ironlake Posted January 28, 2012 Report Share Posted January 28, 2012 I had been listening to my large original advents ever since 1970 and was used to that sound,. Then a couple of years ago when on vacation to Vancouver, BC we attended a live orchchestra concert and was I surprised. The violins sounded so smooth and rich compared to the harsh sound I was used on the the Large Advent I stopped listening to strings on the LA,s and used the sound of my klh model 21 connected to an ar 4x and they sound so nice on the strings.Now I saved my money and got a pair of totaly restored pair of ar 3a,s and now my system is back on my listening list of classical music.If anyone is interested my beautiful orginal made in dec of 1969 large advents are for sale, cabinets are perfect, woofer refoamed by simply speakers a few years back, has the original pink fiberglass inside, even the wires to the woofer have pink glued to them. Woofer is of course the masonite type, the front panel is not black but light brown. Tweeter is the one with the point of the masonite sightly angled towards the right with the extra masonite block under it to hold the grill out. The front grills are still perfect and have the window screen in the tweeter hole for protecting the tweeters, They came with no screen protectant on the tweeters, they now (tweeter) have the metal mesh glued on them which was supplied by advent to me latter to glue on. the tweeters are in excellent condition with still a bright red color as they never were played loud enough to get hot and turn dark red, thes speakers are in new condition.Make offer to email@example.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
