These are CT pickup only or will drop off at U ship. For those who don't know me, I am: PB2 on DIYaudio Pete B on AudioKarma psound2004 on ebay with 100% positive rating Pete Basel on Parts Express Tech Talk. These Advent NLA 's in walnut are the cleanest pair that I've ever seen $499. I will bring them to any of the North East Fest meets if there is interest. Serial numbers #A473830 and #A473622 Plug and play ready to go, bought from the original owner who said that they were placed in a room and never moved until sold to me. Shows 6-1980 build date inside. I went over them with Howard's Restore a Finish and Howard's Feed and Wax just to freshen up the finish, there were no water marks or deep scratches. There are very minor scratches on the top and bottoms. I have a feeling that these had an easy life unlike many I've seen that were party speakers. The tweeters tested out perfectly, indicating that the ferro fluid is not burnt; they are numbers 7 and 8 in this post with fundamental resonances well below 2 KHz: http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/new-large-advent-tweeter-issues.824843/#post-11776773 I carefully refoamed the woofers and they measure correctly as a result of using the correct foam. I recapped them with Dayton %1 poly film caps and with resistors to compensate for the original ESR as I discuss in this thread: http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/advent-nla-input-impedance-warning.830276/ This is a completely stock restoration - no modifications. I was going to keep these but have decided that I just have too many speakers. I am also the author of this web page: http://baselaudiolab.com/ADVENT_LA_XO.html
I am repairing a set of Large Advent (2nd generation) for a friend. The Fried Egg tweeters are open circuit. They (both) need repair or replacement. This is the original owner who doesn't want to part with them We all know how that goes...So, Any suggestions?
Hi, I bought some original large advents(I believe) I like the sound but they have some problems. When the high frequency switch is turned to anything but extended there is no output from the tweeter. It looks to me as if they are OLAs that the tweeters has been replaced in. If so, how should I go about updating the crossover? -Thanks
