Advent/1 rebuild project

Recommended Posts

Here are the pictures...

The 13uf cap is not easy to find so I used Dayton Audio 6.2uf and 6.8uf 250V 1% Caps in parallel.

I opted to glue the surrounds on the front edge of the driver instead of the inside edge (factory).

I also replaced the screw nuts connectors with 5-way binding posts

Comments welcome... 

These are really nice sounding speakers

These were an estate find... Ignore the right hand cabinet (an EPI M100W The "Test Mule" for cabinet finishing solutions)

I was stoked to see the grills were in this condition. Right hand Advent logo will straighten by realigning the grill cloth stretch

Surrounds were toast, as expected

Love the Serial Number label on the foam

Original NLA crossover with no switching (13uf Cap)

This is just a test fitting of the foam surrounds prior to cleaned old glue off frame edge and repainting frame edge.

This glue takes a bit of work to get off the frame... Can't stand to see glue globs on reform jobs
