GD70 Posted April 9, 2016 Report Share Posted April 9, 2016 Last September, I made a large audio purchase from my co-workers best friends husband. His wife wanted everything out! My co-worker said I know the perfect person. Ends up the best friend is someone I worked with 16 years ago! Small world indeed! Included in the purchase were my ADS 910's, Magneplaner SMG's, a Luxman receiver and McIntosh amplifier. I sold everything except the 910's, AR's and Maggies, which need rebuilding. Anyway, Iinitally passed on the 12's, which he was going to bring to the city dump! Stupid me! After doing a little research on these, I went back and grabbed them for free! He was the original owner. I've restored them with help from Roy, and reading through some threads here. They have been re-capped, new surrounds and new foam gaskets for the mids and tweeters which I made. Luckily, the cabs were beautiful needing only a sanding and refinish with Watcos. I need to build grill frames and get cloth. My plan is to make them the original shape as the foam ones with the angled sides. I've finally had the entire day to listen to these and they are extremely good! I put them on some stands I had, which really made a noticeable improvement. I have a thread on the restoration over on AK also. Glenn This is how they looked when I got them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
