Macassar Ebony Forte


My pair of Macassar Ebony Fortes bought new but stored away for years. Recently refreshed the wood to minimize some bumps and bruises and, primarily, to undo an ill-advised refinishing job from a long while back. 


Did a mild upgrade to crossovers replacing electrolic (because of age) and upgrading the caps on the tweeters to basic Dayton Metalized Polypropylene and a nicer Dayton resistor. Don't do much "critical" listening where I'm using them so that's probably as far as I'll go with the crossovers. Did, however, find that I had at some point replaced one of the tweeter diaphragms and the two speakers didn't match so used that as an excuse to get a pair of the Crites titanium replacements. 


Probably do a little more work on the cabinets at some point but liking things enough as-is after rearranging the "small" system in the living room to accomodate I'm just going to enjoy them for a while. 


Purchased when I was in college and working part time at a stereo shop. Last pair of Fortes made in this finish with inspection stickers signed by the man himself.
