Pete B Posted June 19, 2007 Report Share Posted June 19, 2007 There seem to be 3 sources for newly manufactured Large Advent Woofer replacements. I'm wondering if anyone has tried these and what they thought of the performance/sound.AB-Tech, $84.50 this looks like it is the closest to the original, but don't know the motor type without a view of the back: http://www.abtechservices.com/adventspeakers.htmlhttp://www.abtechservices.com/images/lgadventwoofer.jpgLayne Audio, "improved" $80 with adapter plate, made in the USA claimed to be better than original, lower moving mass claimed which will raise Fc, it is clearly a somewhat different woofer: http://layneaudio.hypermart.net/Advent.htmHere is a post by the owner where he mentions this "improved" woofer: http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/dc/dcbo...ing_type=searchLayne Audio, factory repro $85 made in China: http://layneaudio.hypermart.net/Advent.htmSimply Speakers, $129, claimed to be "New Factory Advent" part however the picture does not look like anything I've seen from the factory, can anyone confirm this: http://simplyspeakers.com/12diaphragms.htmLooks like a Jensen style motor: http://simplyspeakers.com/graphics_product...er-12100402.jpgThere are several choices here and I'm just curious as to which is the best.I'd be willing to measure each one for T&S parameters and in system Fc, Qtc for any supplier willing to provide samples. Three of each type would be best, measure all of them, listen to a pair, and disect one of each to determine materials used in construction, and motor geometry.
