Teletristan Posted September 22, 2018 Report Share Posted September 22, 2018 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. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
