  1. I picked up this pair of Original Large Advent. Or at least I think they are. I do not know my Advents that well. I have not opened these up yet. Obviously they need new surrounds and I was also going to replace the caps while I was at it. And I had plans on lightly sanding and oiling the cabinets to make them sparkle again. They have identical intact tags that say Advent Loudspeaker on back with serial #s M 01535 and M 3057. As you can see from the photos, they look identical with the grilles on, but off one has the Masonite woofer and the cage over the tweeter. The person I got t
  2. I want to buy two New Large Advent woofers. Metal frame, square magnet, original cone and voice coil. Surround condition is not important. Thanks
  3. Hi All, Just picked up a set of OLAs. One cabinet has the original woofer driver (needs refoaming), the other cabinet has a replacement 12 inch woofer. Haven't pulled it yet to determine the manufacturer. Looking for an original 12" (10" cone) woofer to install in this cabinet. If anyone has one to sell, please contact me. If it needs refoaming or a voice coil, that's OK. I can perform the rebuild (provided of course the voice coils are available somewhere). As always, thank you for your help. Paul
  4. Hi Everyone, I bought these PALs in December from the original owner. I just noticed that one is missing a woofer. I don't want to get involved in sourcing replacements, and I'd like to just sell them. I'm a big Advent fan, and I'd really prefer for them to fall to someone who appreciates them and can fix them up, so I'm listing them here. I turned them on very briefly, for about 10 seconds each. The green light comes on, you can hear both amps humming gently, then they click (similar the sound my receiver makes when the input is engaged), then light static comes from the tweeters.
  5. Is the Advent/1 an 8 ohm speaker?

    Cabinets for 5012

    I have the tweeters and woofers for a pair of Advent 5012's but no cabinets. Any idea where I can find them or is there a good design to build my own???

    Among other gear purchased at an auction down the street I bought a pair of Advert Heritage speakers in pristine condition. The cabinets are in like new condition. Woofer surrounds look good but there's always that chance they'll need replaced. Haven't heard them yet. Thinking of including them in my surround sound setup with my big Samsung UHD TV. Paid $50 for the pair. Also scored two Onkyo surround sound receivers, a CD/DVD changer, and a massive 2- 12" powered sub-woofer (that I haven't even looked at yet) I just know it's very heavy. Paid another $50 for all that. Receivers do work. Als
  8. Compelling AR "Hindsight" Questions: Instead of the 3-way AR-5 with its excellent, expensive midrange and tweeter, should AR have made a good 3-way bookshelf unit using the AR-3a 12-inch woofer and an AR-2ax-type midrange and dome tweeter—at the AR-5 price point—to better compete with (or outgun) the Large Advent? It would use the AR-3a-size cabinet, but it would not include the expensive midrange-dome driver or solid-wood grill molding. It would look like a slightly larger AR-2ax box. As we all know, the AR-5 was (except for deep bass) technically superior to the Advent, but it failed in t
  9. I just scanned a 12 page marketing brochure that has an marketing-type overview of the design philosophy for the Larger and Smaller Advent loudspeakers. I'd guess it was published around 1974. It is a good-quality scan and it is a single PDF file. As such, it is too large to upload here. It is available on my webserver here: http://archive.mgm51.com/library/Advent
  10. I have a pair of Small Advent speakers originally purchased in 1975. For many years they were used with an amplifier that was not "compatible" with 4 ohm speakers. It worked that way for years, but they stopped working eventually. I'm ignorant when it comes to electronics, so I don't know what is wrong with them. I'm moving and need to get rid of these speakers. Instead of recycling them, I was wondering if any one would be interested in having these speakers for free for parts. The cabinets are in good shape and there is some mild discoloration of the fabric covers, see photo attached.
  11. Looking for pair of NLA (New Large Advent) woofers (without the Masonite ring). I would prefer that the surrounds are NOT new (wish to use my own) and that magnets are square shape but will accept round magnets. Dust caps must be porous type
  12. Reborn of ADVENT A4 speakers! Sound is FANTASTIC!!! And the look!!! All I can say for sure is that I do not need to invest in speakers anymore in my lifetime, perfect speakers! Thanks Henry Kloss! Handmade oak-wood speakers with Advent A4 woofers, tweeters and crossovers. All crossover parts replaced with new ones.
  13. Hi, New to the forum and I just picked up this pair of Advent 3s. The woofer on one has a scratchy sound, like a short. I switched woofers around, so I know it's not the electronics in the speaker cabinet. I don't see any tears or other damage to the woofer. Is there any way to fix this? Thanks for your help Jordan.
