Allison Seven Speakers Restored

2 posts in this topic

I picked these up at a local auction. Fortunately all the drivers were still functioning. So I restored them. The surrounds needed to be replaced, of course. Someone had drilled a hole in the back of the speakers to enable them to be hung from a wall (thus destroying the acoustic suspension system). I plugged the hole tightly. I replaced the 8 uf cap in the crossover (see picture). Then I used Howards Restore a Finish on the walnut veneer. Fabulous stuff for bringing old wood to life. These, by the dates on the woofers were from mid-1984. 

They sound spectacular. Very, very clear with wonderful, subtle bass. Allison's engineering genius is on display.
