Yes and I would put the 'Concert Grands' on a similar level with Altec Lancing 'Voice Of The Theater'. Heard them both with all kinds of music material driven by big Macs (no pun intended). You just needed a mansion or a room the size of a gym.;-) Both where fabulous speakers systems of the day, but by their very design, efficiency and space required-dated them as of the late 60's.

No Net in those days but got an address off the speakers themselves. I sent one in for repair because I managed to ruin a cone. Not only did they send it back fully repaired, but they sent me directions on how to build my own custom enclosures. I had a cabinet shop cut all the wood exactly as directed by Bozak and assembled everything myself as directed with acoustic material. I ran the set with original Advents through a Kenwood receiver....which I didn't fully understand from their directions, was internally wired in series. I loved the sound but in retrospect, the speaker sets were probably out of phase with each other all running at the same time.
I was in a band then as a drummer and I had my practice set in between the towers of speakers-worked out really well. Stupidly, when came time to move, I dumped the Bozaks and kept the Advents-I hope the Bozaks went on somewhere to make more splendid music reproduction, as they were a fine company and product.

I've only seen raw Bozak drivers in a 2nd hand store.
The tweeters were made in Canada to R. T. Bozak's specifications if I remember the label on the them.
If I remember correctly, the B310's (Concert Grands)? were sort of the very best available in their day.
