What's the impedance on the Advent/1?

Recommended Posts

Welcome thompw.

I don't claim to be an Advent expert but AFAIK there is no such thing as an Advent/1. "The Advent Loudspeaker" aka the OLA was 8 ohms.

FYI: The Advent/1 was made from 1977 to 1983.  It was made to replace the Smaller Advent.  It is slightly larger than the Smaller Advent but smaller than the Large Advent.  I currently have a pair of Advent/1's.

HEY THOMPW: HERE IS AN ADVENT FORUM AND YOU WOULD THINK THAT YOU COULD HAVE YOUR QUESTION ANSWERED, WITH A SIMPLE YES OR NO. THERE ARE ADVENT 1 SPEAKERS, AND I OWN A SET TO CONFIRM MY ANSWER!!! THE SAD THING ABOUT YOUR PREVIOUS RESPONSE IS A SHAME, THAT MIND NOT ENGAGED ALLOWS FLAPPING JUST TO IMPRESS!!! THE TERMINALS ARE MARKED ON THE RIGHT WITH AN #8 AND THE LEFT WITH A #0 SO PRAYERFULLY THIS HELPS YOU OUT. NOW GO AND ENJOY YOUR HEAVENLY MUSIC!!! TAKE CARE MY ADVENT BROTHER!!!

Well thanks for the information. As I said--I'm no expert on Advent.

Based on your response I did another Google search and found the Advent/1. They are 8 ohm speakers. Apparently there was also an Advent 1 (with no slash). Confusing.

Thanks, ITCHIJO, for pointing out what I could have seen but didn't!  I looked at my Advent/1's, and sure enough, there's an 8 and a 0 next to the terminals.

In fact, I was just listening to The Yellow Brick Road earlier this evening!  I can't promise to keep the volume to a minimum, though.

I believe the only Advent to NOT be a nominal 8 ohm load is the Smaller Advent at 4 ohms.

Am unable to comment on the entire Advent line, but you're right about the Smaller Advent.
