  1. Looking for a single ADS L 520 if anyone has one. Slim chance but worth a shot! thx Tom
  2. Looking for a single orphan KLH Model Six speaker. thx
  3. If you still have these, I'll make the trip. I'm in Columbia, SC thx Tom
  4. JayRd7 I would recommend removing the staples in the old fabric. You'll need the room and it may affect the "thickness"" of the grill when you go over the top of all those staples and fabric. Be careful with the underlying black fabric, you'll want to reuse it. It may be very fragile, I have torn some in the past along the edges. I've done several pair of Seventeens and Sixes with JKent' suggested Charles Craft Irish Linen from Michaels and it is a very nice fabric and very inexpensive. I ended up using a hot glue gun because I could not find any staples short enough to not go through
  5. Hey guys, thanks for the info and responses. I did sell these to a local guy who wanted to experiment with different drivers he has collected and he was looking for that size cabinet...so I don't know but I doubt they would have suited well in the long run. Thanks again Tom

    EPi 100 woofers?

    SteveW: Are the foam surrounds intact? I would search for an original EPI 8" woofer from those Model 100's and either re-foam it if needed or buy one that has been refoamed. They show up on ebay all the time for reasonable prices. Those woofers were matched well w/ the inverted dome tweet for a very nice sound.
  7. Hi I acquired a pair of EPI 100V w/ EPI Gold Ring Tweeters with these 8" Cambridge Soundworks Woofers. No apparent crossover mods have occurred. Round magnet woofers are stamped Cambridge Soundworks and dated April 5, 1995. No part number or serial numbers. I've always thought the 8" square magnet (EPI/Genesis/Epicure) were OK to interchange but my question is ...are these CS woofers suitable for this speaker and crossover to work as the speaker was designed? any help is much appreciated.

    ADS L520

    Thanks Glitch. I think either would work? I did test the " bad" one and tested direct from my receiver and no sound. I did not disconnect it from the crossover because it's soldered and I don't know how to solder. When I touched the speaker wire for my receiver to the Woffor clips no sound but the Tweeter worked fine through it that way. So I think I'll switch woofers and see if it works that way just to eliminate a crossover problem. Does that make sense?

    ADS L520

    BTW- this record collection I picked up while buying his speakers...OMG over 300 LP's 60's, 70's rock. My wife is NONE too happy

    ADS L520

    Well...one dead woofer. The other speaker sounds excellent. Now I need to find a replacement woof. There are no part numbers on the driver. There are a couple of drivers on eeebay, both listed for the L520 but they have different part numbers. 206-0326 and 206-0323. ?

    ADS L520

    And they do have rubber surrounds. The best part...the gentleman was getting rid of his vinyl collection and I bought over 100 albums! Some real classics...

    ADS L520

    I have found out more...they are indeed an earlier model. I did aquire them this afternoon. Other than the cabinets, they appear to be in very good shape and at first listen, I think I'm going to love these. They are vinyl covered and have fabric grills. Drivers look very good. Thank you all for the advice, VERY much appreciated.

    ADS L520

    Seller is asking $100 but agreed to $60. I thought 100 was a bit high...

    ADS L520

    Thanks so much. Great advice! Here is the only photo that I have. Seller tells me they are all original and all drivers working. Going to see them in a day or two.

    ADS L520

    I've never owned any ADS speakers but am very curious to hear and play around. Have an opportunity to buy a pair of L520 for $60. I've only seen some photos of them on the CL ad. Cabs are in rough shape, chipped corners and what looks like peeling vinyl. I have read that the cabs are wood veener. Did they make these w vinyl coverings? Looks to have cloth grills, not metal. Maybe an earlier version? Am going to look in a couple of days so hopefully some can comment. Opinions? Decent value? Thx Tom
  17. I have a beautiful pair of Model Fives that I had JKent rebuild the crossovers on. I have never heard a more pleasant sounding speaker and I've owned dozens of pairs including AR, Advent, older Infinity, vintage polk, klipsch, etc. They are just amazing for me. And very attractive. JKent did a great job and was very helpful in my restoration process. They will be willed to my son when I die!
  18. SOLD 8/7/17 pair Snell XA 90ps speakers for sale. Black. Includes original remote. In very good cosmetic condition. There is an issue w/ amplifier that powers the 2 lower subs on one of the speakers. The other speaker is fine. Pick up in Columbia, SC Offers: tomknow86@gmail.com
  19. Looking for a pair of the brass (?)plated badges with the Green lettering for my Model II's (early version.) Thanks tomknow86@gmail.com
  20. Acquired a nice pair of Model II's, vinyl cabinets w/ light colored grill fabric. No badges. These had the brass(?) plate badges w/ Green lettering. The model II's had a larger badge than the model I's. Anyone have any for the Model II?
  21. I think I'm at that same conclusion. There's an excellent tech here in Columbia, SC. Thanks for the dialogue. Tom
  22. Yes, I sure did. All the Woofers produce sound from another source. They just aren't getting a power source through the speakers amp.
  23. yes, I looked for that, no fuses. Also double checked the connections. Thank you.
  24. I have a nice pair of Snell XA 90ps with the amplified powered subs (2 in each box). On one speaker the amp is not working, it powers up, red LED illuminates on the front of the cabinet but no sound. Drivers tested fine and produce sound, just not from the amp. Anyone know how to get this repaired? All of the other drivers are working fine, just the 2 - 10" subs are not getting powered by the amp. I'm told that the micro control board goes defective on some of these. My plan is to sell these as they are too big now for my living quarters but I want to have a fully functioning pair to sell vs
  25. EPI M100- so in removing one tweeter lead, I broke off one of the "tabs" from the back of the driver Shown in 2nd photo. Is this repairable? Thanks Tom
