until this past October when I moved. I believe they are in perfect working condition, but I have not "blasted" them for a long time, so who knows. They have never been refurbed in any way. I live in the Chicago area. $150.
