  1. Nice! To This day I’ve never had the chance to compare the LST’s to my IC20’s
  2. Frank, That is an amazing story and historical accounting (I loved the photograph!) I do “travel” quite a bit lighter than yourself, especially because we are contemplating a move possibly in the next year or so. My gear constantly evolves and when it does, the older is either used up, sold off or both.
  3. I was one of those who went from the 60 WPC AR to the phase 400/2000 preamp back in 77. Everything about not enough juice came to an end, requiring only a common sense level of discretion. I’ve stayed with Bob Carver designs right up to the here and now with Sunfire Signature. I swapped the 400 after over 11 years of service for Carver’s 1.0t
  4. https://groups.io/ there is your link…through there, you will find that Allison group
  5. Hopefully, he’s still with us….last time I spoke to him he was in the office 20 years ago clearing it out after the failed attempt to get the company up again. Somewhere around that time he had a heart attack, but was recovering. The real story lies with anything and everything ROY ALLISON. You should join the Allison Speakers group (Groups.io) you’ll have to look it up on the search engine, but some of the last who are knowledgeable about RA are still there.
  6. That’s easy! When you “save this search” worldwide is in the filters list. No big deal really…a pair mostly from Italy pops up occasionally. I did once have a nice chat with somebody across the pond because of that. You might be interested in reading my thread about the IC20’s in original boxes for 20 years! If you read that, you’ll discover I’m no stranger to Allison’s push/pull configuration. Scroll down the Allison Topics list and you will see it
  7. That information was never a matter of public record to my knowledge. David Faulkner was the name of the investor that funded and attempted to restart the company way back in 2000.
  8. LOL is right! I was thinking about this a bit, then realized in the past year or two, I saw a couple of the hardcore guys that I thought would never let go, part with their prized systems. That’s why I maintain an ongoing (world wide) Ebay Allison search. I’m not in need, but it’s fun to keep an eye out.
  9. The answer you received from eminence was incorrect actually….Allison Acoustics was originally building their own drivers, though towards the end they were outsourced, (not familiar with that detail). The timing yes. Getting anything from the company became a nightmare around 1999. Restarting the company came and went with failure and is now fading from memory, except for those of us who were young enough and saw it coming. There is NO huge cult of fanatics out there clamoring for Allison. Just a small group of hardcores keeping an eye 👁 out.
  10. Lol!….well it appears you’ll have a blast playing around with the cabs no matter what creation you come up with (tinkering is your passion.)
  11. I lived with both the 2a and 2ax just like that neither toed in. The distance between was the only thing I played around with on the 2ax. The 2a’s we’re Always planted in furniture
  12. Many?? I’ve never seen a flat surround in 44 years of being at this (just sayin’) maybe some clarification
