  1. thank you for that link!! I was going to ask my buddy with a 3D printer to make one... that guy seems like he’s already got it setup. I’m 99% certain I’m not going to part them out TBH. They sound pretty decent even needing new surrounds for the 8”. Seems like on a frequency sweep they cover pretty ok from 40hz-18khz although i didn’t use an analyzer just my ears. I also need to figure out how to clean the speaker cones... it’s like they were covered with tar, one of them actually had some feathers on it. There’s still a ton of dust on them though and I don’t want to repair the surrounds until I can get the cones cleanish. I’m thinking of using some simple green on a microfiber cloth to clean them.
  2. or I might hear them and decide I’m going g to keep them... I’m a collector not a flipper, much to my spouse’s chagrin. I don’t know if I will ever find another set of Allison’s for the price I paid which was $40 at a thrift store.
  3. well one of the woofer grills is broken in half... and there’s some moisture damage to one of the cabinets. I’m waiting for the new surrounds to get here to really run these things up and then figure out if I want to finish a restoration or part them out. Either way I think I am probably going to sell them.
  4. Plugged them into my Yamaha R8 this morning and the tweeters and crossovers are good. The woofer surrounds are toast but the cones were moving and making a little noise. I’m going to run a quick frequency sweep through them later today and make sure before I buy the foam kit. Even with the beat woofers these speakers sounded nice. I think they might get swapped into my bedroom setup which currently has ADS L300 bookshelves.
  5. I just grabbed a set of CD6’s with apparently good tweeters in them, I can totally see how easy it would be to bang them up in transit...
  6. It looks like I need to refoam the 8” drivers... but the tweeters and crossovers appear and sound like they’re working great! One of the 8” grills is cracked and there’s some water damage to the oak veneer. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to rebuild these (I’m a NE speaker fan with lots of ADS, AR and Boston Acoustics speakers) or part them out as my current situation really doesn’t involve anymore acoustic suspension speakers and I’m onto the horn loaded speaker kick right now... (I got a lot of Klipsch, Altec, Western Electric and EV vintage stuff and I’m sort of saving to buy some Klipsch Jubilees in the near future. I don’t know much about Allison Acoustics other than they were a spin-off from AR I think? I’m in Massachusetts so seeing something other than the Bose name on speakers is always a treat and these needed a rescue. Any thoughts? I know I can fix the 8” for fairly cheap... and I might or I might list the tweeters and crossovers on eBay do someone else can use them to fix their bashed up or not working ferro fluid tweeters. Thanks for your thoughts on this... this forum seems to be the most active area for these boxes.
