    Altec A7's

    Which components do you have? ALTEC sold A-7's for over 40 years with several enclosure changes 825 > 828 variants, and dozens of driver/crossover loads from the early 30 watt 803 to the 150 watt 421-8H II in the 1236 PA version. See www.LansingHeritage.org for more. I can help you identify what you have with photos - I was the ALTEC-PRO factory rep 1974-75 and I'm still messing with them here in Minneapolis!
  2. Here's a pair for sale in Hastings, MN: https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/ele/d/hastings-seeburg-dds1-speakers/7092070057.html
  3. Plug your sub into a switched outlet power strip! See - I fixed it for $10.00!
  4. WOW! I remember my first week with ALTEC - met Bob Ancha at McCormick Place in Chicago - he showed me racks of Altec-Green amplifiers, fired up the system with some Rock'N'Roll, we walked out to the exhibit showfloor, he pointed up. 48 ALTEC A7's firing down - distributed array - on the ceiling!
  5. Thanks to Thaddeus, I'm looking forward to his Outlaw 990 by the weekend! He is a gentleman, and I owe him one!
  6. WTB: Outlaw Audio 950 AV 5.1 Surround Processor or equivalent Looking for Outlaw Audio 950 AV 5.1 Surround Processor with remote control or reasonable equivalent to replace my Adcom GTP-740 that just suffered a catastrophic failure sending a huge pulse of DC into my Adcom 7400 5-channel power amp and Klipsch speakers. It sounded like a shotgun blast in a small room! Replacement must be under 5" height to fit into my rack, fully functional, and include a working remote.
  7. Why are you selling? What don't you like about it? Please see if the warranty is tranferrable, just in case. I just need a small 5.1 pre/pro to replace an ADCOM 740 that flatlined 2 weeks ago.
  8. I see the 1-year warranty on Marantz refurbs at acc4less. Does the warranty transfer to me? Klipsch warranties do NOT transfer.
  9. Hmmm... What warranty remains? Thanks, Steve
  10. Built Aristocrats from EV blueprints in the 1960's with my Dad. Apparently, Paul Klipsch licensed the Aristocrat design to EV for better pricing. Thunderous sound on a Dynakit Stereo-35 with Jensen 12" + small horns! I have photos of a mahogany EV Aristocrat inside and out, with the magnificent EV SP-12 Alnico woofer with chrome-plated magnet cover! Those were the days!
  11. Hi Rick - Welcome to the Klipsch Forums! Please check your PM - I sent you personal email here a few hours ago, no joy. Thanks, Steve
  12. IMHO - 99% of sibilance from vinyl recordings is from undamped cantilever resonances in the pickup. I cut my teeth on GE Variable Reluctance on Garrard RC-80! I watched Shure M-55E's jump out of the groove! Had a collection of ADC, Empire, M/A, Ortofon, Shure, Stanton all mounted on headshells for quick A/B/C in 1974. Best overall was ADC XLM Mk II - better trackability than Shure Supertrack!
  13. Easy to inflate speaker sensitivity (dB/W) +3dB by stating output at 2.83 Volts, calling them 8Ω speakers, plopping in 4Ω woofers. My Forte' II's, Quartets, and KG4's all measure under 4Ω DCR. Passive radiators don't double the AC impedance to 8 Ω - ever!
  14. K-25-K is no longer needed - but thanks everybody for your help! Going with brand new woofers - a matched pair w/warranties.
