  1. Hey! Glad to see the forums back up and running. I've just starting using my Allison Threes again (the home office routine!) and have discovered that both of the the surrounds have finally bit the dust. I had Bill LeGall at Millersound fix my midranges a couple of years ago, and he's amazing and wonderful, but I'd like to try to find someone local in MA who's worked on the Allison 12" woofers before and can fix them. Any suggestions??
  2. I now attach 2 pdf documents that describe how I have refurbished my AR-16 speakers - Part 3 will follow after I replaced the capacitors. Part 1 a) Over view of speakers b) Description of Front Cover c) Removing Woofer d) Cleaning the rear frame and magnet of the Woofer e) Removing glue from front frame of Woofer f) Removing glue from paper cone Part 2 g) Removing Tweeter h) Taking Tweeter apart i) Cleaning and painting the Tweeter j) Painting Woofer frame k) Attaching new foam to Woofer Part 3 l) Remove stuffing / filling m) The crossover n) Crossover diagram o) Replace Capacitors p) Box construction / materials q) Re-assembly r) Testing AR-16 Refurbishment part 2.pdf AR-16_Refurbishment_part_1.pdf
  3. So I found a pair of 6s (late model) which looked like a refoam and refinish job, but to my horror, when I unboxed them, the doofus seller packed them in a way that the front grills were pulverised, and the tweeter domes were, well, not nipples anymore. Goddamit. Questions for you Allison fans (FYI, I've owned a pair of new 7s and am the current happy owner of a late model pair of Threes. I've restored two pairs of AR-3as and a pair of AR-4s, too, so I know how to do stuff, ;-) ): Most importantly: Are my tweeters hopeless, or is there a way to fix them? If I need to replace my tweeters, will ANY Allison two-way tweeter work as a drop-in replacement? (e.g., Four, Five, 'classic' Six, CD6, 7/CD7, AL110?) How is the Allison badge fastened to the speaker? (does it screw in, is it glued on?) Has anyone ever replaced the spring-loaded speaker wire terminals with 3-way binding posts (and if you have done so, how?) And yes, I've already ordered a new pair of front grills from Alex Bobotek. I'd be grateful for any advice you may have. Happy New Year!
  4. Hi Everyone, Longtime reader, first comment. I finally got my hands on a nice pair of Powered Advents. I've been debating myself for about a month on whether I should do the refoam myself, but ultimately, I'm too nervous and I'd like these to be perfect, cost (almost) no object. Does anyone have a recommendation on who I should send the woofers to? Thank you for your help, and thanks to this community in general. I've learned a lot from you guys over the years. -Charlie

  6. I know this is an old worn out topic but need to ask. I will be re-foaming four NLAs 10" woofers. They are the metal frame square magnets. The old foam attached to the cone between the cone and the frame. This will make it hard for old glue and old foam removal (not impossible though). My question is that i saw a big seller of the foam replacement parts had a video of simply gluing the foam to the top of the cone (easy peasy). Is this just wrong?
  7. This is my first post and i am wondering if anyone can help with this? I bought a nice pair of AR3a's locally that needed refoaming. When I removed the grills I found that they had been refoamed before The glue had become very gooey and was difficult to remove. after several hours of scraping and cleaning they were finally ready for the foam. I have not glued the foam to the frame because I am concerned that these woofers might have had the fiber ring removed in the previous (sloppy) refoam job. Can anyone tell if these should have the fiber ring and if so where I could get them? Thanks in advance dbenn
