Guest ldschumacher Posted April 25, 2007 Report Share Posted April 25, 2007 Thanks for all the info here - this is a great site. I have a pair of original large Advent and a pair of the original Smaller Advents. All have been refoamed and work great in two differnt rooms. They had as I understand the same woofer and tweeter, but the crossovers were different. Could I build two new cabinets exactly the size of the originals, build two new 'original' crossovers and then use the Smaller Advent speakers in these new cabinets and essentially have 4 large original Advents?At one time many years ago, I used all of these in a stacked Advent kind of system, but I remember the caveat about the combined impedance being only about 2.5 ohms and thus potentially damaging to my amp, so I have not tried it again. I also remember an article sometime ago giving a 'fix' for this problem by using an in line resistor/capacitor something to get the impedance matched but have long since lost that. Building new cabinets and crossovers would eliminate the concern and provide an upgrade of the crossover as well. I have built several cabinets, so that is not a problem, but finding an original size and dimension spec. might be.Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
